5 of the best matcha powders you can buy (tried & tested)

Published by Finn Hayden

The health benefits of green tea are well documented, and we've previously published a guide about what we believe to be the best decaf green tea you can buy.

Matcha powder is just powdered green tea, but because it's a powder it's more versatile and can be used to make things like lattes. We wanted to round up the best matcha powder that you can buy in the UK, let's get into it:

Perfect Ted

If you're a fan of the TV show Dragons' Den then you might recognise the name Perfect Ted from a recent episode. At the time, the brand was mainly promoting a matcha energy drink, but the brand also sells a matcha powder which is really excellent. Every ingredient in the powder is organic and each 30g powder of the powder contains 52mg of caffeine as well as antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. This is the only matcha powder we've included in this guide which has actually won a 'Great Taste' award, which it won back in 2022. Learn more and buy it here - tesco.com

Vivid Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder

The Vivid brand has been around since 2013 and has been touting the benefits of matcha powder long before it took off in popularity in the West. The matcha powder produced by Vivid is an organic premium grade powder which is made from 100% pure ground Matcha Green Tea Leaf. The green tea used to make this powder comes from the hills of Nishio in Japan, so it's about as authentic as it gets. As the team at Vivid state on the website, you can use this matcha powder for drinks, but it also works great when sprinkled on porridge or even in stews.

Naturya SuperLatte Matcha

We've included a number of products from the Naturya brand within our guides, such as the excellent greens powder, but we think the SuperLatte Matcha powder from the brand is one of the best products that Naturya makes. If you want to make a matcha latte then this powder is perfect - it combines delicious matcha powder with coconut milk, cinnamon, and reishi mushroom. The green tea used to make this powder is grown in the shade, which helps to preserve its chlorophyll content. Once it is ready to be used, it is steamed, air-dried, and ground by stone into a super-fine powder using traditional Japanese practices. Learn more and buy it here -ocado.com

Sweet Revolution

For a matcha powder which has a sweet taste but still contains no sugar, we'd recommend the matcha latte powder from Sweet Revolution - it's made using unrefined coconut nectar and coconut milk, so it has a real creaminess and a subtle sweetness. There is also a small amount of Madagascan vanilla powder added which gives a lovely aftertaste. The Japanese Matcha green tea used to make this powder is 100% organic and authentically Japanese.

Cheerful Buddha

Cheerful Buddha has a number of health products within its range, and although the matcha latte powder is a new addition, we already think it's one of the best products that the brand makes. High quality green tea matcha powder is blended with coconut milk and mushroom to create a very impressive product. We're also impressed to see that Cheerful Buddha currently sits with an 'Excellent' rating on Trustpilot. Learn more and buy it here - amazon.co.uk
