Made from medium grade, hand-picked, first flush leaves, this low caffeine matcha contains 80% less caffeine with only a 10% decrease in nutritional value compared to regular ceremonial matcha. Caffeine is naturally extracted using fresh water, through safe, innovative techniques. This matcha is freeze-dried and ground in traditional stone mills. It has slightly less aroma than regular matcha and a light and smooth flavour, not as deep and complex. It has a fresh-cut grass aroma, leafy vegetal flavour and a light finish.
