Geika: “Glorious Moon” Matcha is a fabulous hand-picked matcha tea from Kyoto’s Uji Valley.
All the characteristics of brilliant, ceremonial-grade matcha tea powder are here: an anti-oxidant powerhouse with a vibrant green colour, richness of flavour and a satisfying finish.
Just like the Unkaku Matcha, the Geika Matcha is shade-grown for extra flavour. The plants are shaded for 20 days before harvest, forcing the plants to produce more chlorophyll and amino acids.
Brewing & Enjoying

This tea is perfect for vegans or those that crave a creamy warm texture to their teas. It's a perfect middle path for me because I generally don't enjoy green teas. It's like a perfect marriage between a green tea and a black tea. The flavours seem to intensify on a second or third infusion of the tea leaves.
We're very glad you enjoy the Jinxuan oolong, Misbah.
I recently bought this via special order.The earthy aroma and complexity of flavour is something I've never tasted before in a tea.Just magnificent.
It is indeed a wonderful tea. Thanks for the glowing review Konrad!
This sencha is fabulous. Such intensity and purity of flavour.One of the best I've tried
Tried this today at the Melbourne (first) Tea Festival and it was amazing! Smooth, sweet and natural with all its goodness. It was just mesmerizing watching the green tea master perform the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Returned multiple times for more! Definitely how green tea should be known to the general public. Thank you for the awesome experience!
Thank you for the feedback! We're looking forward to sharing this amazing tea again in the near future.
This tea has a fabulous earthiness and funkiness. But really it's like a wine that needs to be cellared for a few years. Good Puer aged for a few years is tea like no other. The roasted earthy notes will intensify and soften over time.
The Bordeaux of teas...Love that description
