What makes our Black Label Ceremonial Matcha
Top 3 leaves: Our high ceremonial black label Matcha is a vivid electric green and tastes sweet and almost creamy. We use only the top 3 leaves compared to other Matcha products which use the middle and even bottom of the plant. For reference, The Matcha plant is fairly tall, about 3 feet, so it contains obviously hundreds of leaves. Traditional Ceremonial Matcha is the top 7-8 leaves and Got Matcha has the only source for the top 2-3 leaves, thus the black label Matcha. Most companies use low quality leaves which are much cheaper, bitter, contains little to no L-Theanine and less EGCG. Bitterness also indicates low L-Theanine content!
100% ORGANIC and LAB TESTED: Every batch is tested for the highest nutrition profile, including high Theanine content. Many Matcha Manufacturers don’t send their matcha products for lab testing because of high test fees. Every metal and pesticide is tested for and the test passes with flying colors…the contaminants are non-detectable.
Harvest: Our matcha leaves are harvested only once a year, and only the top 3 leaves are pulled for our special made batches. Over-harvested matcha crops are diluted in nutrients and flavour profile. Other companies harvest a crop 6-8 times a year, while our tea farm harvests 1-2 times per year.
