What's the deal with Matcha?

November 28, 2016

Matcha, the powdered green tea used in the Japanese tea ceremony has become a very hot drink on the East and West coasts, and we do sell matcha and equipment in our retail shop. Very high in anti-oxidants and fairly high in caffeine (like strong coffee), matcha has a very grassy taste, which is easier to take in a latte form. In our retail shop we sell both high grade ceremonial matcha (for the tea ceremony) and café grade matcha (for latte or smoothie drinks).

Here’s a simple recipe:

 

Matcha Latte:

  • Sift ½ tsp to 1 tsp Matcha into a cup.
  • Dissolve matcha by adding 2 oz hot water and stirring until matcha becomes a smooth paste.
  • Pour 6 oz steamed/heated milk into the already mixed matcha.
  • Scoop milk foam on top.
  • If you like, sprinkle matcha dust or cocoa powder on top. Also, you can add vanilla, almond or mint flavors.
  • Sweeten with honey or sugar.
  • You can also combine steps and mix/froth hot milk and tea all together.
