HUG THE TEA has three different grades of Matcha from Kagoshima, Japan. Grade A, B and C. The Ceremonial Matcha A is made of the first flush leaves, so this is the highest quality Matcha. The Premium Matcha B is strong in taste and really nice for Matcha Lattes (green cappuccino!) For example with soymilk or almondmilk. Matcha B is also really good to add in other recipes. This Classic Matcha C is made of the third flush (autumn harvest) tea leaves. For cooking and baking this quality is most appropriate, because this grade C is lower in quality (not suitable for drinking) and more bitter and stronger in taste. Perfect for baking a delicious Matcha cake! Read here more about the different grades of Matcha!
