This Matcha is recommended for delicate drinks and sweets that require a balance of aroma, flavor and color. A sweet drink with a honeyed body is obtained.
Matcha tea is a fine powder made from whole, ground tea leaves and is distinguished by its rich flavor and green color. The young shoots are kept in the shade for 3 to 4 weeks, after harvesting and then drying the stems, the stems are removed from the leaf to make Tencha tea. Then its leaves are ground to powder using a stone mill.
Traditionally, Matcha is prepared by dissolving the powder in hot water with a bamboo whisk.
A whisk is used to froth the mixture into a smooth, creamy texture.
Matcha tea plays an important role in the Japanese tea ceremony, "Sado" or "the way of tea", where the preparation of tea is used to emphasize beauty, simplicity and tranquility.
