Matcha is the powdered leaf tea used in the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony. To make Matcha, fresh green tea leaves from the finest Gyokuro green tea are ground into a fine powder using a stone mill. For the tea ceremony the powdered Matcha is measured with a chashaku (bamboo spoon) and is placed in a chawan (serving bowl), hot water is added, then whipped with a chasen (bamboo whisk) until frothy. The thick frothy tea is sipped right from the bowl. Two drinks can be prepared from Matcha for the ceremony--Usucha made with 1.5 heaping chashaku , or Koicha made with 3 heaping chashaku . Matcha has a bright jade green color and an unexpected distinctive flavor that is mellow and slightly sweet. Tip: For home use, add 1/2 teaspoon to 1 teaspoon of Matcha to 2-3 ounces of just below boil fresh water. Add more water to desired taste. Stir or whisk until frothy. Refrigeration of Matcha is recommended.
