From Arbor Teas

This organic matcha is a ceremonial grade matcha (Usu-cha). Containing only the highest color quality (brilliant green) and a smooth, slightly bitter taste, this excellent quality organic green tea is perfect for daily consumption or for that special treat.

Matcha is a variety of Japanese green tea that is stone ground at the end of the manufacturing process, resulting in an ultra-fine tea powder that is typically whisked in hot water until a frothy consistency is reached, as in the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. The resulting brew has much more body and flavor than tea brewed in a conventional fashion, with a thick, rich green taste and slight bitterness. Drinking matcha has been found to be even healthier than normal green tea, because the entire tea leaf – not just the infusion as with normal teas. Unlike most matcha teas available in the U.S., our organic Matcha Green Tea is grown on farms and processed in factories in Japan. This matcha is an ingredient grade matcha which is best when used in recipes for matcha lattes, smoothies, shakes, ice cream, etc.

To brew and drink directly, measure approximately one half (1/2) teaspoon of matcha and place it in a pre-warmed bowl with approximately 2.5 oz. of water at 175°. This is roughly one almond-sized portion when using a traditional bamboo matcha scoop (or “chashaku”). Whisk vigorously in a back-and-forth motion using a traditional bamboo matcha whisk (or “chasen”) until frothy, making sure not to press the whisk down against the bottom of the bowl. After whisking, the matcha is ready to drink directly from the bowl.

Just finishing up a cup of this now…not as good as the last time I tried it but I think my water was too hot…I’ll let the rating stick. See previous notes…

What a wonderful Matcha. So bright and vibrant! The color is such a bright, vivid green! And it froths up well and stays frothed up long after I’m finished whisking.

This is a ceremonial grade Matcha so it is thick, rich and creamy. Very smooth – VERY smooth – no grit at all, not even when I reach the bottom of the chawan. it is buttery and vegetal and sweet. Very energizing too.

So yesterday I spent a great day with friends shopping, going to the tea store and visiting a tea room for lunch. At the tea shop they just got in some matcha and I could buy just an ounce. I decided I would go for it and give it a try. (I have always wanted to try it but just nervous about it.) Well I tried it today and was pleased with my first attempt. It had a vegetative taste but also a touch of sweetness to it. I am not sure how to describe it. However, since I had the bowl of matcha I feel incredibly thirsty??!!! Not sure about that. I think I would enjoy some of the flavored matcha.
I am not going to rate it because I am not sure which company’s matcha I had. But I will definitely have some again!
