Organic Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder - Top Grade

$35.00
Quantity:


Product Description

This higher grade matcha green tea is made from tea leaves that have been shade grown for over three weeks to force the leaves to produce more chlorophyll .The leaves are then stone ground into a fine powder. The result is a vibrant emerald green colour with a smooth texture. The taste is sweet and rich with umami. Traditionally the tea is whisked with a bamboo whisk in hot water to produce a thick and frothy liquor. 

Region: Japan

Other Names: Maccha.

Steeping Guide:

Teaware: Bowl and bamboo whisk

Amount: 1g /1-1.5 teaspoons

Temperature: 80°c (176°F)

Directions: Add tea to a pre-warmed bowl and pour in half a cup of water (120ml/4 oz). Using the bamboo whisk move it in the bowl in a "M" or "w" shape, while avoiding the bottom of the bowl. Once a nice froth is formed on the surface your tea is ready. Feel free to use more tea with less water for a stronger cup or add more water to make it a bit smoother.

**Run bamboo whisks under hot water before using. This will prepare it for making tea and makes it last longer.
