Matcha is a fine green tea powder which is the tea at the centre of the Japanese tea ceremony and as such is a speciality.To produce good Matcha tender Gyokuru leaves are steamed briefly, dried in the air and finally, after removing all stems, is stone ground into a fine powder - a time consuming process. The shiny green Matcha is put directly into a tea bowl. Hot water is poured over it and foamed using a delicate bamboo wisk. This tea tastes bitter sweet with a fresh grassy aroma and vibrant coloured cup.

Also tastes good when drunk cold.
