From California Tea House

We now proudly offer the finest matcha tea found anywhere. California Tea House’s Stone Ground Ceremonial Grade Matcha comes from the most tender tea leaves that are then stone ground in the ancient ways started over 800 years ago. The flavor has a vegetal background that is dominated by a sweet and incredibly smooth taste that you find on other matcha offerings. A rare find for matcha tea drinkers who are looking for something special.

Koicha style matcha preperation: (recommended)

Add 3 heaping chashaku scoops (or 1 level teaspoon) of match to the chawan (traditional matcha serving cup). Next add approximately 40ml of hot, yet not boiling water. Filtered water is best and if you have the ability, the best temperature is 170°F. Wisk the matcha using a bamboo chasen, then drink in bold, “inhalling sips” to fully enjoy the aroma and flavor.

Usucha style matcha preperation:

Follow the directions above, but only use 1.5 heaping chashaku scoopes (or 1/2 teaspoon). Usucha style will taste slightly more bitter than Koicha.

I snagged this when California Tea House was doing their Memorial Day promo where this was free with a $25 order. Holy crap, right?

The tin it comes in is vacuum sealed and once popped closes snugly. The matcha is bright emerald green and everything I’d hope for from a good matcha.

The smell was sweet and creamy. It evokes this sense like I’m smelling sunshine on dewy treetops in the early morning.

I sifted it, but it honestly fell through so easily I doubt this step was necessary.

It frothes up beautifully and the color is fantastic. The taste was full-bodied and rich. And if I didn’t know any better I’d swear I didn’t use water and had used cream or half anf half.

The taste is spinach and buttery, sweet, rich edamame-ness. The sweet notes are only enhanced as as it cools. There is also a depth of flavor that sometimes pops almost a rich nuttiness or cocoa notes.

There were also no clumps (or much at all) at the bottom of my cup when I finished. And the aftertaste lingers too, and I feel like it’s springtime in my mouth.

So, thank you so much for this promotion. I don’t know if I’d had bit the bullet otherwise and then I’d be missing something wonderful.

Wow. Probably the best Matcha I’ve had and I’ve had a few. My only complaint is it wasn’t easy to find. I’m happy I know where you are now!
