Traditionally used as an integral part of formal Japanese tea ceremonies, Matcha is a form of green tea that has attracted a lot of attention in recent years, making cameos in everything from cakes and ice creams to lattes and milkshakes. It’s endlessly photogenic and has undoubtedly popped up in your Instagram feed, but we’re here to talk tea.
Vivid green, bright and loaded with clean, grassy flavors, Matcha is essentially a finely powdered version of regular green tea. Our Matcha is crafted from the cholorphyll-rich leaves of the camellia sinensis plant that is shade grown.
The leaves are steamed and dried, once the stems and veins are removed the leaves are ground into a fine powder. Packing a little more of a savoury umami hit than your typical green tea flavor, Matcha makes a wonderful place to start for tea-venturers looking to explore the greener end of the tea spectrum. Lipton’s Green tea with Pure Matcha can help you make the most of everyday. It gives you the uplift you need to stay focused and embrace whatever comes your way.
