Japanese Matcha tea powder in attractive silver tin.
A fine green powder from Tencha leaves used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony.
Instructions: Put 1 level teaspoon per 330 mls (approx 1/3 litre) in a bowl and add freshly boiled and cooled water - temperature 80-90°C. Whisk vigorously to a froth. Enjoy the wonderful aromas and surprisingly subtle, slightly sweet taste.
*Health Benefits: A much greater concentration of the antioxidant EGCG has been found available in the beverage - 137 times more than other green teas. Matcha is believed to reduce cholesterol levels and boost metabolism. The difference between Matcha and green tea infusions is that Matcha is the WHOLE PLANT therefore providing a much higher potency. More antioxidants are found in Matcha than blueberries, orange juice, pomegranates, spinach and gojiberries.
