The Green Tea Power Powder

 

So, what’s so great about matcha? We’d say it comes down to three things: the exquisite taste of the best varieties, the power generated by grinding the green leaves into a powder, and the artistry of the Japanese tea ceremony.

Think of matcha as a green tea espresso: the powdered form promotes quick caffeine absorption, and the leaf itself has a high antioxidant content. By consuming the leaf as a powder rather than infusing and removing, you get all the goodness contained in the leaf.

The name says it all: ‘ma’ translates as ‘powder’, ‘cha’ as tea. Our superbly high grade of matcha has been sourced from the town of Uji in Japan, best known for being home to Japan’s oldest temple, and one of the very first towns to take on the trend of green tea. In fact, ever since the first tea seeds were planted in the grounds of a Kyoto temple in 1191AD, Japanese green tea has been associated with Zen Buddhism. The tea ceremony reflects the meditative practice of Zen, celebrating the art of simplicity.

Make mine a matcha- How to brew:

Add two bamboo scoops (1 flat teaspoon) of matcha to your tea bowl and mix with a couple of drops of water to make a smooth paste.

Top up the tea bowl to ¾ full water at 80°C (cool for five minutes after boiling). Alternatively, use warmed soya milk to create a sweet and creamy matcha latte.

Mix with a bamboo or electric whisk until a creamy froth forms on the surface.Do as the Japanese do, and use two hands to hold your tea. Sip without slurping.

A note from Whittard

“I’m a huge oolong fan – the sheer diversity of different flavours is pretty mind-boggling. My favourites are the creamy, almost buttery high grown oolongs grown in Taiwan.”
