Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder — Non-GMO, Kosher, Authentic Japanese Origin - Exclusive Gourmet Grade, Vegan, Sirtfood - by Food to Live
To produce this special grade of tea, the plants are shaded for the last few months of their growth. Then, the leaves are dried and powdered, but their stems and vines are removed to ensure the purity of organic matcha powder. When you consume it, either through the Japanese tea ceremony or in a recipe, you actually ingest tea leaves. This means that you get all the nutrients they contain, but also that you get a lot more caffeine than you would from brewed tea. That's why Japanese matcha green tea powder should be taken with caution. People who can't take stimulants, like coffee, as well as pregnant women, should avoid this food.
The best way to enjoy organic matcha is by making tea or latte. The difference is determined by whether you use water or milk with the powder. In either case you should sift about a teaspoon of powder into a cup using a tiny sifter to break down clumps. Then, add a small amount of liquid and use a special bamboo whisk in a zig-zag motion to mix the drink until it's frothy. Drink right away before the powder settles back to the bottom of the cup.
You can also use a regular teaspoon and forego the sifter. In this case, add about a tablespoon of liquid to the powder and mix carefully to prevent clumps. Then, add a bit more liquid.
A properly made matcha would have a rich slightly bitter flavor with a sweet aftertaste.
The most important rule is to never mix any boiling hot liquids with your organic matcha green tea powder. They should be 175F max.
Aside from tea and latte, you can use the powder to add the green tea flavor to ice cream, smoothies, baked goods, mochi, and even homemade pasta.
