Ceremonial Japanese Green Tea Powder
Shaded for 5 weeks – First flush
Biotona Bio Extra premium Matcha is a spring-green, refined green tea from Japan, with a rich, fruity and intense ‘umami’ flavour (thanks to the presence of theanine). Made exclusively from young tea leaves, which are traditionally handpicked at the beginning of May (the first harvest), after an overshadowing period of 5 weeks.

One of the options for drinking our tea powders is to use the following traditional method of preparation:
Bring fresh and preferably soft (lightly mineralised) water to the boil. Allow the water to cool to around 80°C (for example, take the lid off the kettle and wait for 10 minutes or pour the water back and forth four or five times into a separate receptacle). Add 1 to 2 g of tea powder (2 bamboo spoons or ½ a teaspoon, depending on your preference) to a bowl or cup and pour in the water (70-100 ml). Beat the tea for about 15 seconds with a bamboo whisk, until the fluid has a nice foamy top.
Naturally, this is not the only way to enjoy our tea powders. Why not drink your Matcha like many Japanese do: pure with ice cold water or 'on the rocks'. Alternatively, why not add some Matcha to your favourite smoothie, shake or warm drink. You can even add it to ice-cream, cakes and gastronomic dishes, using it with other herbs and spices!
Keep in a cool, dry and dark place.
