Matcha is a fine powder made by grinding shade-grown Gyokuro tea leaves. To prepare, place one teaspoon of matcha in a bowl, add a few drops of hot (160-180F) water, and whisk into a paste. Then add more water and stir to produce a dark green liquor with bright foam. The resulting cup is sweet and vegetal, with hints of grass and a creamy finish. Our Masters-grade Matcha hails from Uji, Kyoto. It is a ceremonial-grade Spring-harvest Matcha. You're sure to love it.
