Now for a cuppa that will really pick you up

Now for a cuppa that will really pick you up

When you drink Matcha tea you are actually consuming the entire leaf making it at least 8-10 times stronger than any other regular cup of brewed green tea.

It’s been imbibed in Japan for almost 1000 years making it the oldest variety of Japanese shade grown green tea.One simply whisks the finely ground powder into the water to produce the bright green frothy tea. Traditionally a bamboo whisk or Chasen is used but if you don’t wish to stand on ceremony which somehow seems fitting when dealing with something so old and full of goodness. I’m sure purists wont object to you using any kind of whisk to get you started and converted to the matcha cuppa.
