MATCHA - CEREMONIAL GRADE
What's It Taste Like: This stuff is like a flavour adventure waiting to happen. It's rich, it's aromatic, and the colour? Oh boy, it's like a neon green party in your cup! Matcha is like the chameleon of teas. You can enjoy it hot, like a warm hug on a chilly day, or go all-in with an iced version when the sun's blazing. And don't even get us started on the sweet possibilities! You can go full-on sugary delight or keep it au naturel, and it's still a sip-worthy superstar.
When to Brew: Matcha is like a superhero - whenever you need it, it'll be there. Need a natural energy boost without the jitters (yeah, I'm talking about you coffee), Matcha is for you. You can have it whenever, but I wouldn't recommend it before bed - first thing, or at the 3pm slump would be ideal
How I Brew: Whisk 0.5 tsp per cup in 75-85°C water. Add the water gradually and whisk thoroughly to get rid of the lumps. I have a little sugar sweet before drinking it, and it's takes the 'edge' off the pure tea flavour. You could make a Matcha Latte if you want, or even bake with this
