Description: This gift set is a perfect introduction into the world of Matcha for beginners, or a nice way to complement someone's previous matcha experience.
To produce certain teas, like the finely ground green tea leaves used for Matcha, the plants are covered and grown in the shade a couple of weeks before harvest. This adds a brighter green tone to the teas, and helps preserve a sweeter, grassier flavour. It also increases the chlorophyll, adding more antioxidants. Although China began to experiment with ground tea leaves centuries ago, it is Japan that is home to Matcha as we know it today. True Matcha has been used in the elaborate and exquisite rituals of traditional Japanese Tea Ceremonies for centuries.
In recent years, Matcha has gained enormous popularity worldwide. Whether frothed with a whisk and hot water to be enjoyed from a tea bowl, or added to smoothies or tea lattés, pure matcha powder boasts great health benefits. Though Japan refined the processing of Matcha, tea producers outside of the country have begun creating Matcha from a variety of green and white teas, multiplying the variety of flavours and health benefits offered to the world.
Your gift set will arrive beautifully packed in a hand-stamped kraft box ready to be gifted.
