About Chai Matcha
: Green Tea
Tea Forté’s Chai Matcha draws upon the spiced tea tradition of India, where chai means “tea” in Hindi, and the Japanese tradition of matcha, a vibrant powder made from spring-harvested, shade-grown, stone-ground green tea leaves. This lightly spiced matcha blend, a perfect blend for those seeking comfort in a cup, marries cinnamon and ginger with earthy matcha powder and a hint of sweetness.
Matcha lovers who are already accustomed to its distinct flavor may wish to prepare it with water, which allows its full verdant flavor to take center stage, accented by warming chai spices. Those preferring the subtle pleasures of chai spices in equal measure with the unique richness of matcha will undoubtedly enjoy its preparation as a matcha latte, made with frothed milk. Each Chai Matcha packet contains only 11 calories per serving, satisfying sweet treat cravings without a care in the world.
This ancient green tea powder offers a host of healthful perks, and its reputation as a superfood is well-deserved thanks to its high level of antioxidants. Commonly thought of as a traditional Japanese beverage, matcha actually dates back to the Tang Dynasty in China. It made its way to Japan in the 12th century, at which point it quickly caught on among samurai warriors and members of the upper class. Over the next few centuries, it fell in and out of fashion and ultimately became a drink of the people. Today, tea enthusiasts all over the world enjoy its earthy richness and emerald-green beauty.
Chai Matcha may be prepared in a variety of ways -- hot or cold, with water or frothed milk. For a truly traditional experience, it may be made and served with our Ceremonial Bowl Set
