MATCHAandMORE is pleased to offer matcha/green powdered tea produced by Koyama-en and Shorai-en. The careful blending of different plant varieties grown on different types of soil is the key to the art of creating unique blends of matcha, whose quality remains consistent over time. The tea is shipped fresh directly from Japan and mailed to you; please allow 2-3 weeks for delivery.
MATCHAandMORE offers a selection of utensils for the study of chanoyu/The Japanese Way of Tea. Each item has been selected for its value and quality by Joyce Kubose, an instructor in chanoyu in the Chicago area.

MATCHAandMORE recommends books and places to study chanoyu. Chanoyu is a spiritual practice based on integrating the principles of harmony, respect, purity, and tranquility into one's everyday life through the simple act of making and sharing a bowl of tea.


2015 TEA-ZEN Calendar (21" X 11") features Japan's most eminent Zen masters. The Japanese calligraphy is written on washi/Japanese paper. It is designed to look like a scroll and is suitable for mounting or framing. Each month is written in both roman numerals and Japanese characters.

On the last page is the English translation of the calligraphy and explanation, done by Thomas L. Kirchner, a former Zen monk, who is presently working at Hanazono University in Kyoto, Japan. The calendar was produced with the cooperation of the Institute for Zen Studies, Kyoto, Japan. $30.00
