Avoid using boiling water when preparing matcha as it destroys catechins as well as the flavor. Water should be about 170 F.
Good read. Good need-to-know information! I love matcha tea.
matcha tea is not safe for everyone. Research before using.
Been drinking this for years, incorporating the Japanese ritual into my morning routine really helps calms me and helps me stay focused through the day.
Thnaks for the reminder. I am almost out.
Matcha is delicious and also amazing for the skin when used as a mask. :)
Love Matcha. I usually drink it when I reach an afternoon low.
My wife loves this!
I love Matcha. I put a tbls of Matcha, 2 tsp turmeric, 2 tsp ginger, and 2 tsp of Ceylon cinnamon in 4 cups of water. Bring to a boil. Excellent healthy concoction
Remember that if a food/drink , especially teas, are being used for its health/healing benefits, it must be organic. Processing destroys those properties. Also, sugar is sugar, organic or not! Try the teas as they are for awhile before starting to add sweetness.
I put some in my daily smoothie...not much of a tea drinker but I figure it's good for you
and I need all the help I can get.
Matcha does take a bit of getting used to. I love it...now!
