Tea Story

This Japanese matcha powder is wonderful for use in cooking and baking. Made from premium shade grown tea leaves, the tea is high in healthy amino acids and adds a bright green colour to cakes, ice creams, breads and other foods. 

The tea is grown in the revered Ise Bay area of the Mie Prefecture region of Japan. Farmers in this area have been growing premium green teas for over 800 years and have passed down ancient tea knowledge from generation to generation of tea experts. Today, our colleagues in this area make use of state-of-the-art technology to create sublime green teas.

This matcha tea is a great choice for creative home cooks, professional chefs and bakers, as well as ice cream makers.

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. 

Aroma: The tea imparts a fresh and vegetal aroma.

Colour: The powder has a bright green colour.

Ingredients: Pure, Shade Grown Japanese Green Tea.

Tea region: Ise Bay, Mie Prefecture, Japan
