Matcha, a stone ground green tea powder first created 800 years ago in China, has a spiritual significance to many tea drinkers. Traditionally whisked to a frothy, creamy fusion during the Japanese tea ceremony, this unique, shade grown tea has absolutely no bitterness or astringency at all. It is subtly sweet, with a soft creamy mouth feel and a savory finish. The beauty of Matcha is that you can make it instantly—no tea bags or steep times. Simply add a small amount of the powder to hot or cold water. Whether you make your matcha on-the-go, or have time to sit, relax, and see the beauty in the mundane, it can still be a Zen experience. Whisked, stirred, or shaken, each sip will bring you bliss.
Made from the highest quality organic Gyokuro green tea, this Matcha is great for the traditional tea ceremony but even better for culinary use.

- Add to hot water and whisk or stir until frothy
