Calm energy and focus.

The calming amino acid L-theanine is lauded for its ability to support a relaxed and alert state. No tea has more l-theanine than matcha. If the idea of feeling both energized and calm at the same time doesn’t make sense, it will after you try this matcha. Balanced, sustained energy. Used for centuries by Zen monks to energize the body, calm the mind and renew the spirit.

Ecologically sourced.

Our matcha is sourced from Kagoshima, the furthest point in Japan from industrial pollution and radiation, also home to Japan’s first national park. Our tea farm is located high in the mountains where cooler temperatures are a natural insect repellant (no pesticides here!). Farms in this mountainous region are also more protected from pesticide drift. If you’re drinking something every day for its health benefits, you want it to be the purest source possible! The highest quality ceremonial grade matcha on the market is not organic, and certified organic matchas are never made according to the highest standards of ceremonial grade. That changes now.

Ultimate flavor.

Our matcha is a cult favorite thanks to its unrivaled creamy umami flavor. Fresh, clean and grassy with savory undertones. Delivers the same quality and flavor of the highest grade ceremonial matcha created by renowned teamasters for tea ceremonies in Japan. The perfect morning or after-lunch indulgence for an unrivaled antioxidant infusion. Dominate your day with jedi-like thinking and creativity.

Good Quality Matcha, Invaluable Product Testing

I’ve tried dozens upon dozens of matcha teas from different prefectures and of many different qualities including many from the world-famous Tseun tea shop.

Pique is a great tea, but it certainly isn’t in the echelon of top tier matchas. The colour isn’t as vibrant green as you’d note with high end matchas, the flavour isn’t quite as complex - though it is very smooth and pleasant, and the grind also isn’t as fine as you’d find in world-class matcha.

With that said, this is still a great, high quality matcha. Additionally, the rigorous 3rd-party testing is an unequivocal account of the purity of this tea. I don’t think this can be overlooked; while Japan’s teas are typically much “cleaner” than the average tea from China, there are still many issues with mild, bacterial contamination, heavy metals (many of these matcha tea trees are very old and thus can reach and absorb metals deposited much deeper in the soil) and of course, due to the Fukushima disaster, high levels of ionic radioactive particles.

So, in summary, if you want the BEST matcha in the world: this isn’t it. You can find better tasting, more vibrant green matcha for the same price and even cheaper. However, if you are conscious of the common tea impurities and like to see bonafide lab data as opposed to imposing blind trust on tea producers, I think this is a great option.

Hi Nick, we're sorry if these tests have come across as elusive. This does not mean we have tests available for the public, and if you wish for us to help you further, please message us to assist directly at teamakers@piquetea.com.
