Fresh, green tea leaves, ground to an ultra-fine powder with creamy body, vegetal flavor, and a hint of the sea. Green tea from Japan, Usucha Matcha is an elegant powdered tea made from the finest Japanese tencha and is commonly used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony. Experience the Way of Tea or "Cha No Yu" as you whip up a frothy emerald green Matcha infusion. Usucha Matcha contains highly concentrated green tea vitamins, minerals, chlorophyll and the unique L-theanine amino acids found almost exclusively in green tea. Thick and concentrated, this precious green tea inspires focus and calm.

Add 1 teaspoon of matcha to your matcha bowl (or any 4-10oz bowl). If the matcha has any lumps add a small amount of cold water and use your whisk to dissolve into a smooth paste. Add 2.5-3oz of 175° water to the bowl. Use a bamboo whisk to froth the matcha until all of the large bubbles are gone — approximately 15-30 seconds. When ready to drink, the liquid should look thick and frothy with tiny bubbles.
