Matcha Green Tea
Certified Organic from Japan.
DōMatcha® is 100% authentic Japanese stone-ground green tea, directly from Kagoshima and Uji, Kyoto where Japanese matcha originated. Dō (pronounced ‘doh’) is the Japanese symbol for ‘way’ or ‘journey’. DōMatcha® means ‘The Way of Matcha’. This is Grade A Gold Matcha, the highest quality. Also, known as 'Ceremonial Matcha'.
Paying homage to the traditional tea ceremonies of Japan, only the finest, youngest tea leaves are selected for DōMatcha® Ceremonial. It is made from young, de-veined and de-stemmed shade-grown tencha tea leaves that are slowly stone-ground into a fine powder. De-veining and de-stemming the tea leaves is labour intensive but removes most of the strong bitter taste found in most other matcha powders. This matcha has a high nutritional value, including the unique properties of L-theanine and catechins (antioxidants). Scores 1384 on the ORAC test Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity.
Ideal to enjoy as a traditional whisked matcha.
: Put ½-1 teaspoon of Matcha in a large cup or a drinking bowl and add a small amount of hot water (60-90ml – 2-3 oz). The ideal water temperature for DōMatcha is 80 C/ 176 F. Whisk in a quick, light zig-zag motion until a layer of green froth appears on the surface. After whisking, add more water if desired (up to 240ml/8oz).
*Can also be used to make a latte, in a fruit smoothie, in raw desserts, or in baking!
