Ceremonial Grade Matcha
AVAILABLE IN 30G AND 80G
Full-bodied, creamy flavor with a slight hint of sweetness. For more than 800 years, only the highest grades of matcha have been considered worthy of the time-honored tea ceremony ritual. Our Ceremonial Grade matcha was carefully selected for its bold umami flavor and stunning green color.
This is a real luxury for those who appreciate a superior grade of matcha. It has a full-bodied, creamy flavor with a slight hint of sweetness.
Only the highest grades of matcha green tea, like this one, are used in the tea ceremony (chanoyu). This is exclusively grown in the misty hills of Uji inside the ancient city of Kyoto, Japan. Its unique climate has produced the finest matcha teas in the world, cherished by Samurai before each battle and revered by Zen Monks for its Zen-like alertness while meditating.
Preparing the perfect bowl of matcha
Making matcha can be fun and surprisingly easy! You can do a more traditional preparation, or a convenient one if you're busy. Here's quick steps anyone can use:
Heat water in a kettle until steam first appears; this will be well below boiling, about 180°F. Turn off heat.
Use a tea scoop or 1tsp to measure matcha and sift into a bowl to prevent clumps.
Add 2-4oz of water for desired consistency.
Sip and enjoy.
