Jade Leaf Matcha Review

For this Jade Leaf Matcha review we tested the Organic Ceremonial Matcha which is made for sipping as tea.

We have seen other Jade Leaf Matcha reviews where they review the culinary grade matcha, which is not made for sipping as tea. Then they give it a poor rating, which isn't fair, because they are not using it as intended.

You can learn more about ceremonial grade vs culinary grade matcha by visiting our guide to the best matcha.

Jade Leaf Organic Ceremonial Matcha is a super premium matcha green tea powder sourced directly from organic farms Uji and Kagoshima, Japan.

It is 100% USDA Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder, all natural with nothing added, naturally gluten free and vegan.

Update: We have run into an issue with communication from Jade Leaf Matcha and we can no longer recommend them in good faith. Several of our emails have gone unanswered and we now recommend the matcha companies below.

Jade Leaf Matcha

Jade Leaf Organic Ceremonial Matcha

Our Rating 98/100

Jade Leaf Matcha was started in 2014 by two guys that loved matcha and found it difficult to buy high quality matcha at reasonable prices.

They set out to change all of that and Jade Leaf Matcha was formed.

Since then they have built relationships with tea farmers in Japan and customers across the globe to bring premium quality organic matcha to market at reasonable prices.

One of our favorite things about Jade Leaf Matcha is that they test their matcha for all kinds of things and publish the results!

Here is their Certificate of Analysis:

We love the transparency of the Jade Leaf Matcha brand!

The second thing that we love about Jade Leaf Matcha is that they put their customers before their profits and offer a "Love it or your money back"  Guarantee.

If you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase of Jade Leaf Matcha for any reason, just email them and they will refund your order in full, no questions asked.

That is the one of the traits that distinguish the best brands of matcha from the rest!

On with the Jade Leaf Matcha Review!

As you can see in the image below, Jade Leaf Matcha has that vibrant emerald green color that is shared by the highest quality ceremonial matchas.

You can also see that the grind is super fine powdery without any of the clumping that you sometimes find in lesser matchas.

I would characterize the aroma of the powder as fresh, grassy, earthy  and slightly sweet.

Next Step for the Jade Leaf Matcha Review is to prepare the matcha green tea and rate it on taste.

Jade Leaf Matcha Review - Taste

Matcha Green Tea Taste Rating 98/100

We prepared the Jade Leaf Matcha in the traditional manner with a matcha whisk and bowl.

Traditional Matcha Prep

We found the Jade leaf Matcha to be a very mild tasting matcha. Very smooth with a hint of grassiness.

It lacked any hint of bitterness and we enjoyed the flavor very much.

Keep in mind that we are reviewing the Jade Leaf organic ceremonial grade matcha, which is very different from the culinary grade.

We hope you have enjoyed our Jade Leaf Matcha Review. Please leave your comments below!
