While this tea can be drunk beaten into hot water like a “classical matcha,” its sweetness remains dominated by astringency. It is in fact meant to be used for training by those who have not yet mastered the technique of making matcha, and prefer to use a cheaper tea for practicing. This matcha is also perfect for cooking, such as for making green tea-flavoured cakes and milky beverages. For example, the matcha can be prepared in the usual way, and then milk and sugar can be added.
A low-cost matcha for original creations!

Steeping method
  • Quantity of leaves*: 2-3 g / scant tsp per person
  • Quantity of water: 70 ml / 1/4 cup per person
  • Water temperature: 70°C / 158°F
  • Preparation advice: Start by rubbing the bottom of the bowl strongly but slowly with the chasen (bamboo whip) to make sure the matcha melts into the hot water and does not form lumps. Next, holding the chasen loosely between the thumb, index finger and big finger, beat the liquid very strongly. The movement should come from the shoulder and elbow rather than from the wrist. Finally, when enough foam has formed on the surface, beat at medium speed to produce finer bubbles.
