What comes to a customer’s mind when they hear your brand name? Is it your high-quality goods? Your trendiness or innovative products? Your mission to support the community or source specialized ingredients?
It’s important to amplify your brand’s strengths with every product or service you offer, and we want to ensure that you have the info you need to seamlessly incorporate premium Japanese matcha into your branding message. Here are a few ways the quality, flavor and high level of health benefits of Ikeda’s bulk matcha enhances your unique brand messaging.
Is your product premium? Do consumers look to you when they want flavor perfection or a refined experience? If quality and status are your calling cards, our matcha is a perfect compliment to your distinguished branding message. Matcha at its core is the epitome of attention to detail. Our tea leaves are specially grown then carefully sorted to ensure that you get the highest quality bulk matcha green tea possible. Ikeda’s matcha is carefully developed by our head of production, a 10th degree Chashi or tea master, which no other matcha manufacturer can offer.
Ikeda’s bulk matcha comes in different grades, all expertly crafted by our tea master for different uses. At the top is high end ceremonial grade matcha. It’s a beautiful, vibrant green and has a mildly sweet and umami flavor, ideal for drinking alone with hot or cold water.
Just below this is our expertly developed culinary grade matcha, which has a stronger flavor and a slightly less vibrant green hue. Culinary grade matcha is perfect for flavor mixes and unique formulations because the flavor of the matcha stands out from the other ingredients.
Next is industrial matcha which has the same expert crafting and health benefits as our other matcha grades, but flavor and color better suited for supplements and beauty products.
A major part of matcha’s popularity comes from its superfood status as a natural source of health benefits. By incorporating matcha into your lineup of food, beverage, supplement, and beauty products, you may be able to amplify the health callouts in your own branding message. Below are a few of matcha’s potential health benefits that you should thoroughly research and consider for your own product messaging:
If your brand message involves protecting the food supply chain, avoiding genetically modified ingredients, and sourcing the finest organic ingredients, Ikeda’s bulk matcha can provide the non-GMO and organic certifications to enhance and further your message.
We source our tea leaves from family-owned farms in Kagoshima, which is the largest organic farming region in Japan. Kagoshima’s soil is naturally enriched with unique minerals from the active Sakurajima volcano, giving Ikeda’s tea leaves a natural boost in nourishment throughout the growing process.
Ikeda’s bulk matcha is developed under strict environmental guidelines to ensure that our tea is natural and our growing process protects the local environment. We are proud to be non-GMO Project certified, and to offer a broad range of organic matcha in grades from industrial to ceremonial to cater to the needs of supplement manufacturers and elite tea brands alike.
