Tea Type or Tisane | Flavors: Green | fresh greens, savory, umami
Tea Tips: Drink in the morning to energize and focus your day. Shade-grown matcha has more antioxidants than any other green tea.
Ingredients: Shade-grown matcha green tea from Uji, Japan
How to Steep: Add 1 tsp of matcha to a bowl. Pour 1 Tbsp of 185°F water on the side of the bowl opposite the matcha. Using a bamboo whisk, mix the water and matcha into a thick paste. Pour 2–3 oz of 185°F water into the bowl but away from the matcha. With the whisk, vigorously mix the water and matcha until a thick froth forms.
Fun Fact: Shading the tea plants reduces the bitter catechins while increasing chlorophyll and amino acids. These components increase the umami and savory flavors.
