Our matcha teas will not stain your teeth in any way. The anthocyanins contained in the blue matcha are water-soluble vacuolar pigments that may appear blue or pink depending on the pH. The blue matcha, red matcha and pink matcha will color food blue, red or pink but not your teeth or tongue.

To dye foods, can you add the matcha straight to the food or do you have to dissolve in liquid first?

You can add our blue matcha directly into foods, especially with rather moist foods (smoothie bowls etc). We’d recommend dissolving it in warm water first to get all the natural food dye out of the powder though. The powder doesn’t require much liquid to release the blue color. The process is similar to making a paste out of green tea matcha to use as natural green food dye but in this case it’ll be blue instead of green.

We collect the blue tea flowers by hand, dry them and use the same advanced processing technique as with green tea matcha though which allows us to produce the highest quality blue matcha.

Will the blue matcha tea stain clothing and if so, is it washable?
