Chinese Matcha


Packaging Type

Matcha originated in China in the middle of the last millennium, then that tea culture was transferred to Japan, and was forgotten in China during the tumultuous years when the Qing Dynasty ruled. It is only recently that the Chinese have rediscovered their ancient methods. This is one of the best made in China.

Please make it the same way as Japanese Matcha, stir it into 160º F water.
