GREEN TEA: Matcha 2021 harvest


Matcha - first class
Organic green tea, Japan

20 grams

Raw greens, cut grass, nut ~ smooth & creamy
This 2021 first class Spring matcha was harvested and processed in May 2021, using leaves from two family tea farms in Kagoshima, southern Japan.

It has a textural and creamy mouthfeel with notes of green vegetables, cut grass and a hint of nut.

To create matcha, the tea plants are shaded before harvest. This process intensifies the chlorophyll content, its ‘umami’ flavour, and the helpful amino acid L-theanine. After plucking, the leaves are steamed, their veins and stems removed, then dried before being ground by a stone mill into a fine powder.

Certified organic by Kagoshima Organic Agriculture Association (KOAA).

Preparation: Whisk 1/4 - 1/2 tsp in 100mls hot water (60 - 80). Or, to create a matcha frappe: blend or shake ¼ - ½ teaspoon of matcha with 200mls  milk of your choice (we like almond).

To make it easy for you to prepare matcha, take a look at our Matcha Set, which includes a bowl, whisk and scoop along with a pouch of matcha.
