Matcha Premium


SKU: 90235 Categories: ,

Our Organic Matcha is made from the freshest, choicest hand-picked leaves, carefully stone-ground into an extremely fine powder.   Matcha is one of the healthiest Teas you can drink, because you’re drinking the entire leaf, not just the liquid made from it.

(See the Matcha Info page for more info on the Health Benefits of Matcha)

Matcha is also used extensively in cooking – Greet Tea Ice Cream, biscuits, smoothies, cakes and other “Green Tea” foods & drinks are made using “Ingredient Grade” Matcha. Very low-grade Matcha is also used in Body and Hair Care products – Green Tea Soaps and Shampoos lotions and other such products use Matcha as well.

There are 2 different styles of brewed Matcha – thin & thick – our Matcha can be used to make both.

Usucha, or thin tea, is prepared with one quarter to one half a teaspoon of Matcha and approxiMatély 2.5 to 3 oz of 140º to 160ºF water. It is then either whisked to produce froth or not, according to the drinker’s preference (or to the traditions of the particular school of tea).
Usucha creates a lighter and slightly more bitter tea.

Koicha, or thick tea, requires significantly more Matcha, as many as six teaspoons to 6oz (3/4 cup) of of 140º to 160ºF water.   Because the resulting mixture is significantly thicker, blending it requires a slower, stirring motion which does not produce foam.
Koicha produces a sweeter tea, and is served almost exclusively as part of Japanese tea ceremonies.
