Matcha is a green or white tea that has been ground to a powder (a pulverized tea) since the 15th century. Matcha teas have high fiber content, is high in protein and antioxidants. They make excellent lattes, a terrific addition to smoothies, can be used in desserts and chocolate making. All varieties of Matcha we sell are processed from raw tea converted into Matcha at a factory in Canada on traditional authentic Japanese equipment. Kenya Matcha teas are grown on tea estates that have the following certifications: Fair Trade, Rain Forest Alliance, UTZ, ISO and HACCP. No pesticides or herbicides used and there is zero fear of any radioactive contamination.
Consuming: One cup of Matcha is equivalent to consuming 3 cups of Green Tea. Matcha teas have lots of caffeine and minerals that may keep you awake. The best time for Matcha is morning and early afternoon. Do not overdose.
Shelf life: 8 years, after openning - 3 months.
Facts: • 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.

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.
