Matcha has become famous for the unique sense of calm and focused alertness it provides, and for its health properties: high-antioxidant levels, chlorophyll-rich, and metabolism-boosting, among others. It has been enjoyed for centuries, traditionally used by Japanese Zen monks for meditation and mindful living. Matcha tea is a practical and healthful choice that can be made in an instant, or meditatively brewed and sipped in a ritualized tea ceremony. Enjoy our Ceremonial Grade Matcha Tea Powder in these four simple recipes and experience for yourself the magic of matcha tea. It is recommended to use hot, but not boiling water, ideally 175°F.
