Free Shipping on Matcha Tea
Celebrated for centuries in the Japanese Tea Ceremony, Matcha is a Japanese tea made from powdered green tea. Rich in nutrients, antioxidants , fiber and chlorophyll, one cup of matcha is equal to 10 cups of brewed green tea in terms of nutritional value, because you are ingesting the entire leaf as opposed to just drinking just the brewed water. Matcha has a smooth, creamy, vegetal flavor and a beautiful chartreuse color. Its uses in baked goods, lattes and smoothies are gaining popularity – not only for its unique flavor, but for the naturally occurring vitamins and super high antioxidant benefits it has. Traditionally whisked with hot water, making the perfect cup of Matcha is a skill, indeed. But making a good cup of Matcha isn’t as difficult. First, heat some water just to boiling and soak the Matcha whisk in it. This allows the water to cool down to around 170 degrees, but also warms the whisk and makes it more supple in advance. Use 1/2 teaspoon of Matcha powder for 8 ounces of tea. Put the Matcha powder into the cup and then add the water. Whisk the mixture with a quick stroke and continue whisking until the Matcha has froth all over the surface. Don’t skimp on the whisking or the tea will be too gritty.
