Matcha green tea powder is a traditional Japanese green tea that has been used in Japanese tea ceremonies for over a thousand years. Matcha is actually a powdered form of the entire high-quality green tea leaf, which means that it is very conveniently dissolvable in hot or cold water, without the need for tea bags or steeping.
So you just basically drink almost the entire leaf when you make a cup of matcha green tea. This provides much more nutrition then a typical cup of green tea. In fact, it has been said that you would have to drink 10 cups of regular brewed green tea to equal the nutrition in just 1 cup of matcha green tea!
Fukuoka Natural Farming Transition
Haraki-Gordon Matcha Green Tea powder is the highest grade tea on the market — Imperial grade with the distinction of being gifted to the Emperor. It has won awards! There is no higher quality matcha on the market, or a better type of farming used to cultivate it:
As of early 2019, the Haraki-Gordon farms in Japan are being converted to the Masanobu Fukuoka style of Natural Farming. This type of farming is one where no chemicals are used at all. (Organic farming still uses chemicals — our tea does not.) What this means is that all use of any pesticides, fertilizers or fungicides, etc has been completely halted.
The farms will also refrain from using any type of pruning, trimming, tilling or weeding procedures as well. This type of natural farming practice was pioneered by Masanobu Fukuoka, who “was a Japanese farmer and philosopher celebrated for his natural farming and re-vegetation of desert-ified lands. He was a proponent of no-till, no-herbicide grain cultivation farming methods traditional to many indigenous cultures, from which he created a particular method of farming, commonly referred to as “natural farming” or “do-nothing farming”.
I am beyond proud to help bring such a product to our US market, and I know that you will love the tea as well.
A Family Farm and Business
Haraki-Gordon Matcha Green Tea is grown on the Haraki family farm in Shizuoka, Japan; one of the most famous green tea growing areas of the world. The Haraki family has been growing this type of green tea for over 700 years!
I came across this tea locally in Sarasota, as my good friend Izumi Haraki-Gordon distributes her family’s tea at the Farmer’s Market downtown. This pristine tea is imported directly from her family farm where she grew up…and now I have the pleasure of being able to provide it to you!
I absolutely love this tea and I drink it in some form every single day…I usually just put it into my smoothie every day to get the great benefits without the fuss of drinking it hot.
The amount of tea in one bag is 3 ounces of tea powder, which will make 200 8-ounce tea cups or 100 16-ounce water bottles! You only need about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon per serving, so it lasts a long time! Note that the best quality is with refrigeration after opening.
The amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in this tea is off the charts. It contains vitamins A (beta-carotene), B1, B2, B3 (B complex), B5, C, E, H, K and lots of chlorophyll!
There is also an extremely powerful antioxidant called EGCG, which is the most abundant catechin in tea. Studies have demonstrated that green tea and EGCG can be regarded as extremely useful for the maintenance of cardiovascular and metabolic health.

I just received the order of this matcha tea and I love it. I previously was using a different brand and it really wasn’t pleasant tasting but I continued using it because of the health benefits. There was always some left over in the bottom of the cup so I started putting it in my smoothies so I wouldn’t be able to taste it.
The first cup I had of this tea was amazing. It tasted very mild and delicious and there were no left over dregs in the bottom of my cup.
This is the first thing I do in the morning. Before anything else, I have my cup of this matcha tea! Starts my day off right!

So much better than what I was using. A much better taste and there’s nothing left in the bottom of the cup. I drink it first thing in the morning to start the day out right.

Love,Love,Love this product. I received it in Australia with no delivery problems and the taste of this tea does not compare with any other brands I have tried. Other brands have left a bitter aftertaste but this feels smoother and nourishing with no bitter aftertaste at all. I have previously been unable to give up my black tea in the morning but now I have replaced it with this matcha tea as I love it so much. It gives me more energy and focus for the day. I highly recommend this product even the dispenser bottle is easy to use with no mess 😊
