withinUs TruOrganic Matcha is a Premium Select Grade blend, exclusively created for us! Our matcha is from one of Japan’s oldest and most highly acclaimed tencha growing region. The leaves are handpicked and prepared using traditional methods, guaranteeing the highest nutritional value and a smooth, delicate taste, free from grit and bitterness. Our matcha contains absolutely no additives, sweeteners or fillers, and is expertly tested at every stage of production.
The tencha leaves used in withinUs TruOrganic Matcha are premium grade leaves from the first harvest of the year. First harvest leaves are graded from premium, then grade A through D, with premium leaves being considered the best of the best, having the highest quality of aroma and flavor. This is because they are full of nutrients - due to the cooler temperatures during their growing period, leaves from the first harvest grow more slowly than those from later harvests, allowing the nutrients to fully develop.
withinUs TruOrganic Matcha holds JAS/JONA certificates through the Japan Organic and Natural Foods Association, as well as USDA and Canadian Organic Certificates. This level of quality is rare and limited. Our matcha is grown without the use of fertilizers, nitrogen or chemicals, and is routinely tested for purity. The soil in which the plants are grown is also subject to frequent testing, ensuring that there are no contaminants (lead/fluoride) in the product.
