2014 Winter Specials--


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.

THANK YOU for your patronage during 2014 and for being the most valued MATCHAandMORE customer!
May we all have grateful hearts as we end 2014 and may you greet the new year with good health and a strong spirit!


Koicha/Thick tea

of the Japanese National Tea Competition! Tenjyu is delightfully fragrant with
a very smooth, elegant taste, which reflects its name of “blessings from heaven.”

nature to develop its delicious flavor over 6 months from May to November.

through the end of 2014. 20g Tenjyu $48.00 - The premier gift!
