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 Bronze Hachi 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 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.

I am so glad I decided to get this set after a lot of thinking, the delivery was speedy and I have already gotten so much use out of it. I really loved my in-store experiences with my friends, but due to the pandemic those experiences are no longer possible. Having this set at home has added a little ritual and stability to my day, and I have had so much fun trying out different flavour combinations. (The sieve and whisk can also multitask to make some excellent hot chocolate!) The instructions enclosed will help you make a perfect matcha base to create a variety of drinks. I personally like the slightly bitter taste of the Bronze Hachi matcha and I have it unsweetened as much as possible, but if that is not your cup of tea it is easy to add flavours with non-dairy milks or additives such as maple syrup or lavender to balance out the bitter. (One final thing I will mention is that the whisk takes 2 AA batteries!)
The kit is awesome. Has everything you need and very plainly explains the steps to make a cup of matcha. It has a very grassy taste and I do have to add a lot of honey, but it's a very effective product. I choose to drink it all at once because I'm not a fan of the taste. But those 30 seconds of not-too-bad-taste is totally worth the benefits. I will continue to drink matcha every day!
