What are the grades of matcha for cafe owners?
Generally, matcha powder falls under three grades. This includes ceremonial grade (e.g., premium organic first harvest matcha), classic grade, or culinary quality matcha used for recipes with additives such as non-dairy milk, ice creams, and bakery products. (1)
Additionally, ingredient grade matcha tea may be used as a thin consistency or for certain benefits such as caffeine content, antioxidants, and other label claims. The world of food & Bev has the fastest growing demand due to health and wellness consumables. This includes all types of matcha flavored snacks, matcha infused snacks and baked goods, and many other ways to use your wholesale green tea powder to boost the variety of products your cafe may offer.

Our classic grades of matcha possess subtle flavor, medium bitter taste, and a complex of savory bite. This flavor profile helps in food recipes that your cafe may wish to implement for customers (e.g., matcha lattes, matcha scones, etc.). (1)
Why cafe matcha is on the rise for wholesale customers
Matcha powder is gaining strong popularity in North America and Europe, owing to its high antioxidant levels, amino acids, minerals, and vitamins. The considerable range of health benefits that come with matcha makes it a powerful element to feature on menus for cafe owners for cafe businesses. In addition, matcha tea is a great natural food coloring. When added to recipes, matcha brings a naturally joyful, vivid green hue to any food product. (1) (3)
Since our foodservice matcha comes in wholesale sizes, you can leverage its high chlorophyll content to create food and Bev recipes that your customers will love, especially knowing it may help protect their bodies from free radicals and cell damage.

Matcha for Foodservice and Wholesale – Market Demand and Stats
The North American region has witnessed one of the highest recorded growth rates for the interest in matcha tea and green tea flavored products. This is primarily driven by increased reliance on wellness products in the form of food and beverage, essentially reminding us of the philosophy of "let thy food be thy medicine." (2) (3)

Market Analysis of Matcha for Cafes: Convenience is King
A recent survey we took from our existing foodservice accounts in the U.S. and Canada revealed that more than 30% of walk-in cafe customers expect their caffeinated beverage to be pre-made or already prepared within only minutes of coming into their local cafe. So ask us today for more information, or shop at our wholesale store if you're ready to leverage our Japanese tea products to propel the growth of matcha powder in your specialty market, region, or cafe business.
The Matcha market in North America is forecasted to exceed $3 billion annually within the next two to three years alone. And according to a new report by one of the leading reporting agencies on global green tea powder, the rising popularity and potential profit are not unfounded. The surging popularity of matcha has been precipitated by a longstanding history in Japan (this product is more than 1,000yr old), well-studied research into it being a 'cleaner' source of caffeine energy than coffee, and a range of other scientifically-backed health benefits.
