There are two methods for traditionally preparing Matcha Green Tea; Koicha (produces a thick drink) and Usucha (produces a thin drink). Koicha is sweeter and mellower, requiring very little water to mix and results in a thicker drink than Usucha. Koicha is the method for preparing Matcha for Japanese tea ceremonies. Usucha has more water than Koicha and so is easier to froth. Both preparations only have 2 ingredients- Shade grown Tea powder plus hot water (preferably filtered).
If you’re looking for some creative recipes then this is the section for you. Being powdered means that matcha can be used in lots of recipes. It can be enjoyed in lattes, smoothies and in baking. For a quick and easy Matcha Latte you only need 4 ingredients: Kineta Organic Tea Powder, coconut sugar/ local honey (if you have a sweet tooth), warm water and milk (preferably non-dairy).
