Matcha is shade-grown for a few weeks before it is harvested. This process increases the chlorophyll levels and gives Matcha its vibrant green color. Matcha is a very fine powder and should be handled carefully. A ceremonial Japanese grade tea powder ground from fine green tea leaves. Excellent for shakes, lattes, and smoothies.
A cup of matcha contains approximately 2-3 times more caffeine than a cup of caffeinated steeped tea. Which is about the same amount of caffeine you'd get in a regular cup of coffee. But, the caffeine-buzz effect is different. Matcha creates a wonderful alertness and calm from the L-theanine that promotes relaxation without drowsiness, making it synergistic with caffeine.
Use 1/4 teaspoon per 4 oz.'s of hot water at 180ºF. Whisk the Matcha powder with a bamboo whisk in a bowl until the Matcha powder is completely dissolved. Whisk vigorously and when whisked properly it should look frothy and bright green.
Matcha is a nourishing beverage and once prepared it should be consumed in its entirety. We recommend storing Matcha in the refrigerator.
