Where to buy Matcha Green Tea Powder in Singapore?

I have hunted high and low for this elusive ingredient to make Green Tea ice cream. I have never bought any green tea before in my life. I did not realize there were so many types of Green tea in the market. The first packet that i bought is a Japanese style Green Tea leaf (SenCha)! I was so dismayed but cleverly taught that i can just use my food processor and grind the tea leaf into powder form. I had to learn it the hard way whereby the tea leaf just will not blend with the chilled whipping cream. On my next purchase, I taught I have bought the right green tea because the packaging shows a powdery green tea picture. However I still bought the wrong green tea. When i open the packet instead of powdery texture, i can see round small balls. Apparently its the "compact" version of the usual Green Tea. My hunt continues despite going all over JB to find at Cold storage/Jusco/City Square/Giant and Kota Raya. I also tried looking at Cold storage Sg but it was sold out at the time.


Where i bought my Matcha Green Tea Powder in Singapore?
I drop Meidi-Ya and Carrefour a mail. Meidi-Ya replied me the next day while there was no reply from Carrefour.
I find that Meidi-Ya has great service. When they reply my email they mention the product name in Japanese language and even inform me the price. I took a photo of the mail and show it to the Meidi-Ya customer service and a lady lead me straight to the product. I will definitely buy from them again!

Meidi-Ya: Matcha Green Tea Powder/Maruyu  Omacha Powder  30g  $12.00

Singapore: Carrefour definitely are not selling Matcha Green Tea Powder. Cold storage also sell Matcha Green Tea Powder

More Matcha Green Tea spotted (Latest Update)

$8.65 at Meidi Ya Liang Court

 This pic look familiar to you? thats coz I bought this for my Matcha Green Tea Ice cream~! The smell of the tea is nicely fragrant~! $12 at Meidi Ya - Liang Court



 $6.30 at Fair Price

All the price of the Match Green Tea varies. Some may not be 100% pure matcha green tea (according to my sis). According to the Matcha Green Tea ice cream youtube video that I saw, the lady advice that it is best to invest in a good matcha green tea powder. If you find matcha green tea anywhere in Singapore please leave comments. If you have tried any matcha green tea including the one I posted above pls comment on their quality too.




I am currently using Ten Ren Match Green Tea Powder. It is cost efficient and produce reasonable result. Sold at Purple Cane or selected major supermarket. 7.93oz for less than RM30 (Malaysia).

Hi if you use matcha powder often you might want to check out Phoon Huat & Co. They have a large range on baking/cooking supplies. I saw matcha powder at their Bencoolen Street outlet. However, it comes in a 1kg packet at about $75.

Yvonnelew said...

thanks for sharing where you found ur matcha green tea powder~!

Ling said...

Hi,

I've tried Phoon Huat's green tea powder and it does not yield satisfactory results. The powder often clumped up in the batter. :(

I shall give your findings a shot. :)

Yvonnelew said...

Hi Ling,
Not sure which cake you were making, but it maybe a good idea to take out some of the batter and mix in your green tea. Once its well combine, pour it thru a sieve to your main batter. It may help in your clumping prob.

There is also another brand that i am using Ten Ren green tea powder. Bought mine at NTUC ang mo kio after combing a few ntuc outlet in SG.

Hi,since you already bought various matcha powder from various supermarket in sg, do you mind sharing which one pure 100% matcha powder? coz i want to use it for macaroons which must be the right ingredients. Thank You.

Yvonnelew said...

I am not very sure about 100% pure matcha, but it would be best to invest and experiment in a more expensive type of matcha powder to get the best result.

Bert said...

Hi, can tell me which NTUC Fairprice you found the $6.30 green tea powder?

Hi. i know i'm about 3 yrs late!

anyway i found my matcha green tea powder at "Yamakawa Super" at Tampines 1. It cost about $12.50 for 48g of powder.

Well, i cannot really comment on the taste as it is the only matcha green tea i've tasted so far. But i have to say that it's not that bad. On a scale of 1 to 10, i give it a 7.5, 8?

P.S: really wish that more places do sell Matcha Green Tea though.

I tried a few brands but it does not give the nice green colour like Starbucks would.

Lupicia at Great World City has a very good matcha powder. $28 for 100g it is a bit pricey but very delicious. They also have a wide selection of green tea, flavored tea and herbal teas. It's worth a visit.
