Green Matcha ceremonial – 50 g BIO
Organic Ceremonial Green Matcha is one of the most exquisite types of tea available, a product with deep roots in the Japanese tea tradition. It is made from the most delicate and finest Tencha leaves, which are carefully harvested and processed by hand to produce this high-quality Matcha. These tea leaves are shaded a few weeks before harvest to increase the production of chlorophyll and amino acids, which gives the matcha its characteristic bright green color and rich flavor profile.
When you prepare this ceremonial matcha, you are in the midst of a practice that has been refined over centuries. For the best experience, it is recommended to add about half a teaspoon of the fine powder to a matcha bowl. Pour in water that is close to boiling point (about 80°C) and then whisk quickly with a bamboo whisk, the chasen, until a fine, creamy foam forms. This technique loosens up the powder and brings out its velvety texture and subtle yet intense flavors – a palette that ranges from sweet to tart nuances.
The Japanese matcha tea ceremony, also known as “chado” or “sado”, is an art form that combines meditation, respect and beauty in a harmonious ritual. She celebrates conscious slowing down, the precision of movement and deep immersion in the moment – aspects that are often lost in our hectic world. With every careful gesture, from the opening of the matcha to the first respectful sip, the connection between host and guest is strengthened and the shared experience of simplicity and peace is celebrated. The Ceremonial Grade Matcha is the centerpiece of this ceremony and serves as a noble vehicle to uplift the spirit and promote well-being.
Ceremonial Grade Matcha differs from its culinary counterpart in its sophisticated taste profile, which is characterized by a lower bitterness and more subtle sweetness. It is a quality that is primarily intended for drinking straight, usually simply prepared with water to fully appreciate its subtle nuances. In this form, matcha is not only appreciated for its taste, but also for its meditative effect. Preparing and drinking Ceremonial Matcha can be seen as an act of mindfulness, a time to focus on the moment and the experience.
The health benefits of Ceremonial Grade Matcha should not be underestimated. Rich in antioxidants, especially epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), it offers protection against free radicals. The increased content of L-theanine, an amino acid associated with relaxation and improved focus, makes it a popular drink for anyone looking for a natural way to boost their mental clarity.
Although it is often enjoyed pure, Ceremonial Matcha can also be prepared in a slightly sweet or milky version, which is particularly popular with those who are new to the world of matcha. A small drop of agave syrup or a pinch of coconut sugar can enhance the natural sweetness of the tea, while a dash of milk or a dairy-free alternative adds a velvety, soothing component.
Ceremonial Grade Matcha is not just a drink, it is an experience. Whether you use it as a quiet start to the day, as an invigorating break in between or as a ritual end to a long day – this matcha is an enrichment for any tea routine. It invites you to take your time, breathe deeply and embark on a journey that nourishes the mind as much as the body.
