I have put together a list of recommended tea things in several categories for you to shop my favorites. This list is based 100% on my honest opinion, personal preference and recommendations. I will be updating/adding items periodically so make sure you come back for new ideas!
This is not an actual shop, so if you click through the images you’ll be directed to the seller.

1- MMU03 is currently my favorite Matcha! It’s from a new brand and their quality is amazing. Best to drink on its own.
2- I love my Matcha Lattes and this is what I mostly use to make them. Check out their Instagram account for discount codes.
3- This is also a great Matcha and I especially like the individually wrapped sachets when I travel or when I’m on-the-go.
4- One of my all time favorites! This is probably one of my favorite Japanese tea brands and their Matcha is amazing. Recently available from Amazon.
5- Another great daily Matcha from another good brand. They have different grades and I also love their Misaki premium blend.
6- I love to cook with Matcha but it can be a little expensive. This is an excellent quality kitchen grade Matcha from my go-to Japanese online store.
1- Chawans (Matcha bowls) are perfect for drinking straight Matcha because it’s easier to whisk than in a regular cup/mug and create froth.
2- This is a great starter set that includes the basic tools to make perfect Matcha. Bowl, scoop, strainer, whisk and holder.
3- One of my favorite Matcha brands has this perfect starter set for newbies or as a gift because it includes Matcha + basic tools.
4- There’s a before and after using a strainer to prepare Matcha. No more lumps, ever!
5- I had another hand frother before buying this exact one. Life changer, makes perfect froth.
6- Great option for those who make tea/matcha on-the-go, at the office, after workouts, etc. Just shake it!
TEAS THAT MAKE GREAT LATTES
(I only recommend loose leaf teas because they are almost always better quality teas than tea bagged teas. That said, if you are new to loose leaf teas the only thing you need is a good strainer and you’re good to go!)
