We are thrilled to introduce you to the flagship matcha of HealthyTOKYO, the essence of high quality you will be hard pressed to find anywhere else. The finest organic leaves, crafting skills passed through generations, and the genuine taste of Japanese matcha: this is our Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony. A temptation for those who are willing to delve deeper into the secrets of Japanese Tea Ceremony.
Since the 16th century, matcha has become synonymous with harmony and tranquillity. It has gained its reputation as the core of the sophisticated ritual of the tea ceremony, both appealing and at the same time daunting in its complexity. All our efforts have been concentrated into bringing you traditional matcha in a way that is easy to understand, while it embodies the true, solemn essence of the tea ceremony. Learn to appreciate the Japanese wabi-sabi, the beauty of impermanence, as you sip a refined cup of matcha.
Our Matcha Superior Ceremony uses exclusively ichibancha (first flush leaves), the finest tea plucked during the earliest harvest. Grown and harvested on the lush hills of Kagoshima and Aichi, and meticulously plucked between May and June, the leaves used in our matcha are 100% organic.
Only the finest tea leaves are selected, before being carefully processed and ground into a delicate powder with great patience. A long, careful process, for which grinding 30 grams of tea leaves with handmade stones can take one hour. The resultant taste is natural, not contaminated by synthetic chemicals, pesticides, or heavy metals.
As with all organic matcha, its taste depends on factors including the weather, soil and growth. You will never find two identical matchas, as you will never find two identical bottles of wine. Matcha sommeliers ascertain the grade and taste of the batches one by one. Only the matcha rated the highest-quality becomes HealthyTOKYO’s Matcha Superior Ceremony, as our customers deserve.
For centuries, matcha has been a staple in both the Japanese diet and culture. This reflects not only the enduring popularity of its taste, but also the positive effect it has had, and continues to have, on people’s well-being. Matcha contains numerous vitamins and antioxidants, that supply the immune system with what it needs to function, helping you to stay strong and vital. The L-theanine contained in matcha is said to be beneficial for metabolism and to aid reaching a healthy weight. If you are having a hard time finding the right snack to accompany your efforts to be healthy, we warmly suggest you consider our matcha.
From the branch to the shelf, we ensure that our Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony is handled with the greatest care and attention, in order to preserve that authentic flavor.
HealthyTOKYO’s Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony is characterized by a rich umami and sweetness that is unique to the highest quality tea leaves. The levels of bitterness and astringency are almost imperceptible, only a contour to the rich delight of its flavor. Bright and vivid, the green shade reflects the unrivaled quality of its cultivation and thorough crafting. With a subtle fragrance, the taste of our Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony is not excessively intense. The result is a full-bodied green tea, sweet and foamy, with an alluring fragrance that is sure to make you hum in pleasure.
A good matcha evokes the sensations of harmony, tranquility and purity. Empty your mind and free yourself of daily stress and worries. A cup of our matcha can promote a state of deep relaxation and stimulate the ability to focus and ponder in serenity.
Whisk and Enjoy
To enjoy Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony in its pure form, add half a teaspoon of matcha powder to your cup, pour hot water (ideally at a temperature of 80°C), and whisk until you obtain a rich foam with fine bubbles. Then serve and savor.
It is not, however, the only way to prepare matcha: if you add a larger dose of powder to a smaller quantity of water (around 8g per 80ml), you will obtain a milder, sweeter, thick tea (koicha). On the other hand, if you add a smaller dose to a larger quantity of water (around 2g per 80ml), then you will have a lighter, slightly more bitter tea (usucha). Both are equally enjoyable, let your palate guide you into preparing the perfect cup for yourself.
HealthyTOKYO’s Organic Matcha Superior Ceremony will bring exquisite, well-deserved luxury into the lives tea ceremony enthusiasts and casual tea-lovers alike.
