Matcha is green tea that has been shade-grown, de-veined, de-stemmed and ground into a very fine powder. Matcha isn't steeped, it's "eaten." One serving is equivalent to 10 servings of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content. Matcha's unique combination of amino acids and caffeine creates a lasting feeling of focused vitality. Perfect for work, play, exercise or meditation.
Preparation of Traditional Matcha: Sift 1/2-1 teaspoon of Aiya Matcha into a small bowl. Add 2-4 ounces of 70-80 degree Celsius water (boiling water will compromise taste and nutritional content). Whisk vigorously using a traditional bamboo whisk or a frother for 15 seconds or until creamy. Enjoy your perfect cup of matcha!
Preparation of 8 ounce Matcha Latte: Whisk 1 teaspoon of sifted matcha with 1 ounce of 80 degree Celsius water. Add steamed milk and enjoy.
Storage: Keep away from heat, light, air, moisture and strong odours. Once opened, use as soon as possible.
