Brewing Matcha: One common misconception people have of Matcha is that is must be brewed according to the strict guidelines of the Chanoyu ceremony. In reality, Matcha can be brewed many different ways. We will detail a couple of our favorites here, as well as the ceremonial method. Please keep in mind that Matcha is best brewed using water that has boiled and then let sit for a few moments until it has cooled to roughly 180°F/82°C, (about 2-3 minutes). This allows for immediate consumption after brewing when the tea is at its peak flavor. As well, it is a good idea to sift Matcha through a tea strainer so that it will not form lumps when hot water is added.

Ceremonial Matcha: Please note that in order to brew Ceremonial Matcha 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).

Matcha Iced Latte: The drink that’s taking the west coast by storm! For this recipe you will need per serving: 1/2 tsp matcha, 2 oz hot water, 3 tsp sugar, 4 oz milk, 8 ice cubes, and 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)

1. Mix the matcha and hot water in a bowl. Stir with a whisk until completely dissolved.
2. Stir in the sugar.
3. Add milk and stir. If you like add vanilla at this step.
4. Add ice and put the mixture in a blender. Blend until smooth. If you don’t have a blender simply drink over the ice.
5. Enjoy

To make great Matcha, you need a Matcha Whisk. This one is our favorite: it is meticulously crafted with 80 bristles made of bamboo, which won’t warp or break easily. So you can whip up a great, smooth cup of Matcha every time. And this whisk is perfect for the Japanese Tea Ceremony as well – in case you get ambitious! Bamboo whisk is 10.8 cm long.

So goes from the famous tea-drinking poem, “Tea Stove” by the ancient Chinese writer Zhu Xi. Written during the Song Dynasty (960-1279), a period of intense creativity in Chinese history, the poem illustrates the notion that tea in all its forms was a gift from the gods. The Song dynasty also saw the much creative work in the realm of tea manufacture. At the time, the government began to tax credits to farmers who agreed to farm newly terraced hillsides. Farming became possible thanks to the developing of the irrigation pumps. Farmers discovered that the new fields were ideal for growing of many types of tea.

Among of the most important varieties was the development of jasmine scented tea, produced by layering freshly plucked leaves with fragrant jasmine blooms during processing. At the time, the jasmine scented tea became an instant success. We are pleased to offer to you the latest innovation in Jasmine tea, the Organic Jasmine Matcha. Stone ground using an exceptional Jasmine, it’s thick, creamy, rich and exceptional.
