From Tokyo to Banff : Unveiling the Secret Behind the Extraordinary Quality of Our Matcha Green Tea Powder
Matcha green tea has taken the world by storm, captivating tea enthusiasts with its vibrant green color, delicate flavor, and numerous health benefits. We will take you on a journey from Tokyo, the birthplace of matcha, to the serene landscapes of Banff National Park, revealing the secret behind the exceptional quality of our organic and high-quality matcha green tea.
Exploring the Family-Owned Farm in Kyoto
Jolene’s Matcha Green tea powder and all our traditional green tea are sourced from a family-owned farm situated in the southern region of Kyoto. NAKAI is a well-rounded enterprise that handles every aspect of production, including cultivation, processing, refining, packaging, and distribution in Wazuka, located at the southern end of Kyoto. This comprehensive approach allows NAKAI to maintain control over quality at every stage to ensure the delivery of exceptional products on time. For more than four centuries, the NAKAI family has been dedicated to producing Uji tea. Currently managed by its seventh generation with a team consisting of six full-time and seven part-time members. The entire farm operates without any use of herbicides or pesticides and is fully organic certified.
Organic Tea Matters!
When it comes to matcha green tea, quality matters. That's why we source our matcha from the lush tea fields of Japan, where traditional cultivation techniques have been perfected over centuries. Japan, with its rich tea-growing heritage, is renowned for producing the finest matcha in the world. Organic matcha is grown without the use of synthetic fertilizers or pesticides, preserving the natural integrity of the tea leaves. By choosing organic, you can enjoy matcha that not only tastes exceptional but is also free from harmful chemicals.
High-quality matcha goes beyond organic certification. It is made from the young leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, carefully hand-picked and stone-ground to produce a fine powder. This meticulous process helps retain the vibrant green color, distinct flavor, and rich nutrients that make matcha so special.
Incorporate Matcha to a Daily Routine
To start your day on a refreshing note, whisk a teaspoon of matcha green tea powder into hot water until frothy. Sip on this invigorating tea to awaken your senses and boost your energy levels. Alternatively, you can add a splash of almond milk and a touch of honey for a creamy and slightly sweet variation.
For those who prefer a cooler beverage, matcha green tea lattes are the perfect choice. Mix matcha powder with a small amount of hot water to create a smooth paste, then add frothed milk and a drizzle of maple syrup. The result is a creamy and indulgent treat that will keep you cool during the summer months.
How to Prepare and Enjoy Matcha Green Tea
To fully enjoy the exquisite taste and aroma of matcha green tea, it is essential to prepare it correctly. Here is a step-by-step guide to help you achieve the perfect cup of matcha every time:
- Start by sifting one teaspoon of matcha powder into a small bowl to remove any clumps and ensure a smooth consistency.
- Gradually add hot water (approximately 70-80°C) to the bowl, using a bamboo whisk or a small whisk to vigorously whisk the matcha in a zigzag motion until frothy.
- Once the matcha is frothy and well-blended, pour it into a cup and savor the moment. Take a moment to appreciate the vibrant green color and rich aroma before taking your first sip.
Testimonials From our Customers
''I will definitely buy this matcha again
This is the best Matcha I have tried. Bright green, very fine powder. Full of classic Matcha flavour. I would even say it looks better in person compared to the pictures. I haven't had any issues with lumps either. It mixes very easily into water! It gives me a gentle boost of energy that makes me feel balanced.''
I'm addicted to Jolene's Tea House Matcha! It's super high quality and not grainy at all. I start every morning with an iced matcha with a splash of oat milk, lemon zest and a bit of raw honey - so good!''
''Matcha is perfect
I bought some matcha green tea powder and a bamboo whisk. The matcha has a really nice flavor, it's not as earthy as some other matcha powders I've tried which I really like. The matcha also smells lovely while whisking it in the hot water.''
