Pure Leaf recently launched its first line of matcha teas for home brewing. The matcha is shade-grown on a Rainforest Alliance Certified plantation in Kagoshima, Japan.

Pure Leaf’s matcha sachets come in two flavors: Pure Matcha and Matcha with Ginger.

“As more Americans choose to make tea part of their daily routines, they are looking for an authentic home brewed tea experience at an accessible price,” said George Hamilton, Unilever’s Tea Director in a company press release. “Both uncompromised and uncomplicated, the new Pure Leaf home brewed Matcha Teas allow consumers to enjoy high-quality matcha at home in just a few simple steps.”

Each jar contains 12 sachets; and the line is distributed nationally to grocery stores and online retailers. For more information, visit pureleaf.com.
