Only the highest grades of matcha green tea, like the one served at Mezza9 cafe, are used in the tea ceremony (chanoyu). Grown in the misty hills of Uji inside the ancient city of Kyoto, Japan. Its unique climate has produced the finest matcha teas in the world, cherished by Samurai before each battle and revered by Zen Monks for its Zen-like alertness while meditating. Our matcha has a exceptionally smooth flavor profile; rich, deep, earthy flavor profile yet light and refreshing.
