What is Matcha?
Matcha is finely ground de-veined green tea leaves. Renowned for its use in the historic Japanese tea ceremony. It is a vivid green tea powder valued for its concentrated taste, mellow umami sweetness and the health benefits of a high antioxidant content, fiber and chlorophyll. One cup of matcha has the nutritional equivalent of ten cups of infused green tea.

Storage: Always store in a cool, dark place away from heat, humidity, direct sunlight, and odors. Matcha is extremely sensitive to light and heat. Once a package has been opened, keep in the airtight tin and store in the fridge.

Steeping matcha: Boil water and let it cool to about 175°F (80°C). It's important not to use boiling water as it can make the matcha taste bitter.
Pour about 2-4 ounces (60-120 ml) of this hot water into the bowl with the 1-2 teaspoons (or 2-4 grams) of matcha powder.
Using a bamboo whisk (chasen), rapidly whisk the matcha and water. Start whisking slowly to mix, then move faster, whisking back and forth in a "W" or "M" motion. The goal is to create a frothy layer on the top with tiny bubbles. This process usually takes about 15-30 seconds.
Once your matcha has a nice frothy layer, it's ready to drink. Enjoy it immediately for the best flavor.
