Smith Matcha Tin
- The traditional tea of the Japanese tea ceremony. Smith Tea's matcha is made from tender green leaves known as Tencha harvested in early spring in Katsura, Gifu Prefecture. Brilliant green in color, matcha has a rich, slightly sweet vegetal flavor and aroma. This matcha is versatile in a hot, iced or culinary ingredient application.
- Tasting Notes: Spirulina, cashew, malt For best flavor, bring spring or freshly drawn filtered water to 175 degrees. Add between 1/2 and 1 teaspoon matcha per cup. Whisk vigorously for at least 30 seconds. Drink while contemplating this floating world.

- Smith Teamakers was co-founded by Steven Smith, a Portland native passionate about the art of tea since he was a child drinking his grandmother's tea. Steve made a worldwide name for himself best known as the co-founder of Stash Tea Company, followed by founding Tazo tea. Upon selling Tazo tea to Starbucks, with the hopes of retiring, Steve moved to France with his wife, Kim and son. After a few years, the itch to create resurfaced upon their return to Portland, inspired the start of Smith Teamaker, a nod to the chocolatiers and winemakers Steve befriended in Provence.
