WHAT IS MATCHA?
Before tea was considered a casual beverage, it was considered a medicine.
Of all the teas on earth, matcha is the ultimate medicine.
HOW TO SELECT & PREPARE MATCHA
We choose matcha that is organically grown in Uji, Kyoto, Japan. Our matcha goes through extensive testing for quality, to make sure you can enjoy only top quality tea every day.
Quality matcha should be a beautiful vibrant green, matcha oxidizes when exposed to air, turning an unpleasant brown shade, so purchasing matcha direct from the farm that packages it is best.
SMOOTH SWEET FLAVOR
Matcha should taste grassy and sweet, with a pleasant, non-astringent bitterness that is smooth and vegetal.
JAPANESE MATCHA VS. CHINESE MATCHA
Generally speaking, “matcha” is not shade-grown in China, which leads to a dull and bitter “matcha” product. In Japan, matcha is shade-grown, which produces the most vibrant, best-tasting matcha.
WHY WE CHOOSE ORGANIC MATCHA
HOW TO PREPARE IT
Matcha can be used in all kinds of applications, but when it comes to drinking, there are two primary ways.
Ceremonial: 1 tsp ceremonial grade matcha + 8 oz hot (not boiling, water)
Latte: 1 tsp latte grade matcha + 2 oz hot (not boiling, water) + 6 oz. steamed milk of choice + 1-2 tsp sweetener of choice.
