The Centuries-Old Practice of Matcha Making:
The traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony, or "Chado," is a ritual that dates back to over 900 years ago. The four pillars of this ceremony are harmony, respect, purity and tranquility. Matcha, the purest form of green tea, is prepared and consumed in this ritual.
Traditionally, the matcha bowl, or the "chawan," is the vessel you drink your tea out of, and the flat spoon, or the "chashaku," is what you use to scoop the matcha into the bowl. After adding water to your matcha, the whisk, or the "chasen," is used to froth and aerate the mixture into a smooth consistency. These tools are simple to use and get back to the roots of tea making.
Brew from the heart and with focused intentions.
Matcha tastes bold, earthy, and clean, and supports healthy brain function, boosts metabolism, and is rich in antioxidants. When you drink matcha, you are consuming the full tea leaf and all of the leaf's nutrients! The light, creamy and foamy drink is packed full of goodness and leaves you feeling satisfied and energized.
