Matcha Keiki - Limited Edition

Regular price $11.00

Style: Green

Origin: Kagoshima, Japan

Description: Made from the premium, shade-grown Tencha tea leaves, this second harvest matcha is carefully and freshly ground through a traditional stone mill. The depth of flavour and sweet vegetal qualities make this matcha excellent for drinking (prepared traditionally in a tea bowl, or mixed in smoothies, lattés, etc) and for culinary explorations.

Tasting Notes: The aroma of the prepared matcha is a fresh, sweetly toasted rice, which develops a pleasant kelp finish. The creamy texture and savoury-sweet nutty flavour carries the palate through a complex astringent depth on the sides of the tongue. Develops a clear, mineral linger with vegetal qualities.

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.
