Our Ceremonial Grade organic matcha varieties are the highest quality, freshest available in the US. Harvested in early spring from the youngest tea leaves at the top of the plant, they have a comforting aroma, thick silky froth, and rich, slightly sweet taste. High-quality matcha such as our Ceremonial varieties are never bitter or grassy, but smooth and mellow. As one moves up the scale toward the top tiers of matcha, the color becomes a more vivid green and the flavor becomes even more creamy and sweet.
Translated to Heavenly Tea Leaves, Mana is perfect for those new to matcha or those who drink it often and would like a high-quality, everyday matcha that is also a good value. It has a vibrant green color and rich flavor perfect for daily Usucha (thin tea). If you drink matcha regularly, please compare the taste and price of Mana with other companies. We are certain you will be immediately impressed!
