Commercial Description

The expression of an ancient Japanese art form - the luminous, jade green cup of Hikari is Matcha at its finest. Only premium, specially cultivated Tencha leaves are chosen for careful processing and grinding. This is the chosen tea of the Japanese Tea Ceremony - frothy and creamy with full body and lingering sweetness.

Brewing Instructions: (from TeaGschwendner)

One level teaspoon (1.5g) Matcha powder per 4oz cup of filtered water, boiled and cooled for approximately 12-13 minutes to 60°C/140°F. Whip with a bamboo whisk (chasen) until foamy.

note: this is the first matcha tea i've tried. i really don't know anything about them.

i don't really know what i'm doing. a friend of mine happened to have a tin of this [received as a gift], and we tried our best to properly prepare it according to internet directions.

it was a tasty green tea. light in flavor. it was definitely not expertly prepared, and i don't know what i'm looking for in a matcha. i can't say if this is good or not as matchas go..

what i do know: $$$$
