A medium grade of organic Japanese matcha. Made from the Kurasawa cultivar, this matcha creates lively green color with a roasty and slight umami cream flavor. Great for an everyday cup at an affordable price.
Steeping Suggestion: Use 1 tsp/ 8oz cup. Steep 2-3 minutes in 175 °F water
For iced tea, use double amount of tea and steep normally. Pour over ice to drink immediately or add an equal amount of room temperature water and store in refrigerator. To sweeten, add sugar, honey, or stir in a sugar stick while the tea is still hot.
Prepping Suggestions: For a straight matcha drink, use 1/2 teaspoon of matcha powder per 8 ounces of water. Begin making the drink by blending a small amount of water with the matcha powder. Stir or whip with a match whisk until completely blended. Top off with hot or cold water.
For a matcha latte, use 1/2 more matcha powder then described as above and blend together with a small amount of water. Pour over a cup of hot or cold milk and sweeten with honey or sugar to taste.
