  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.

    Tea Type Steeping Temperature Steeping Time
    White Tea  170-185 F 1-3 minutes
    Green Tea 170-185 F 2-3 minutes
    Oolong Tea 170-190 F 2-3 minutes
    Black Tea 200-212 F 3-5 minutes
    Tisanes 212 F 4-7 minutes

       Fruit and herbal teas are also referred to as tisanes.

Matcha Green Tea

I made it using 8 ounces of unsweetened vanilla almond milk and 1/2 tsp of the Matcha, blending it with an electric whisk. Never had Matcha before but this was really good. It was very light in flavor and it paired well with the almond milk. Can't to try other things out with it!

Ashley, it sounds like matcha has opened the door to new tastes for you. Try baking with it, there are countless ways to enjoy it.
Mixes nicely with the bamboo thingy

It's smooth and it mixed up really nice. As for taste, most any green drink you have will taste like a green drink. I am quite happy with my purchase. I drink it once a day in the morning for sustained not to jittery clarity through the 6 hours of boost it gives you. Would not suggest more than once a day and not closer than 6 hours apart.

Thank you Paula for your insightful observations and recommendations. I'm sure many readers will take note of your comments and appreciate your input.

Loved adding matcha to my hemp cacao smoothie this morning. It added a hearty, earthy element and game me focused energy. No caffeine crash, like coffee!

Thanks Kate! Matcha certainly does open doors to opportunities for making healthy and delicious drinks.
