IZU Matcha Starter Set

In simplicity lies clarity, and nothing could be more elegantly simple than preparing a bowl of matcha with a traditional whisk and water. Create your own personal ritual and prepare delicious and restorative green tea that can be enjoyed alone or, even better, with a friend.

THE WAY OF MATCHA / The centerpiece of the tea ceremony, matcha is a prized, powdered green tea from Japan. Made from the highest grade of tea leaves that have been stoneground, matcha provides you with tea’s full store of antioxidants, nutrients, and amino acids—most of which are lost when you just steep tea leaves. 

L-THEANINE / For centuries, matcha has been an invaluable aid in meditation practice. Modern science has discovered that the foundation of this tradition is L-Theanine, a rare amino acid that actually promotes calm alertness. Not only does L-Theanine help negate daily stress, it also aids in concentration and memory. In concert with matcha’s other healthful components, it leaves you relaxed, refreshed, and focused.

THREE STEPS TO FINDING YOUR FOCUS

  1. MATCHA. Add one teaspoon of matcha to a bowl. (If using a traditional bamboo tea scoop, add 2 heaving scoops.)

  2. WATER. Add two ounces of hot water (preferably filtered or bottled) at 180° F to the bowl. For a richer, fuller body, use just one ounce of water.

  3. WHISK. Whisk the tea and water in a vigorous back and forth motion until the tea is dissolved and a light froth appears.

ALL YOU NEED TO FIND YOUR FOCUS IS IN THIS SET:

•   One 2oz bag of Matcha
•    One Bamboo Whisk & Bamboo Tea Scoop
•    IZU Matcha Informational sheet
