Bisou Ceremonial Matcha is a traditional Japanese green tea powder. It has an amazing jade coloured infusion, that brews with a sweet touch and mild astringency, and lots of green tea umami aromas. It is a soothing and restful ensemble of chamomile with hints of mild citrus notes that make this a very relaxing tea. As an green tea, it has very high antioxidant levels and mild caffeine. Like all of Bisou’s teas, it’s 100% organic. The only ingredient is matcha green tea sourced from Shizuoka, Japan. To brew, sift 2 grams (1.5 teaspoons) of matcha into your tea bowl. Add 2 oz of hot (just below boiling) water, and whisk with a matcha whisk for 10-15 seconds for a bright green, foamy tea. Add the remaining water or steamed milk, and continue to whisk until frothy. Sweeten to taste if you’d like. Each beautiful tin holds 40 grams of loose powder.
