July 31, 2016

Servings:

  • Serving size: 1 level tsp or 2 bamboo scoops = about 2 grams (adjust to suit your need).  *Double the serving for stronger taste.   
  • *Note - If you have a sweet tooth, you might not like the grassy note in pure matcha with just water, add honey or your favorite sweetener to taste. 
    • Uji Premium and Uji Reserve require less sweetener to be sweetened.

Health Benefits and Amount per Serving of 2 Grams:

  • Catechins: ~240mg (includes 120mg EGCG), a powerful antioxidant.
  • L-Theanine: ~30mg, a precious amino acid almost unique to matcha. It increases mental calmness and focus across a few hours. Higher in Uji Premium and Uji Reserve.
  • Caffeine: ~60mg ( = ~2/3 of an 8 oz cup of coffee). Improves alertness and energy level.
  • The unique combination of caffeine and theanine may have the effect of making you feel alert and calm at the same time without jitter and sustaining the mental focus without a crash. Studies show its effects on improving mental clarity and cognitive performance. 

Tools Needed:

  • Matcha Bowl (Chawan), your favorite cup or pourer
  • Matcha Spoon (Chashaku) or Tea Spoon
  • Electric Whisk
  • Sifter
  • Tea Kettle - Bring out the Umami by using hot water between 165-175F.  You can boil water and let it sit for 3-5 minutes prior to pouring. 
  • Your Favorite Milk or Water (Americano)
  • *For best taste, use fresh water not tap water.

How to make deliciously potent green tea Latte, Cappuccino or Americano:

Step 1: Sift Matcha in your favorite cup or pourer (Recommended).  Push matcha gently through the sifter into the cup. 

Step 2:  Add about 20 ml of water or 1 oz just enough to saturate the matcha and stir gently with electric whisk.  The matcha should be thick.  This helps bring out the umami of the matcha.

Step 3:  Add 2-3 oz of water and begin to whisk the matcha.  Tilt the cup slightly and make sure to get the corners of the cup.  Add sweetener now and adjust to taste.

Step 4A: For Hot Drink:  Add warm or cold milk per your preference and fill up your cup.  For americano style, add hot water and fill the cup.

Step 4B: For Iced Drink:  Pour matcha over ice than add Milk for Latte or Water for Americano.

Step 5: Sip and Enjoy
