Matcha – Golden Turmeric Spice
Innovative spice-infused turmeric – a sweet and wholesome herbal matcha.
Traditionally, Matcha is a finely ground, powdered tea made from specially grown green tea leaves – for more information on the history and traditions of Matcha, please refer to Izu Green Matcha.
It is consumed by whisking it into water or milk so the powder is suspended in the liquid, thus enabling the consumption of the whole leaf. The resulting health benefits are signifincantly increased.
There’s more … our innovative suppliers have discovered that other teas, herbs and spices can also be ground to create a fabulous variety of speciality matcha powders which can be consumed in many and varied delicious ways. Nowadays, Matchas are used much more widely and are an on trend flavouring for all sorts of foods including ice creams, smoothies, bakes and cakes as well as being adapted by coffee/tea houses into hot and iced lattes.

HOW TO USE YOUR MATCHA …
The traditional way …
Whilst our Matcha green tea is of ceremonial grade we like to keep things simple and fun – we think the following methods will work well for you;
Boil preferably filtered water then leave to cool for about 2 -3 minutes – this will ensure peak flavour and enable you to drink your tea straight away.
Use a little of the hot water to warm a small bowl, throw away and dry the bowl. Add approx. 2/3 teaspoon of Matcha powder to the bowl – it’s a good idea to sieve if possible so the results are not lumpy.
Pour in approx. 1/3 cup of the hot water and whisk carefully at first to submerge the powder and then more vigorously in a back-and-forth motion until the powder is blended and the liquid is frothy. Drink up and enjoy your super healthy Matcha green tea!
Matcha Lattes …
Hot or iced Matcha Lattes are popular, healthy, easy and delicious – just replace the traditional coffee with your chosen Matcha blend.
Use the Traditional Method above to create a base with your Matcha powder. Add hot milk (froth optional) or cold milk (ice optional). We firmly believe you should tweak your recipes to create your own perfect drink;
- Use any variety of milk you like.
- Sweeten to taste with your preferred honey or syrup.
- Maybe try out your favourite flavoured syrups or add spices.
- Decorate with a little matcha sprinkle.
