We are happy to offer our customers with one of the best Ceremonial Grade matcha with Organic certification available in the market. It is hard to come across a matcha that has been made with the rigors required of ceremonial grade and be certified Organic at the same time. Aiya, our supplier from Aichi Prefecture, has been manufacturing matcha since 1888.
This grade has a wonderful and satisfying taste, with a creamy, nutty and vegetal character mixed in without being bitter.
Net Quantity: 30 gm (1.05 oz). Around 15 servings.
PREPARATIONBefore adding hot water to Matcha, it is recommended that Matcha is sifted using a tea strainer or a sifter to avoid clumps of Matcha from forming in the tea.
Place about two bamboo tea scoops (1/2 to 1 tsp.) of Matcha powder in the bowl.
Add 2 to 3 oz. of pre-boiling water to the bowl (~180F / ~80C). Boiling water may not be the most suitable for Matcha because it does not bring out the best flavor and the natural mild sweetness of the tea.
Using the bamboo whisk: whisk briskly with the motion of making the letter "M" or "W." Simply an up and down motion will do as well. The whisking brings oxygen into the tea to create a nice frothy layer on the surface with many air bubbles. (Optional) To remove the air bubbles, simply lift the whisk slightly and lightly stroke the surface of the froth a few times until air bubbles have completely disappeared. Using soft water is best for Matcha green tea and any other Japanese green teas.
Depending on personal preference, add more water to adjust for desired taste.
Remember to add more water only AFTER whisking.
