A way of tea unique to Japan, Matcha is a shade-grown green tea ground into a fine powder. An antioxidant powerhouse, Matcha drinkers benefit from ingesting the whole leaf rather than the brewed leaves. Numi’s Citrus Matcha is of the highest quality and has a bright savory taste with a lemongrass, orange peel kick.
JAPANESE TRADITIONAL MATCHA TEA CEREMONY
The matcha tea ceremony is an ancient Japanese tradition representing peace, harmony and happiness. The quiet ritual requires a defined series of precise hand movements and graceful presentation. Matcha is prepared at a table with a bamboo whisk and ceramic bowl and is then passed around the table for a sip from each guest. It concludes with another bow to signify respect to each other.
