Chado x Sinensis Ceremonial Matcha

Our ceremonial matcha comes from the Japanese prefecture of Mie. Historically, Mie has only supplied tea to Japan and Europe. Only recently have they expanded to the US. Together with our cousins from Tijuana, Sinensis Tea Bar, we are introducing a delicious matcha from this beautiful region.

Uji Genmaicha

Treat yourself to the Japanese way to brew crisp, slightly buttery genmaicha. The earthy flavor of the bancha is given new life with every breath of the toasted rice kernels and matcha. The result is a tea that has hovered for centuries at the crossroads of new and old Japan.
