Matcha - Organic Stone ground 100g

€18,00 EUR

  • Stone milled Premium Matcha
  • Grown at farm that has been organic for forty years 
  • Nice and strong Umami, beautiful green colour

The tea farmer of this matcha started to cultivate this organic matcha 40 years ago, at a time when organic food was not yet popular. Organic Matcha is very rare to find since there is only one harvest in the year.

The dried tea leaves are ground with a stone mill, in order to obtain the best quality matcha. Most of the matcha on the market are ground with a machine, which simplifies the grinding process but does not give the same taste, scent, and quality to the final product.

This product is also wonderful for making/baking matcha sweets such as green tea cakes, tiramisu, and ice creams etc. It is also good to drink it as green tea latté when adding the milk, you can also add a little honey for sweeter.

Suggested accompany tool: Matcha Bowl, tea spoon, whisk
Like the other matcha, we recommended that you drink in the way of Ousu (おうす: the tea ceremony style), which means that the bamboo whisk and matcha bowl are encouraged for this tea.

How to enjoy:
1) Take a spoon full of matcha powder and place it in the bowl.
2) Pour 80°c - 70°c water over the matcha. Boiling water will ruin the matcha so make sure the water has cooled.
3) Hold the bowl firmly with one hand and whisk vigorously with the other for about 15 seconds, making an "M" or "W" shape movement.
4) When small foam appears on the surface, the matcha is ready

Storage: Please store in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight (Both before and after opening). It is best to consume it soon after opening. Otherwise, you could put it in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer.

Weight of pack: 100g

Japan-Best is first and foremost a story about Japanese craftsmen with the influence of contemporary design. We are inspired by the timeless beauty of traditional Japanese craftsmanship, and their ability to adapt to our modern lifestyle. The more brands we meet, the more passionate we become about the stories behind each product; the skills of the craftsmen, or the long tradition of an object left unchanged for generations yet somehow remaining contemporary.

Japan-Best is a collection of Japanese brands, which we have selected for the originality of their design, the quality of their production, the fact that their production is “Made in Japan”, and the long history that they maintain, quite often for several generations.

Our selection of Japanese food is also based on craftsmanship in agriculture. We choose brands based on how they are made and we love brands that continue to use traditional natural techniques to grow food and prepare it. Good packaging and design is always and added joy to find!
