New special matcha blend:
Enjoy the healthiest beverages on earth. White Diamond Matcha is a superior stone ground 1st flush high mountain grown blend of white and green tea: Both are rich in catechins and polyphenols, very desirable antioxidants. The secret to the power of Matcha is you get to consume the whole leaf rather than the oils off the outside of the leaf. Grown and prepared to strick Japanese methods.
Example of how to brew matcha:
Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a boil and let cool to roughly 180°F/82°C. (let steam subside) Place approximately1/2 of a teaspoon of Matcha in your cup. Infuse with up to 8oz/250ml of water, whisk briskly and enjoy.
CEREMONIAL MATCHA For when you can enjoy a purposely lengthy quiet time ( you will need a set of Japanese tea ceremony tools. Bowls, scoops, and a whisk).
1. Prepare tea bowls by warming them with boiled water. 2. Prepare your Matcha whisk by soaking the tip in the boiled water in one of the bowls for about 10 seconds. 3. Pour the water out and dry the bowl with a paper towel. 4. Using your teaspoon, add 2 scoops of Matcha to each bowl. 5. Pour 1/3 of a cup of your hot water into each bowl. 6. In a slow “m” motion, submerge any loose bits of Matcha that may be floating on the surface of the tea. 7. Whisk the tea more briskly in a back and forth motion until the surface of the Matcha becomes frothy. 8. Consume immediately. (In Japan, it is customary to drink the entire bowl in 3 quick slurps).
