FYI: • When consuming matcha you actually consume all the tea leaves. Scientific testing in Japan has indicated that on account of this fact the antioxidant benefit of matcha can be up to 5-9 greater then with normal green tea consumed in the conventional manner. • Matchas made from high altitude teas such as Kenya Green or Kenya White tea, have some of the highest antioxidant levels recorded for tea - considerably more than Japan Green tea.

Brewing Matcha: Matcha can be brewed many different ways. In order to brew Ceremonial Matcha (guidelines of the Cha no yu ceremony) you will need a set of Japanese tea ceremony tools: Bowls, scoops, and a whisk.
Prepare tea bowls by warming them with boiled water. Prepare your Matcha whisk by soaking the tip in the boiled water in one of the bowls for about 10 seconds. Pour the water out and dry the bowl with a paper towel. Using your teaspoon, add 2 scoops of Matcha to each bowl. Pour 1/3 of a cup of your hot water into each bowl. In a slow "m" motion, submerge any loose bits of Matcha that may be floating on the surface of the tea. Whisk the tea more briskly in a back and forth motion until the surface of the Matcha becomes frothy. Consume immediately. * In Japan, it is customary to drink the entire bowl in 3 quick slurps.
