This matcha tea is produced by Koyama-en in Kyoto. Koyama-en is one of the most prestigious tea makers in Japan, they have been producing matcha tea since the 17th Century. We import these teas directly from Kyoto.
This particular matcha tea has 80% less caffeine than most other matcha. Matcha contains very large amounts of Vitamin C (over 4 times more than an orange!), but also contains quite high volume of caffeine.
This matcha is perfect for those wanting to cut down on their caffeine intake or looking to have some matcha before bed. It is also a great choice for younger tea lovers.
How to Make Perfect Matcha:
We recommend you use not quite boiling water, around 80°C works well.
If you are using a chashaku (a Japanese bamboo teaspoon) we recommend 2 scoops, or 1 scoop from an ordinary teaspoon (approx. 1.5g)
- Add 2 scoops of matcha powder to your tea bowl or cup.
- Pour around 70ml of not quite boiling water into the tea bowl.
- Whisk the matcha with a chasen (Japanese bamboo whisk) or small whisk, for about 15 seconds until smooth and slightly foamy.
- Relax and enjoy!
