Matcha Wakatake

Matcha Wakatake

In Pursuit of Tea


Yields approximately 30-40 servings

Matcha ("powdered tea") is a special type of green tea: a precious, jewel-green powder made from handpicked, high-grade Japanese tea. Traditionally prepared hot, in a bowl, it can also be used in other forms.

Use this grade for preparing iced matcha: in a cocktail shaker, add 2-3 g sifted Matcha Wakatake over 4 oz ice cubes. Pour in 8 oz cold water and shake vigorously; strain and serve over ice. Wakatake is also great for baking.

Note: do not use Wakatake for hot matcha preparation; this grade is only suitable for iced.
