Matcha is a green tea that looks somewhat like hallucinogenic green cocoa, is drunk whole rather than steeped and has a strong oceanic vegetal taste with a very sweet aftertaste.
Due to the fact that it is drunk whole, this tea has atleast 3 times the antioxidant found in other green teas and 7 times that found in a glass of orange juice. Matcha is also said to boost metabolism and help reduce cholesterol levels when it is drunk regularly.
It is a very versatile drink and can be had hot or cold, sweetened or unsweetened. It goes particularly well with dairy and can even be used as an ingredient in a variety of foods ranging from cakes and ice creams to scones and cookies.
How to enjoy: Whisk 0.5 tsp per cup in 75-85° C water. Add milk and sugar to taste
Ingredients: 100% Green tea
