This special harvest was grown and imported just for us, by Mr. Saito, straight from Yame, in Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan. We are so happy to be the first company in America to bring you this incredible matcha. Upon opening the bag, you'll smell the rich, smooth chocolate aroma, and see the beautiful deep green color. Once prepared, this ceremonial grade matcha has a complex nutty, but smooth vegetal taste. As the matcha cools, the subtle chocolate notes become more apparent.
Every Fall and Spring Mr. Saito takes tea leaves from his crop to have them analyzed and then, based on the lab results, adjusts the water, fertilizer, and nutrients in the soil in order to ensure the best possible tea crop. This specific tea plant cultivar is called Okumidori, or "deep green," which accurately describes this matcha's beautiful color.

I have never tasted matcha like this
I've been a 3Leaf Matcha fan for years. Recently I started an enthusiastic switch to the Reserve option. It's smoothness requires less sugar and moments of peacefulness.
I've tried A LOT of Matchas in my 5+ years as a barista. This Matcha Reserve has smooth, nutty notes with a full, almost creamy finish. It surpasses the grades below and above it and is easily the most enjoyable matcha I've ever had.
Thank you, Luciana & 3 leaf crew for bringing the best matcha to my doorstep!
I’ve enjoyed every single flavored matcha I’ve ordered from 3Leaf but the Matcha Reserve…wowzers!! It’s not overly sweet or vegetal yet still has a wonderful flavor for just adding water or plant-based milk for latte style. It’s fantastic either way. I definitely plan to order more Matcha Reserve once mine is gone. Great price point. So much more affordable than coffee shop matcha lattes & just as delicious. 3Leaf has speedy shipping, too.
