Luxury grade Japanese green tea. Matcha is finely ground de-veined green tea leaves. Renowned for its use in the historic Japanese tea ceremony. It is a green tea powder valued for its concentrated taste, mellow umami sweetness and the health benefits of a high antioxidant content, fiber, and chlorophyll. One cup of matcha has the nutritional equivalent of ten cups of infused green tea.

Like it Hot? Add 1/2 to 1 tsp to base of small bowl cover powder with 2 oz of hot water (75C) and whisk to dissolve the powder. Add about 2/3 cup more hot water, and whisk until you get a nice froth on the surface of the water. Serve immediately. Best enjoyed with a sweet dessert.
Matcha Latte: Put about 1 tsp of matcha into a cup and fill with hot water up to 1/4 cup. Using a whisk, break up the clumps of tea powder until you get a smooth mix. Fill up the rest of the cup with steamed milk. Add sweeteners such as honey, beet rock sugar or agave nectar. Enjoy.
