From the 17th - 20th of May (11am-6pm), Good Mood Matcha will be at Old Spitalfields Market, serving all matcha inspired drinks, bites, and treats. They'll also have free tasters this weekend.
Inspired by the health benefits of a daily matcha and armed with nothing but a backpack, Good Mood Matcha founder, Max set out on a mission to find the tastiest tea leaves.
He traveled far and wide across Japan with his trusted notebook; visiting farms, sampling matcha, and touring factories. And it was in the Spring of 2017 that he found an independent family-run tea farm in Uji in Kyoto. Max has worked closely with them ever since, to produce their very own blend of ceremonial grade matcha.
Only the tips of the youngest leaves from the first Spring harvest, known as the Ichiban-cha go into Good Mood Matcha. After harvest, the fresh leaves are steamed, gently cooled and then scattered evenly over a flat surface to dry completely. The leaves are then known as Tencha, their refined fragrance and flavour captured beautifully. Finally, they’re traditionally stone-milled into a fine powder before reaching us here at Good Mood HQ.
So be sure to check them out this weekend!
