Matcha Thick Tea
Matcha is a first class type of stone-ground powdered tea and is used for the Japanese tea ceremony. The tea is prepared with a bamboo whisk (chasen) in a unique bowl (a chawan). This very high grade Matcha is called Koicha, or Thick Tea, which refers to the method in which it is traditionally prepared. Usually a bowl of this tea is made with less water and more tea, creating an extremely thick consistency. When prepared in a traditional Matcha ceremony, the process for its preparation can last more than twice as long as the Thin Tea style. The taste is creamy, vegetal, and deeply sweet.
