Loose Tea: Bring 8 oz. of water to a boil. Scoop 1 teaspoon (2.5g) of Ceremonial Matcha into a bowl. Pour hot water over powder and blend until frothy. Add desired sweetener and enjoy hot, iced or in smoothies.
The matcha tea ceremony is an ancient Japanese tradition representing peace, harmony and happiness. The quiet ritual requires a defined series of precise hand movements and graceful presentation. Matcha is prepared at a table with a bamboo whisk and ceramic bowl and is then passed around the table for a sip from each guest. It concludes with another bow to signify respect to each other.
A way of tea unique to Japan, Matcha is a shade-grown green tea stone-ground into a fine powder. An antioxidant powerhouse, Matcha drinkers benefit from ingesting the whole leaf rather than the brewed leaves.
