What is Matcha?

Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf powder, traditionally used as part of the tea ceremony and by Buddhist monks to keep focussed and alert during their meditation practice. The most prized amongst Japanese teas, it is valued for its high antioxidant content and many other health benefits.

This very concentrated form of green tea is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every last bit of goodness.

Brewing the Perfect Cup of Tea

Although making a cup of tea may seem like a really simple thing, making a really good cup of tea is an art!

Qualities: With a slightly grassy aroma and deep rich taste, sencha is the classic Japanese green tea. At Clearspring we harvest the tender first of the season leaves, which are known to be the best due to their brighter colour and gentler, slightly sweeter flavour.

Quantities: 1 teabag per person

Water temperature: 70-90°C - brewing at this temperature will stop the tea from becoming bitter while allowing the full flavour of the tea to come out.

Brewing time: 1-2 minutes

Third Generation Tea Family from Kyoto, Japan

In the hills around Kyoto a third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.

The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
