About Pure Matcha

Tea Type : Green Tea

Tea Forté’s Pure Matcha is an exceptional tea experience, offering the healthful joy of spring-harvested, shade-grown, stone-ground green tea. Its enlivening, earthy flavor comes as a surprise to those who are experiencing matcha for the first time, and its smooth richness is pleasing and familiar to those who love the ancient green powdered tea.

Stronger when prepared with water and more mellow when prepared with frothed milk, this matcha is not a blend, but rather, a single-ingredient offering. Its distinct flavor opens with the unmistakable lushness matcha is known for and rounds off into a vibrant green note as it swirls across the tongue. Because matcha powder is made using the entire green tea leaf, it carries a host of health benefits.

Matcha dates back to the Tang Dynasty in China, when it was dried into bricks from which people could break off small pieces and stir them into hot water for an invigorating natural beverage. In the 12th century, the father of Zen Buddhism introduced the concept of matcha to Japan, and it was incorporated into traditional Japanese matcha ceremonies over the centuries to come. Today, matcha is enjoyed around the world, due in part to its distinctive green color and in part to its status as a superfood, packed with antioxidants.

Pure Matcha may be prepared in a variety of ways. It may be served hot or cold, mixed with water or frothed milk. True tea enthusiasts may wish to prepare the ancient drink using our Ceremonial Bowl Set which comes with a traditional bowl, whisk, and ladle.

    For hot matcha, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of near-boiling water. Whisk thoroughly until rich and foamy. For best results, use a traditional bamboo whisk or frother.

    For a matcha latté, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of warm milk. Thoroughly mix with frother until tea becomes rich and foamy.

    For iced matcha or an iced matcha latte, blend one Matcha Single Steeps® (or 1 teaspoon) into 3.5 ounces of cool water (or milk for a latte). Mix thoroughly and add ice. For best results, use a traditional bamboo whisk or frother.

      Matcha Loose Tea Pouch

      I am a tea lover! I like all types of tea including black, green, white, and herbal. I have read about Matcha tea and have always wanted to try it, but I did not know how I would use it. I was hesitant because I thought it would be a lot of work compared to my other teas. I was wrong. It is simple to use. I put it in smoothies, drank it hot and cold, and I liked it in all of them. I am always trying to take a healthier option and this tea fits that. First, it is organic! It is very high in antioxidants! I try not to drink coffee because when I do I can end up feeling very anxious. I have been drinking this tea in the morning instead of having a cup of coffee and I do not get that anxious feeling! The taste is very pleasing, and I love knowing that I am adding positive elements to my body when I drink it. I will be ordering more of it because it is tasty, healthy, easy to use, and I want to make the right choices with what I eat and drink.

      Travel Size

      This 1 OZ pouch is convenient for traveling. The matcha powder blends well with hot water or warm almond milk using a bamboo whisk and creates a little latte froth. I like to sprinkle nutmeg on top. I have also tried the chocolate flavor match and like that one a little better than the plain.

      Smooth and Creamy

      I had bought the Matcha Sampler, which was great for tasting all the different flavors available, and to my surprise, I found that I liked the original, classic matcha very much. Previously, every time I had matcha it was bitter, but Tea Forte's matcha is very smooth and creamy, if you use the right amount and froth it well. Too much powder gets clumpy and a little bitter, so don't use the same teaspoon amount you would for, say, loose tea leaves. I am thinking of buying the proper whisk and tea ladle to get it right every time. I bought the Yunomi tea cups and measure out oat milk in them to warm up and then add the Pure Matcha powder to whip it up into a latte. I love the ritual of drinking it from these Japanese glass cups. It's my afternoon pick-me-up with just the right amount of caffeine boost too.

      Keeping it fresh and tasty

      I love the ziplock pouch because it stores the matcha so it is fresh for each use. This matcha has a smooth soft palette of flavor with no bitterness. I first made an iced matcha and it was frothy and refreshing. I also like using it to make Green tea ice cream.

      Doesn’t dissolve completely

      Flavor is ok, not anywhere near the strength that I am use to when I buy matcha in Japan. The main problem with this is that the matcha does not dissolve, no matter how much I whisk it. In fact, two bristles has broken off from my matcha whisk while trying to dissolve the powder. I hate sipping tea and all of a sudden, I get little beads of matcha in the mouth. Not pleasant at all.
