Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf powder and is the most prized amongst Japanese teas. It has been drunk as part of the tea ceremony for 900 years as well as by Buddhist monks during long days of meditation.
How to Use
Traditionally Matcha is drunk whisked in hot water as a smooth green tea.
Take ¼ teaspoon (1g) of Matcha powder and add hot water from a kettle which has not quite boiled to maximise the health benefits. Thoroughly whisk using a traditional wooden whisk or a hand held electric milk frother to avoid lumps of powder in the bottom of your cup.
Vanilla Match Latte: As well as being delicious and good for you, it is also very versatile. Matcha powder can be added to almost anything!
Mix 1g of Matcha powder with a little bit of cold water in a cup then add to hot organic vanilla soya milk while whisking thoroughly. Alternatively use organic vanilla rice or almond milk.
