Matcha is a unique and flavorful green tea that has been enjoyed for centuries in Japan. Our Ceremonial Matcha is a high-quality, premium-grade matcha that is perfect for tea enthusiasts who appreciate its rich, complex flavor and numerous health benefits. Here are some ways to make and enjoy our ceremonial matcha green tea:
- Traditional Matcha Preparation: To make traditional matcha, you will need a matcha bowl, a bamboo whisk, and a scoop. First, sift 1/2 - 1 teaspoons of ceremonial matcha into the bowl. Then, add 4 ounces of hot water (not boiling). Use the bamboo whisk to mix the matcha and water until it forms a frothy, smooth liquid. Sip and enjoy!
- Matcha Latte: If you prefer a creamier, more indulgent matcha experience, try making a matcha latte. Mix 1 teaspoon of ceremonial matcha with 2-3 ounces of hot water, then add 6 ounces of your favorite milk (dairy or non-dairy) and a touch of sweetener if desired. Use a frother or blender to mix until frothy, then pour into a mug and enjoy.
- Matcha Smoothie: For a refreshing, energizing matcha drink, try blending ceremonial matcha with your favorite fruits and veggies. Mix 1-2 teaspoons of matcha with frozen bananas, spinach, almond milk, and a splash of vanilla extract for a delicious and healthy smoothie.
- Matcha Baked Goods: Matcha can also be used in baking! Try adding a teaspoon of matcha to your favorite muffin, pancake, or cake recipe for a unique and flavorful twist. Matcha pairs well with citrus, vanilla, and chocolate flavors.
- Matcha Ice Cream: For a sweet treat that combines the flavors of matcha and creamy ice cream, try making your own matcha ice cream at home. Mix 1 teaspoon of ceremonial matcha with a can of coconut milk, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Pour the mixture into an ice cream maker and churn until it reaches the desired consistency.
