The FIRST matcha to Quadruple Toxin Screen for
- Heavy Metals & Fluoride
- Radioactive Isotopes
The FIRST matcha designed for mindfulness and shaded for 35% longer to produce more amino acids like l-theanine (nature’s Xanax) and umami flavor with each serving.
The FIRST matcha that meets the world's purest standards, yet delivers the same quality, potency and health benefits of the highest grade ceremonial grade matcha created by respected tea masters for formal tea ceremonies in Japan.
L-theanine in matcha helps to provide calm energy that supports a state of mindfulness. Time-released caffeine supports calm, sustained energy.
Ceremonial Grade Matcha has been used for centuries by Zen monks to energize the body, calm the mind and rejuvenate the spirit.

HOW WE MAKE OUR MATCHA MATTERS
Our matcha is sourced from Kagoshima, the furthest point from industrial pollution and radiation. Also home to Japan's first national park and neighbor to Okinawa, a famous Blue Zone where natives live the longest lives in the world!
We interviewed many of the top tea farmers to identify a partner. The site of our tea farm is located high in the mountains where cooler temperatures are a natural insect repellant. The only method our farmer Mr. Tofuku uses to control pests is clipping the tender leaves of tea trees. Pests don’t like munching on more fibrous mature leaves. Farms in the mountains are also more protected from 'pesticide drift.'
3. UNPARALLELED QUALITY
We collaborated with Mr. Mori, a 9th-degree teamaster (there are only ~15 in the world) to create the Sun Goddess Matcha. Hundreds of samples were tasted, analyzed for l-theanine and blended for creamy umami flavor before creating a superior matcha like ours.
4. TOXIN SCREENED
The final step is exhaustive toxin screening and analysis to ensure safety and purity. Third-party lab tested to be free of pesticides, herbicides, fluoride, heavy metals, toxic mold and radioactive isotopes by batch!
HOW TO USE SUN GODDESS MATCHA
Simply tear, pour and mix in water.
We recommend mixing 1 packet in 12oz of Hot or Cold water (ideal hot temp is 170F).
Whisking is only required if you want froth.
Since the Sun Goddess matcha is finely ground according to the highest ceremonial grade standards, stirring or shaking in a bottle is enough to prepare it.
HOW MUCH TO DRINK?
We recommend 1-2 servings a day. Many studies have also shown that consuming matcha every day for 3 months can support healthy cognitive function, assist your body's natural detoxification and increase the body’s natural rate of thermogenesis (the rate of calorie burn).
FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
"What Is The Sun Goddess?"
Our matcha is sourced from a lush valley at the southernmost tip of the Japanese island chain. It is the furthest distance from environmental toxins and neighbors with Okinawa (home to some of the longest living people on Earth). The source of our matcha is more pristine and untouched than any other. Legend has it that the SUN GODDESS Amaterasu appeared at a volcano within sight of this tea garden and blessed the region and its people with good health!
"What Are The Toxin Tolerance Levels?"
Our Sun Goddess Matcha has gone through rigorous third-party lab testing with SGS, one of the leading international labs headquartered in Switzerland. There are non-detectable levels of Fluoride and Heavy Metals (Arsenic, Cadmium, Lead, Mercury, Chromium, Aluminium, Nickel); Pesticides/Herbicides, Mycotoxins and Radioactive isotopes. (ND means <0.1 PPM for heavy metals, pesticides and toxins and <20 Bq/Kg for radioactive isotopes).
"Why Is Organic So Important?"
Most Japanese farms are not organic and tend to be situated close to each other. When one farm uses chemical herbicides or pesticides, wind carries these chemicals to adjacent farms causing 'pesticide drift.' That’s why the volume of organic tea produced in Japan is extremely low compared to China. Just because a matcha is labeled as ‘ceremonial grade’ doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the healthiest matcha for you. There are no clearly defined standards or guidelines for what constitutes ‘ceremonial grade’ and most are not organic.
If you are drinking matcha for health benefits, you're likely to drink it every day and should find as pure a source as possible. The daily consumption of toxins can lead to long-term health risks.
"How Is Matcha Different From Other Green Teas?"
The matcha process begins while leaves are still growing. Plants are shaded prior to harvest to increase chlorophyll and amino acid content to improve the appearance and flavor of the tea. Chlorophyll gives matcha its green color and aids in detoxification. It helps flush away heavy metals from the body. Amino acids like l-theanine helps reduce stress and provides calm, focused energy. It's also what gives matcha its creamy, umami flavor!
"How Many Servings In Each Carton?"
Each carton has 28 sachets. Each sachet contains 2g and makes a 12oz serving.
"How Many Servings Should I Drink A Day?"
Clinical studies typically recommend a minimum to 300-500mg of catechins per day for results. Since our serving size is 12oz, we suggest drinking 1-2 servings a day. Many studies have also shown that consuming matcha every day for 3 months can support healthy cognitive function, assist your body's natural detoxification and increase in the body’s natural rate of thermogenesis (the rate at which you burn calories).
"What Is The Shelf Life?"
Our Sun Goddess Matcha can stay fresh for up to 24 months.
"How To Prepare Sun Goddess Matcha?"
Our Sun Goddess Matcha is designed for you to take wherever you go. Simply tear, pour, and mix in your water. We recommend using purified water and temperatures of 170F. Whisking is only required if you wish you create froth. Since the Sun Goddess matcha is finely ground according to the highest ceremonial grade standards, stirring or shaking in a bottle is enough to prepare it.
"When Should I Drink It?"
Due to its caffeine content, matcha is ideally consumed in the morning or afternoon. According to Chinese medicine, matcha is considered to be a cooling food. This means that people with sensitive stomachs might experience discomfort when drinking matcha on an empty stomach. If you are one of these people, just make sure you wait until after you’ve had breakfast or lunch to drink your matcha!
"How Much Is Shipping To CA And Other Countries?"
Our shipping to Canada is at a flat rate of $16, including tariffs and other charges. International Shipping to other countries varies from $16-$18 depending on your location and the quantity purchased. Taxes and additional fees that may apply are not included in the rate. Most international shipping for premium matcha from Japan is around the $30-$40 range.
