seeking Japanese matcha

I was thrilled to find Cindy's Planet, the cafe in Chinatown that offers an array of hard-to-find Asian drinks, including green tea made with matcha (the powdered tea used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony).

Where can I buy matcha in larger quantities? The local Japanese markets (like Yoshinoya in Central Square Cambridge) have precious tiny tins of it for a lot of money, but is there a cheaper way?

And, does anyone know of other cafes that serve matcha?
