A unique blend of Japanese Matcha tea for first time Matcha drinkers. Crispy, fresh and aromatic. Ideal for entering the world of Matcha. This Matcha is also ideally suited for cooking and can be enjoyed in mixed drinks with milk or soy milk. Izumi tastes stronger and slightly more astringent than other higher grade Matcha teas. The name Izumi means “spring”.
Boil fresh, soft water. Let the water cool down to 80°C (e.g. open kettle and wait for 10 min or pour the water at least 4-5 times into another cold pot – water looses 4-5° C with each decanting).
Put 1g Matcha (2 bamboo scoops or ½ tea scoop) into the Matcha bowl.
Add up 80ml of hot (80°C) water.
Whisk the tea with a Matcha whisk until a fine froth appears. It will take you around 15 seconds to prepare your cup of Matcha tea.
