Finely ground antioxidant-rich green tea
Matcha is a finely powdered shade-grown green tea. There are various grades of Matcha, ranging from culinary grade all the way to intensely electric green hyper-premium ceremonial grade. Although Matcha is a green tea, it's prepared quite differently. When you drink Matcha, you ingest the ground leaves in their entirety, rather than soaking the leaves in water for a few minutes like traditional tea. You get more of everything that Green tea contains: antioxidants, polyphenols, and caffeine.

Traditional Matcha preparation requires a little up-front investment in Matcha equipment, which includes a ceramic Matcha bowl, bamboo whisk, and bamboo Matcha spoon, a skinny 6" - 8" bamboo strip shaped like the letter "L". To prepare, scoop however much Matcha fits onto the "L", which is about 1/2 teaspoon. Place that in the Matcha bowl, and cover with 8 ounces hot water (160-170 degrees). Use the bamboo whisk to whip the Matcha into a foamy green froth. That sounds a lot easier than it actually is. Like they say, it's all in the wrist. Watch a how-to video on YouTube and practice until you have it down. Stop if you develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
That's the traditional way to prepare it. Here is a much easier method.
Put 1/2 teaspoon Matcha and 8 ounces hot water into your blender and switch it on for a few seconds. You're done. That's it. You're welcome.
Don't have a blender? No problem. Put the Matcha and water into a glass jar, and shake vigorously until it's blended and foamy.

Hands the best matcha I've had & at such a reasonable price.
I’ve used ceremonial grade Matcha, a terrible Matcha latte, store brand Matcha...this is by far the best I’ve tried. I’ve abandoned all the other teas in my kitchen for this one...every morning.
That makes me so happy to hear; thanks for taking the time to leave a review, Dottie, we appreciate you!
CAN I BREW THE TEA LEAVES MORE THAN ONCE?
Yes! In fact, we encourage steeping your tea leaves more than once to explore how our teas change each time you brew them. However, we do recommend adding another minute or two to your total steep time with every new brew.
