Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir. Our Matcha Raspberry comes from Uji, Kyoto, and is a first harvest, spring tea blended with natural tart raspberry flavor. A Samidori cultivar, it is considered a high grade for everyday consumption. Steep at 170°F for 2 minutes

      I wasn't sure what to expect from this tea. From some reason I was expecting it to be sweet but it really isn't. it has a nice light raspberry flavor but really doesn't taste artificial. I found this one comparable to their blueberry matcha. My preferred choice is to mix this one with almond milk. Super delicious.
