Matcha Tea & Natural Mocha Flavor
Grab the martini shaker for some alcohol-free fun: Put in 8 oz. of freshly brewed Matcha Mocha (1 tsp. tea with 8 oz. hot (160-180°F.) water) then add (or not) your favorite sweetener, and a good dollop of plant milk, like soy, oat, almond or rice (we especially love almond milk in this.) Drop in a half-dozen ice cubes and shake it to your favorite salsa tune, and pour into chilled glasses. You’ll love the combination of our spring harvest matcha, blended with natural mocha flavor for a creamy chocolatey coffee accent. You’ll be ready to dance all day long!
Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder.
Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir. Our matcha comes from Uji, Kyoto, Japan, and is a first harvest, spring tea. A Samidori cultivar, it is considered a high grade for everyday consumption.
