Matcha Green Tea

Japanese Matcha Green Tea is a unique and highly revered form of tea that has been at the heart of Japanese tea ceremonies for centuries. Our selection of pure and flavored matcha showcases the vibrant green color, smooth texture, and rich umami flavor that set this tea apart from others.

Brewing Instructions:

Sift 1-2 teaspoons of matcha into a bowl. Add 2-3 oz of hot water (around 175°F/80°C). Whisk vigorously in a zigzag motion until a frothy layer forms on the surface. Enjoy your matcha straight or add more water or milk to taste.

History:

Matcha Green Tea dates back to the 12th century when it was brought over from China by the Zen monk Eisai. Originally reserved for the nobility and samurai, it eventually became an integral part of Japanese culture and the focal point of the traditional tea ceremony, known as "Chanoyu."

Possible Health Benefits:

Matcha Green Tea is renowned for its potential health benefits, as it contains higher concentrations of antioxidants, specifically catechins, compared to other green teas. It may help support a healthy metabolism, provide natural energy, and promote overall well-being.Show Sources

Thumbnail of Matcha Izu | Organic
Izu Matcha is a fabulous example of a high quality Japanese Matcha grown in the Izu peninsula, not far from Tokyo. The tea has a pale emerald green color and when consumed on its own, frothed up with a whisk, has an almost jammy-smoothness belied by a somewhat sweetly astringent cup. The best thing to do with your matcha is experiment.

Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder.

Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1/2 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir.

Thumbnail of Matcha Whisk
This matcha Whisk (Japanese: "chasen" ) is handmade from sustain-ably harvested bamboo and has 120 spines. The bamboo matcha whisk is a necessary tool for achieving smooth frothed matcha.

It is recommended that the whisk is prepared for use by first placing the whisk, spine side down, in a little less than 2" deep of hot water for about an hour. This allows the whisk to uncurl and be more effective. (See middle image for full unfurling.)

If you drink matcha everyday and use your whisk to prepare the matcha, you will probably need to replace the whisk 2-3 times a year. It is time to replace the whisk when breaks occur anywhere on the whisk.
