Izu Matcha 4oz
There is perhaps no tea on the market today that is as celebrated or as famous as Japanese Matcha. This powdered green tea has been used in the beautifully complex Japanese tea ceremony for centuries. It was believed by the ancient Japanese that tea was a gift of the heavens and, as such, held great restorative and spiritual power here on earth. In fact, an ancient Japanese poet named Sen no Rikyo, considered to be the most important influence on the development of the tea ceremony, or Chanoyu, penned this line during the 1500's, "Though many people drink tea, if you do not know the Way of Tea (Chanoyu), tea will drink you up." The development of the Chanoyu began as a way for human beings to appreciate and show reverence to this power.

This product is a top-quality Japanese Matcha grown in the Izu peninsula, not far from Tokyo. The tea has a bright, emerald green color and when consumed on its own, frothed up with a whisk, has an almost jammy-smoothness belied by a somewhat sweetly astringent cup. The best thing to do with your matcha is experiment to find the best combination of hot (not boiling) water and tea that suits you best. Start with 1/2 tsp of Matcha to 1/2 cup of water and move up or down in strength from there.

  • Imported from Izu.
  • Matcha is a fresh product. Please consume within 30 days.
