Matchaeologist is the world’s leading purveyors of artisanal matcha green tea powder. Experience the most highly prized range of ceremonial & culinary matcha.
Matchæologist® is an artisanal Japanese matcha green tea brand that focuses on premium-quality matcha and contemporary matcha-ware products. We specialise in producing the purest and most potent form of green tea at the highest-end of the quality spectrum, or what we call 'artisanal grade' matcha.
Served by the world's leading tea sommeliers and highly regarded by tea connoisseurs, our range of matcha is acclaimed for its key differentiating characteristics — vivid pine green colour, refreshing 'ooika' aromas and an exquisite savoury 'umami' flavour profile — a result of the meticulous process that starts with manually extracting only the most tender, highly prized parts of the virgin leaves of shade-grown tea trees, and culminates in artisan-roasting each batch to perfection, to bring out the finest nuances of flavour in every roast.
The distillation of our master tea blenders' and farmers' generations of experience, our ceremonial matcha range is hand-picked from the topmost, virgin leaves of shade-grown tea-trees during the first harvest to create outstanding grades of matcha that rival fine wines with the sophistication and breadth of their flavours. Our ceremonial ranges are ideal for brewing on their own, with warm or ice cold water, or with small amounts of milk. The higher the grade, the sweeter, less bitter, and more umami-rich they are.
