Ishikawa Matcha

£14.95£17.95

A stone-ground green tea traditionally whisked and served in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Made in Aichi by the Ishikawa family, this is one of the only single estate matcha we know of grown without any pesticides or artificial fertilisers.

Whisk a small scoopful of tea with water that has been cooled to 80-85°C. Matcha is also wonderful sprinkled on yoghurt or ice-cream, or used in baking.

We order this tea in small quantities and it is specially stoneground for us on demand ensuring it is as fresh as possible. We also recommend storing matcha in the fridge, as long as it is sealed and away from strong aromas.
