Silken, deep umami. Ceremonial grade offers you a way to enjoy a tea ceremony, Chanoyu, as a host preparing and sharing a bowl of fine green tea with a guest, entertaining friends, or indulging yourself in times of relaxation. 

Lot Notes. Grade is ceremonial. Ceremonial offers caffeine to stimulate the body, with amino acids to relax the mind. Our Matcha is harvested at the peak of potency.  Appearance is a vibrant green, fine powder. 

Tea Facts. Tencha leaves, early spring, are shaded for 21 days, harvested, then stone-ground to powder. Three contributing farms in Shizouka, three cultivars blended. Skillful farming & processing bring high levels of polyphenols, antioxidants, and L-Theanine.

Taste Profile. Offers a smooth, savory flavor and a high level of aroma. Taste is silky, hints of vanilla, and lightly nutty. Offers an energetic boost. 

Brewing Suggestions. Use freshly boiled spring water. For a usucha or "light" cup, use two grams (one level teaspoon), sift into chawan or bowl, add 3.0 oz. water at 170F, whisk into a smooth, rich foam. For koicha or "thick tea", use 4 grams, with 1.5-2.0 ounces water at 170F., and stir into paste.
