Matcha Deep Green
Powdered green tea from Japan used in tea ceremonies. This matcha comes from the mythical region of Uji, near Kyoto (the former capital of Japan), and more precisely from Ujitawara, hometown of Nagatani Soen, inventor of the sencha tea style.
Matcha is made by whisking the tea in a bowl of hot water and drinking it unaltered. Matcha is high in caffeine, nutrients and anti-oxidants.
This Matcha is a superb bright green powder with smooth creamy texture and very low astringency. The flavour has notes of almonds and and cocoa beans backed by accents of green vegetables and chlorophyll.
