Clearspring Organic Japanese Matcha Green Tea Blend
Organic Matcha Green Tea
Clearspring Organic Matcha Green Tea is a delicious blend created especially for us by our expert tea producers in Japan. It combines the exceptionally light, smooth and refreshing flavour of Japanese Sencha with distinctly rich and exquisite ceremonial grade Matcha Powder. Skilfully blended and packed on our tea producers’ estate immediately after production to ensure the freshest quality.
Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf powder and is the most prized amongst Japanese teas. It has been drunk as part of the tea ceremony for 900 years as well as by Buddhist monks during long days of meditation.
This very concentrated form of green tea is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every last bit of goodness.
Sencha green tea leaves* (97.5%), matcha green tea powder* (2.5%)
* Organically grown

How to Use
Although making a cup of tea may seem like a really simple thing, making a really good cup of tea is an art!
Qualities: With a slightly grassy aroma and deep rich taste, sencha is the classic Japanese green tea. At Clearspring we harvest the tender first of the season leaves, which are known to be the best due to their brighter colour and gentler, slightly sweeter flavour.

Water temperature: 70-90°C - brewing at this temperature will stop the tea from becoming bitter while allowing the full flavour of the tea to come out.
