What is Ceremonial Grade Matcha?

Outside Japan, most matcha consumers divide matcha into two types of matcha grades; ceremonial grade matcha and culinary grade matcha. The idea is that ceremonial grade matcha is a higher quality, and is good enough to drink near, whereas culinary grade matcha is more suitable for ingredient use in recipes due to its more pronounced bitter taste.  

In Japan, matcha is not categorized into ceremonial or culinary grade. In fact, there is no standardized matcha grading system with regulatory effect. Each matcha blend is evaluated based on its unique characteristics such as its color, taste, texture etc. The best type of matcha for lattes is to use either Ceremonial Matcha. These are much lower in bitterness compared to conventional “culinary grade matcha”, which makes them very versatile. Because they are less bitter, you can add much reduced levels of sweetener.  You can use our other ceremonial grade matcha powder blends to make lattes, but the costs will quickly add up. Most of the nuanced flavors will also be lost amidst the milk and sweetener.
