This Japanese Matcha Tea (Kyoto region) is the perfect choice to consume in pastries, ice cream, iced teas, smoothies, matcha lattes and other drinks. It is a blend of Yabukita, Gokou and Samidori leaves, cultivated and blended by one of the top tea appraisers in the country.
Matcha is known to be an excellent source of antioxidants & amino acids, including the most beneficial anti-oxidant EGCg & L-Theanine that are associated with preventing diseases and skin aging. This delicious and healthy tea is also known to detoxify the body, boost the immune system, boost metabolism and promote weight loss, as well as lower cholesterol and blood sugar. The tea increases energy levels and promotes stress relief.
Producing this Matcha involves grounding the tea leaves between two stones and air drying which is why the colour of the powder is almost neon green. The process has not changed from centuries ago. Compared to the ceremonial matcha, this grade matcha has a bit more astringent taste and is great to mix with other ingredients when cooking. Although some people won't mind it as a regular tea drink, we recommend this matcha to be consumed when prepared in pastries, ice cream, smoothies, matcha lattes and other drinks.
