Izu Matcha

Regular price $32.00

Style: Green

Origin: Japan

Description: Izu Matcha is made with a partially shade-grown Japanese green tea, which has been ground into a powder. This tea makes a tasty cup with a lingering astringency, preceded by the flavour of a fresh summer grass. This matcha is of culinary quality (a powder with a larger granule size and a later harvest time than a premium matcha), making it a lower price-point and excellent for Matcha Lattés (hot or iced), smoothies, desserts and ice creams, and baking/cooking pursuits.

Tasting Notes: Sweet and fresh on the nose with a grassy palate and a nice, kelpy finish.

Brewing Instructions:

Japanese Usucha Method

1 teaspoon Matcha Powder for 70ml (approximately 1/4 cup) water. 75ºC - 80ºC water. Place matcha powder into a teabowl. Add a small amount of water, and create a paste using a bamboo matcha whisk in a zig-zag motion. Add the rest of the water, and whisk thoroughly until a nice froth is achieved. Serve immediately.

Western Method

1/2 - 1 teaspoon matcha powder per cup of water. Follow Usucha method preparation steps. Add more water to taste and/or to change the thickness of the drink as desired. To make a Matcha Latté, use 1/2 water + 1/2 warm milk or milk alternative for the liquid, and whisk as usual - for an iced Matcha Latté, pour frothed mixture over ice cubes.

Organic

Tea cultivation and processing originated in China about 5,000 years ago, and while they carry on a rich and ancient tradition of producing high-quality teas of all styles, their green varieties are truly beyond comparison. The flavour profiles, aromas, and processing techniques from each tea-growing region vary tremendously. Some become silky and smooth, while some become powerful and astringent. Whether for casual daily drinking, or for special moments of ceremony and contemplation, Chinese green teas truly nurture the soul.
The organic teas we import are artisanally farmed and crafted. They may change with each harvest season. The same tea harvested at a different time of year and processed by a different tea maker will vary slightly in flavour and finish.
