Green Tea – Matcha
Light • Vibrant • Revitalizing
The Perfect Cup: Bring water to a *pre-boil; add 1tsp/cup or 1 tbsp/pot. Steep for 1-2 min and enjoy. If you like your tea stronger, steep with more tea and not more time. Tea will become bitter if over steeped.
*Pre-boil is just before a boil. If the water has come to a boil, let cool about 3 minutes to bring it down to the correct temperature before steeping.
Iced: Steep with double the amount of tea, 2tsp/cup or 2 Tbsp/pot. Cool, serve over ice and enjoy. You may also try a “cold brew” method by adding the tea to cold water and steeping it for 2-4 hours in the fridge. The tea will not go bitter!
Stone ground Japanese Green Tea. The rich green colour comes from the high chlorophyll content as the tea bushes are covered for weeks before harvest. Rich in anti-oxidants and fiber as the whole leaf is consumed. Can be whisked, added to smoothies, create lattes or used in baking for a beautiful green natural food colour.
