GREEN TEA: Matcha 2022 harvest


Matcha - first class
Organic green tea, Japan

20 grams

Flavour: greens, marine, nut, melon ~ thick & textural
This first-class Spring matcha is a blend of May and June 2022 first flush leaves from Kirishima, Kagoshima prefecture, southern Japan. It has a thick, textural mouthfeel with notes of green beans, seaweed, nut and a hint of green melon in the finish.

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°C). Or, to create a matcha frappe: blend or shake ¼ - ½ teaspoon of matcha with 200mls  milk of your choice (we like almond). You can also add matcha into your smoothie for an extra nutrient boost.

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.
