Sing Tehus – Matcha “starter kit”
Matcha represents the ultimate form of green tea as it consists of the finest green tea leaves which have been ground to powder. The tea leaves themselves are thereby being consumed and one accordingly obtains 100% of the active components and vitamins inherent the leaves––rather than the 40-50% contained in infusions. The fine powder becomes completely dissolved and turns into an airy tea with creamy foam on top after whisking. Matcha has a mild taste and it serves as a distinguished representative for the 5th basic taste, Umami, which the Japanese people recognised twenty years ago as their favourite taste.
Matcha is also the tea that is made during Japanese tea ceremonies.
