Matcha varieties for which the best-before date will soon be reached.

Short BBD
Here you will find Matcha varieties from our regular range for which the best-before date (BBD) will soon be reached or has already passed.

An expiry date is not a criterion for a "bad" or "inedible" matcha.

Matcha is tea and, according to the law, teas need a best-before date on the packaging. However, different producers sometimes indicate very different best-before dates on their packages. Ippodo or Marukyu-Koymaen, for example, write a best before date of 180 days (=6 months) on their matcha. Matcha from the Hoshino garden or from the Hayashi or Morimoto families often have a best-before date of up to three years.

The best-before date for matcha is an indication that only serves a limited purpose. Generally speaking, it can be said that if the best-before date is not years in the past, the matcha is usually just as edible and of the same high quality as before the best-before date expired.
