COCOA 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

Yum! This reminds me of ovaltine. But, I like ovaltine so I am not complaining. It is rich and chocolatey. I made a latte using a ratio of 1 part hot water to 1 part milk. I also sprinkled a tinsie-tiny sprinkling of sugar to it, because it is a cacao powder and it comes off as too bitter a chocolate taste for my palate without the sugar. With that tiny sprinkle of sugar, though, it gave it a very rich chocolate flavor, sweet, but not too sweet, and just enough bitter tones to keep it exciting.

A chawan full of YUM!

Dry smells like cocoa powder, sure!
once mixed – it smells like hot chocolate and croissant-like bready or caky or something.
It looks like coffee with cream in it.

The taste is pretty darned tasty! It’s creamy and fairly cocoa-E and almost coffee bean like. The aftertaste is when the ‘matcha taste’ comes in to play.

This is very different yet good! Nice one!

Also got some of this. I have a feeling the flavored matcha will be something I prefer over straight up matcha…I hope!

There are some awesome flavored matcha’s out there! :) Have you looked into Domo, too?

The Purrfect Cup

I did, but that seemed a bit pricey as compared to this one. If I really like it I’ll consider an upgrade.

Pure Matcha is great but unflavored and Red Leaf has some awesome new ones, too!

Good to know. I’ve been signing up for newsletters all over the place this last week.
