Matcha

Matcha.

Yesterday I visited the Japan Centre in Piccadilly to pick up some powdered green tea. As part of an overall grander scheme to improve my health and well-being, after trying the South Beach Diet recommended by Dr Weil during an interview with Kevin Rose about geek health issues.

Matcha is a variety of tea where the lea leaves have been crushed into a fine powder which is simply mixed with hot water to make the tea. It is also used extensively in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony called Chado or Chanoyu. It is often made with the same type of tea leaves that are used to make Gyokuro.

I’ve been drinking both regular green and more subtle white tea for a few years now and thought I’d compliment my drinking habits with Yamakaen matcha, although I’d have appreciated it if it were a little less costly.
