Green powdered tea with a high caffeine level.
Most people associate matcha with the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, but it can also constitute an alternative healthy everyday habit. It can even be made into a high energy beverage with hot or cold milk.
This variety is produced from high quality Gyokuro tea shrubs that are covered with awnings 3 weeks before harvesting, thus developing a typical sweetness. After plucking, the leaves are stripped from the stem and ground into a fine powder. Matcha is highly nutritious because when you drink it you consume the whole leaf.
1. Heat the water to about 80° C (do not let it boil).
2. Put 1/2 - 1 level teaspoon matcha into a mug. Add a little hot water and stir well. When the mixture froths, add another 100 ml of water or hot milk.
