Tea Story

This premium organic matcha tea is a great choice for people who are new to matcha. A more affordable choice than the highest ‘Ceremonial’ grade, this organic matcha has a very pleasurable flavour and mixes well with water. The tea imparts a smooth and mellow flavour with grassy and sweet undertones.

Grown in the revered Ise Bay area of the Mie Prefecture region of Japan, this organic matcha is created through the use of ancient wisdom and state-of-the-art technology. Expert knowledge of green tea has been passed down from generation to generation of Ise Bay tea farmers for over 800 years.

To make matcha tea, Camellia Sinensis tea bushes are meticulously cared for throughout the year. In the last 20 days before harvest, the bushes are shaded from direct sunlight. This process - referred to as ‘Shading’ - enhances the production of natural green pigment and healthy amino acids. After being hand harvested, the finest tea buds are dried, destemmed and de-veined. The tea leaves are the stone-ground to a fine powder. It can take up to one hour to grind 30 grams of matcha.

Matcha Health Benefits: Researchers have found that the concentration of antioxidants available in matcha tea is 10 times greater than the amount of EGCG available in other fine green teas. EGCG can help to prevent cellular and genetic damage by neutralizing unstable molecules - also known as ‘free radicals’. Matcha is also said to boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels when consumed regularly.

Brewing Guidance: See the matcha page for quick and easy brewing methods.

Matcha can be prepared to different liquid consistencies. For thin tea, use approximately 1.75g of matcha powder with 75ml hot water. For thick tea, use 3.75g of matcha powder with 40ml of hot water. To prepare your matcha tea, place a small amount of sieved matcha powder into your matcha bowl using a bamboo spatula. Add 70℃ hot water. Whisk the mixture using a bamboo whisk until the liquid has a uniform consistency. Finally, when enough foam has formed on the surface, beat at medium speed to produce finer bubbles.

Other Uses: Matcha is very popular for use in cooking - mainly to make cakes, sweets and ice creams. Our premium matcha is perfect for making delicious deserts and for infusing into spicy coconut curries.

Ingredients: Pure, Organic Japanese Green Tea.

Lovely green colour but rather bitter in taste, no sweetness at all. Does not froth up on whisking ....I have watched instructions on making the tea and followed that but can't get it to fully dissolve and froth. So very disappointed as quite expensive.Will try another matcha next time.
