Over the years, I have been approached by many companies to carry their matcha. However, I could sense that every single one of these businesses were more focused on their marketing campaigns versus the quality of their Matcha.
I’ve dialed in a connection with a direct supplier of Matcha. Oh my God, you wouldn’t believe the nonsense that is going on with the false marketing of Matcha. I knew to go with my intuition.
There are around 6-7 different grades of Matcha depending on who you ask. They mainly fall under Culinary Grade and Ceremonial Grade. The Ceremonial Grade has a Grade A, Grade B, and a Grade C option, while the Culinary grade has 4-5 different grades.
Ceremonial Grade B Matcha, is two times more expensive than the top Culinary Grade A Matcha. Ceremonial Grade A is about 40% higher in cost compared to Ceremonial Grade B. Then there is the Ceremonial Grade C option lol, where they blend the Ceremonial Grade B together with the Culinary Grade.
Do you think that a company is going to pay 40-100% more in price for the Ceremonial Grade A Matcha over a much less expensive Grade B or Grade C option, when they can call their Matcha “Ceremonial Matcha” regardless of the quality difference? What’s even more crazy, my supplier was explaining to me that there are companies who knowingly purchase the culinary grade matcha at 1/4 the price, and sell it as Ceremonial Grade Matcha on their websites. He even had to convince one company to not use the word Ceremonial in their superfood blend for ethical purposes.
Sometimes a person says to me, I found this product on Amazon for cheaper. I tell them that if they want to buy it from Amazon, then be my guest. It’s not just matcha that has many grades. Practically every Superfood out there has a variety of different grades.
For example, I can get a lower grade of Maca for a substantial discount, and it would be filled with all of the shriveled defect Maca Roots. You also have to be careful of fake fillers, which fill up extra space. For example, I heard of one company that sold Mesquite Syrup stating that it was Yacon Syrup when the big Dr. Oz Yacon Syrup Boom went down. I’ve also tasted a Maca, which must of had Mesquite or something else in it. I’ve even heard of city tap water being used to water down apple cider vinegar. The possibilities are endless.
With our Superfoods, people can sense the difference by the taste and how our Superfoods make them feel.
For example, a testimonial just came in by someone who bought our Sunflower Lecithin and then wanted to save a couple of dollars extra by purchasing another bag on Amazon. He states:
“Your sunflower lecithin is outstanding. dry and fluffy. had ordered some organic brand on Amazon and it was clumpy and gummy.”
My promise to you is that we always get the best of the best, and offer it at the best pricing possible.
I’m like the main boss of the Raw Foods Drug Cartel here. I supply you with the most potent one-ingredient Superfoods, which provides an energetic explosion in your brains, which keeps you coming back for more. The side effects are healing benefits that happens to the human body lol.
Now this Top Ceremonial Grade A Matcha is no different. I am certain that no one here has ever tried a Ceremonial Matcha like this one.
The Ceremonial Matcha is harvested only from the first harvest of the season in order to get the youngest tender tea leaves. For this particular Ceremonial Grade Matcha, they only hand select the top three sprouts at the very top of the tea bush. These extremely delicate sprouted leaves have the highest nutrient quality. They contain more chlorophyll compared to the older tea leaves, and is responsible for imparting more of a vibrant breath-taking emerald green hue. These tender young leaves also have a higher concentration of caffeine and L-theanine.
It still only has the amount of caffeine as a 1/3 cup of coffee would have, but the energetic hit that you will get from this particular Ceremonial Matcha is the real thing. It makes your focus extremely smooth and clear, and provides you with a nice smooth hit of energy. Whereas coffee will bounce you up and down all over the place.
Why is this?
Since L-theanine is loaded in this particular Ceremonial Matcha, It buffers the negative effects of caffeine by inducing a feeling of relaxation by increasing alpha brain wave activity. This is what differentiates the caffeine content and energy boost one would experience with coffee versus this particular Ceremonial Matcha. The quality of caffeine and L-theanine naturally found in this matcha balance each other out. Therefore, you get to experience elevated moods along with a calm, yet alert energy boost. This can last up to 6 hours without experiencing a “crash” or jittery feeling that one can anticipate after drinking coffee.
This state of mind is heavily produced by this particular Ceremonial Grade A Matcha. It’s like Matcha for the Raw Foods Elite, which is you guys, because you buy from me. Furthermore, due to the tender baby sprouts, you will never experience another matcha out there with such a smooth consistency and subtle flavor.
What we are offering to you today is the Top Grade A Ceremonial Matcha and the Top Grade A Culinary Matcha.
Now our particular Ceremonial Matcha, is an absolute delicacy, which stands alone, and doesn’t need any extra sweeteners or ingredients in order to mix with it. It’s meant to be taken by itself. You simply mix it with hot water, whisk it, open Matt Monarch’s long morning email, and enjoy.
Culinary, on the other hand, you can mix it with whatever you want. It would be considered a waste to mix our Ceremonial Grade Matcha with other ingredients, and that is why there is a Culinary Grade. I mean, if you don’t mind spending more than double to mix the Ceremonial Grade with other things, then you can definitely do that. That’s probably something that I would do. There are people who will literally bake cookies, only with Ceremonial Matcha.
Since our Ceremonial Grade is loaded with higher levels of L-theanine, it is responsible for imparting a natural sweetness. This is why you drink this delicacy by itself without a sweetener or milk. These tender baby sprouts make the consistency extremely smooth, and the flavor is so very subtle. It develops a natural sweetness all on its own. Whereas the culinary grade will be more bitter like more of a tea flavor.
This exquisite Ceremonial Matcha Tea that we are offering you today, is the highest possible grade of Matcha that you could possibly get. My supplier is endlessly trying to get people to be honest and to raise their grade of Matcha a bit. I am so extreme at the other end of the spectrum, he told me that I could get away with the Ceremonial Grade B option, and nobody would know the difference, because the Grade A is extremely uncommon.
I told him no, and we are going all the way here baby with Ceremonial Grade A.
Now, the Culinary Grade is not bad. It is what most people are used to when it comes to Matcha. It’s generally used to mix with other ingredients. If you have any type of matcha blend product with other ingredients in it, it’s definitely one of the culinary grades (even if they say ceremonial).
Instead of being harvested from the first harvest of the season, The Premium Culinary Grade A is from the 2nd harvest in the early summer. The lower culinary grades are generally taken from the 3rd harvest or older. There is one mid-higher grade where they mix the 2nd and 3rd season harvest together. All of the grades of Culinary Matcha tea leaves are “older” and have been exposed to more sunlight. These older tea leaves impart a bolder flavor due to higher concentrations of antioxidants known as catechin (contributing more of those “bitter” notes once culinary grade matcha is prepared).
The culinary grades still provides a beautiful color. It has a more subdued shade of green since it is made from the older tea leaves due to that extra exposure to sunlight. The lower the grade of Culinary Matcha, the more yellow it becomes. While you can drink the culinary grade Matcha straight, it’s better not to. Its strong and slightly bitter taste is intended to be combined with other ingredients used in food and beverage recipes. Culinary grade’s mildly astringent flavor is what allows it to mix well with various smoothies, lattes, and other milk-based drinks.
There are many different grades of Culinary Matcha. The lowest culinary grade is produced with the least amount of delicate leaves, the powder isn’t as fine as other matcha grades, the oldest leaves are used, it is a darker yellow/green, and it is very bitter. It is the most affordable grade and is generally used for large-scale brewing and most supplements. Unfortunately, many big coffee shops use this lower grade for beverages. If you are getting a Matcha Latte at Starbucks, you are likely consuming the lowest grade of Matcha.
Then there are a handful of Culinary grades above that before you get to our top Premium Grade A Culinary Grade Matcha, which we are offering to you today along with our Top Grade A of Ceremonial Matcha.
For example, the next grade up from the lowest Culinary Grade of Matcha is generally mixed with older tea leaves that have stronger flavors. This gives it more of a thicker consistency, which works for using in recipes that contain dairy products, like ice cream, buttercream, and the like. The next culinary grade up, generally comes from both the second and third harvests.
Now the top Premium Culinary grade is the other Matcha what we are offering to you today. It’s more potent compared to all of the other Culinary Grades, which brings the flavor a bit closer to the Ceremonial Grade Matcha. The tea leaves all come from the second harvest in the early summer, which still provides a beautiful color, and a rich, distinctive robust flavor, which is perfect for blended preparations like lattes, blended drinks, smoothies, and recipes.
Rest assured that if you are getting either our Culinary Grade, Ceremonial Grade Matcha, or both, you are getting the top, best of the best of each.
For our Ceremonial Grade A Matcha, I had to put this bad boy in a fancy glass black jar. Our Culinary Matcha will still come in our new regular standard white bags.
When you get a 3-pack, the Ceremonial ‘Grade A’ Matcha comes to $46.70 each for 4 ounces.
I know that may sound expensive to some of you. However, 4oz is a lot, especially of this precious material, which is the best deal ever.
You won’t find anything this fresh either. We just did a 2-day air import and it arrived literally 4 days ago. Amazon stuff sits there forever causing Superfoods to get all gummy and nasty. If I don’t recycle Superfoods fast, you see inventory blowouts. It will be very rare that a Superfood will get past 6 months old with me, usually much less. It’s what I do, and excel at.
When you get a 3-pack of our Culinary Grade A Matcha, 4 ounces is only $17.70 each.
