Matcha powdered green tea is famed for the Tea Ceremony. Tea bushes of Matcha are carefully grown under the shade for about one month prior to harvesting in order to protect them from sunlight. This brings out an extraordinarily sweet taste with no bitterness. The manufactured leaves are ground like flour to produce a fine green powder. Matcha has a wonderful aroma, silky froth, and rich mellow taste.
"Our Matcha is a thin Matcha called Usucha and best for the everyday Matcha drinker. It is the perfect quality for enjoying the genuine taste of Matcha. Our Matcha is a light creamy liquid with a very sweet and mild flavor."
Country of Origin:
an ancient method of processing tea in which the raw
leaves are steamed and ground to a powder. This type of powdered tea
Zen Buddhist monks consumed Matcha while meditating to stay alert and calm. From the perspective of Zen Buddhism, the Japanese tea ceremony can be seen as a way to achieve enlightenment and to follow the path to spiritual and aesthetic perfection. The ceremony is intertwined with three philosophical concepts essential to Zen Buddhism: Yugen or innermost beauty; Sabi or the beauty of the ordinary; and Wabi, eternal loneliness.
Cultivation and preparation require special methods. Several weeks before the harvest the leaves are covered to hide them from direct sunlight. This makes them more tender and juicy, less bitter, and richer in amino acids. The young leaves are harvested while still tender and then dried, stems removed, and made into a powder. Production is very limited. This brings out a sweet taste or Umami with less bitterness. The manufactured leaves are milled like flour to produce a fine green powder. In Japan, Umami is considered to be the fifth human taste, rounding out sweet, sour, salt, and bitter.

We recommend that you freeze unopened packages of tea. After opening, store your tea in an airtight container in a cool dark cabinet, but not your refrigerator. Storing open packages in a refrigerator may cause moisture to condense inside the package, harming the tea. Once the package is opened, the tea has a shelf life of three months.
Brewing Matcha powdered tea is very different than steeping the leaves. You should have at least one special tool, a bamboo whisk called a chasen. Start with boiling water and two cups.
1) Pour boiling water i one of the cups.
2) Measure Matcha into the other cup. Use special Matcha tea spoon or half teaspoon.
3) Pour 3 oz water from the cup into the Matcha cup.
4) Whisk the Matcha with the water until foam is formed.
Matcha is a fine powder made from tea leaves. The powdered leaf doesn't dissolve in the water, but is suspended in the liquid. Consequently, it is important to enjoy this drink before the tea powder settles to the bottom of the cup.
Traditionally, this tea is taken without sugar, honey, or milk and consumed in silence and peace.
You can also add Matcha powder to your lattes, smoothies, ice cream, muffins, and any food you would like to augment with its unique and beneficial nutrients and beautiful green color.
