Low Caffine │ Matcha │ Marukyu Koyamaen
Contains 80% less caffeine than regular Matcha blends. The caffeine is extracted naturally using only fresh water. The tea leaves are then freeze-dried and ground by stone mills. This process does not reduce the amino acids many seek for the health benefits of matcha. More than 90% of the theanine, amino acids, and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) contained in the catechins remain, which helps regulate blood pressure and serve as antioxidants.
STEP 2. Pour 70 ml / 2.4 oz of water 80℃ / 176°F water over the matcha powder.
STEP 3. Whisk with a tea whish (chasen) until foamy.
RECOMMENDATIONS❖ Use soft water, but not mineral, distilled or purified water. Much of US tap water is hard water, containing minerals that may interfere with the taste of your tea. If you have hard water or lack a filtration system to remove mineral particles, then bottled water can be used. Distilled or purified water may result in a flat tea.
