Matcha comes from the same plant as Green Tea. It is shade grown - so it’s not allowed to process too soon in the sun. It is made only from the freshest First Flush Green Tea leaves. Once picked it is made into the ultrafine powder we are familiar with through the ultra-fine grinding process.
To make the characteristics easy to understand we’ve thrown them into a table. This clearly shows the original quality, color, flavor, and fragrance you can expect to see.
And for the Real Matcha Fans and the Science heads we have this handy table:
- Add a teaspoon or two of cold water and using a bamboo whisk, whisk rapidly until tea is dissolved and liquid is topped with light coloured foam. Back and forth patterns and concentrating the whisk on the centre of the bowl works best.
- To make Matcha Latte add steamed milk to taste and enjoy!
