Matcha - premium blend
Organic green tea, Japan

20 grams

Fresh spinach, raw green beans, hint of lime
This premium grade matcha is a blend of 2019 first harvest and 2018 second harvest leaves from three organic farms: Tofuku, Nishi and Henta, all located in north Kagoshima on the slopes of the Kirishima volcanic mountain range.

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 almond milk.
