Tencha is the class of tea leaf cultivated typically to be stone-ground into Japanese matcha powder. The very same mindful efforts are poured into the harvest of these premium-grade Tencha tea leaves – and annually only a portion and reserved for use as a loose-leaf or tea-bag format.
Our Cold Brew Tencha is a means to enjoy a steeped green tea with many of the merits of the highest quality Japanese matcha powder; naturally high in antioxidants, L-theanine, and with a bit of caffeine (about 30mg/g).
What is Mizudashi Style? The Perfect Summer Brew
In Japan, Mizudashi style is a special way to brew green tea in cold water. Ideal for the summer (but fit for year-round), the process brings out more of the sweeter flavors rather than the more astringent tannins – resulting in a refreshing + healthy cup of cold brew tencha!
Serving Size, Total Servings, and How to Brew
Cold Brew Tencha contains 12 x 6g (2.54oz) sachets of tencha tea leaves. Many choose to brew the tea bags more than once, and a single brew can serve more than 4 x 8oz servings of tencha green tea.
Recommended Servings: This product contains at least 48 x 4oz servings. Directions: Place one or two tea bags in 1L (~33oz) of water and refrigerate overnight. Pour and enjoy!

What makes our Matcha Best
It was pleasing to see growing awareness of matcha in America, but we were dismayed by the low qualities available when visiting cafés, tea shops, and restaurants. So, on our following trips to Japan, we purchased small tins of the quality tea to bring home, along with tea bowls, scoops, and whisks. Soon we were in the habit of drinking a bowl of matcha twice a day! Turning loved ones onto it, and leading a growing audience into giving it a try.
Alright, I'm trying this matcha thing.
