POMEGRANATE MATCHA LATTE

Certified Organic Green Tea

Tin: 30g • 1lb (454g) bag • For use in Matcha Lattes

Matcha tea is kind of like a super-powered green tea—since you’re ingesting the whole leaf instead of just the brewed beverage, you get up to ten times the antioxidant effect and nutritional value of your standard green. Matcha’s rich in antioxidants, as well as chlorophyll and fiber, and has been found to have natural mood enhancing effects. All in all, matcha’s got no match when it comes to healthy teas.

Story

Japanese Tea:

In the 7th or 9th century, records indicate that Japan’s Emperor Kammu gave visiting monks an imperial gift of powdered green tea. Emperor Kammu created a government post, Supervisor of Tea and Tea Gardens, as Japan began to cultivate its own tea. That this post was part of the government’s medical bureau indicated that there was great respect for the health aspects of tea. From 800 to 1200, Japan relied on China for its tea supply. Because it arrived in minimal quantities, tea became a luxury for medicinal and spiritual purposes. Zen Buddhist Eisai Myoan returned from China with tea seeds and planted them at his temple. He soon realized that the quality was superior to any tea currently grown in Japan. These seeds formed the basis of Japan’s tea industry in the centuries to come. Further evidence of the correlation between good health and tea was found ina small book that Eisai wrote titles “Tea drinking is good for health”. He wrote that tea drinking confers many benefits including curing lack of appetite, diseases caused by poor quality drinking water, and vitamin B deficiency. Around this time, another tea enthusiast in Japan developed “The Ten Virtues of Tea”. Amongst the virtues listed are:

Drives away the devil Banishes drowsiness Wards off disease Strengthens friendship Keeps the viscera in harmony Disciplines body and mind Destroys the passions Gives a peaceful death

Thank you to TeaEqualsBliss for sending me some of this Matcha!

It’s really awesome! The pomegranate flavor is very authentic, like a juicy aril! YUM! The Matcha is buttery and smooth but it doesn’t have that grassy or vegetative tone – at least, not quite as strong as a typical Matcha. There are some vegetative notes in there, but, they aren’t as prominent as the fruit notes. The tart-yet-sweet flavor of the pomegranate seems to bring out the natural fruit tones in the matcha.

A very nice Matcha – I like it a lot!

Doesn’t seem like it could be matcha w/o the grassy or leafy green taste…

TeaEqualsBliss

But it’s SO GOOD!!!!! Regardless!

The Purrfect Cup

I bit the bullet and purchased some of this. Also when the husband says “eh try it” I’ve learned he’s serious. So yay! :)

Cofftea

You are so lucky! That’s not a common response from men of tea lovin’ women. And I don’t think I’ve ever heard that in response to matcha before. Share some w/ him and let us know how you both like it. :)

The Purrfect Cup

Well, he really doesn’t want me to drink coffee anymore. I’ve only had one cup since I gave it up for lent/lent ending. So he’s ok with my trying to drink something that’s a little better for me. I always try to get him to drink whatever it is I’ve made but no luck yet!
