Matcha Maru, organic
This particularly prestigious Green Tea comes from the Kagoshima prefecture in Japan. It is then ground in Germany on stone mills and packaged in vacuum sealed, resealable bags to maintain the fresh quality.
The tea has a slightly nutty taste and maintains a fine balance between acerbity/tartness and sweetness.
This concentrated green tea powder is traditionally used in Japanese Tea Ceremonies.
Using 80 degree hot water, the powdered tea can be frothed up into an energizing beverage.
It is through the fine grinding of the tea that allows it to open up to a much higher degree, thereby giving its vitamins and antioxidants an increased bioavailability.
