Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf traditionally consumed to boost energy and promote focus. Unlike other teas where you are drinking only an extract, with matcha the entire leaf is consumed to provide not only caffeine but a whole cup of amino acids, nutrients, and chlorophyll. Energy without the crash, focus without the jitters.

Matcha is at its peak flavor during the first four to six months from its creation. Flavor is not the only factor that plays into taste, the size of each particle in the powder can cause your matcha experience to be chalky & bitter.That is why we worked tireless with our farm to reduce the particle size to 9 microns compared to the usual 12 micron particle size. With every sip you get mouthful of sweet umami with none of the bitterness.
Would you eat a stale salad? Probably not. The same goes for matcha.
Our “Farm to bowl” promise means that we will never carry matcha beyond the six month mark from the date of its creation. Always fresh, delicious, and packed full of the cleanest energy on the planet.
Our founders were first introduced to this mineral rich distinctively tasting matcha by Max's family in Japan. The Ando's purchased their tea's from this region, known for the fertile soils packed with higher levels of nitrogen. Still to this day it is one of Kyushu's best kept secrets.
Only the highest quality organic leaves are used to create Nekohama’s matcha. To receive the Japanese organic standard certification (JAS), Nekohama must meet a 95% or more organic threshold, a much stricter quality standard that exceeds USDA Organic Standards.*
Caffeine by itself isn’t perfect. Matcha, unlike coffee, contains caffeine and L-theanine, an amino acid which promotes focus~attention~concentration, clarity, relaxation, while reducing stress. Nekohama’s matcha balances you with pure, clean energy while keeping you focused and grounded.
Matcha is great for the mind. It’s packed with caffeine, L-theanine, EGCG, and other brain-boosting amino acids that have shown to enhance overall cognitive functions and promote attention, focus, mood, and energy.
Matcha has been found to fortify the immune system with the help of antioxidant powerhouses like Vitamin C, Zinc, and Chlorophyll. Matcha’s additional antioxidants may also reduce oxidative stress and combat the free radicals known for causing diseases like cancer.
Matcha has anti-inflammatory benefits and the Vitamin E found in matcha may protect your appearance from age-related damage by protecting the health of your skin, hair, and nails. Inflammation-fighting Magnesium, also known to help the immune system, promote relaxation, increase bone strength, is abundant inside matcha.
EGCG, another antioxidant most often found on matcha, promotes mood, memory function, and cognitive functions. Some studies have even shown matcha to increase the body’s metabolism.
