Grade: Fine matcha. Made to Japanese specifications.
Caffeine Level: Medium Antioxidant Level: Medium
Characteristics: A premium powdered green tea, grown on the Izu peninsula near Tokyo.
Luxury Ingredients: luxury green tea
Grown on the east coast of central Japan, Izu matcha leaves are smooth and complex.
The tea is prepared by whisking the powder into a liquid froth in a bowl, then served in small cups. It has gained popularity for its health benefits, because when you drink the whole leaf, you also benefit from all of the anti-oxidants and minerals it contains. It is best brewed with just under boiling (175°F) water and whisked into a heavy green froth which makes it akin to espresso. It is also very versatile in cooking and adding to shakes and smoothies for the added benefits of #ltheanine , which is a compound found in green tea that neutralizes the caffeine to give you more mental clarity and focus, instead of the jitters and crash!

I personally adore matcha, and have been very pleased with this matcha powder. This is the second time I've ordered it, and the quality's great! I usually whisk it with some hot water then add honey and either almond milk or oat milk. Delicious!
