Matcha is a Japanese powdered tea that has been around for the past 1000 years. It is prepared with 85C water and then whipped up with a bamboo whisk. It produces a slightly foamy, vibrant green drink with a rich vegetal, sweet taste. Because the leaves are not removed from the cup as in a traditional tea steeping method, but rather consumed, matcha tea contains the highest level of anti-oxidants, vitamins and caffeine. This matcha is is a lower grade than our organic premium quality and is perfect if you are baking matcha cookies, making frosting or candies, using in a marinade for fish...can also be used in a smoothies.
Water: 80C / 180F
