Ceremonial Matcha - Omi
We found this tea through a friend's referral because tea producer - Kanji-san is also on a mission of letting the world know the purity and clean taste good Matcha. Just like what we believe in Clarity Tea :)
His Omi Matcha is very smooth and almost silky texture with natural creamy aroma.
*One Scoop of matcha = 1.2g = One serving
Why is that?
Kenji-san's family still keeps the traditional way to make matcha and other green tea. And the leaf he chooses is produce in the other side of the mountain of Uji, one of the last clean area for growing tea. He is the 5th generation of tea family.
He extended 5 extra days of "shading period" which increases the amount of L-theanine and also the sweetness in his matcha.
Produce in Shiga Prefecture Japan, a countryside next to Kyoto.
*Serves 20 cups
How to prepare?
1. Measure 1.5-2g of matcha with Shashaku (or half of normal teaspoon)
2. Prepare 80 degrees of hot water
3. Sift matcha powder to break big lumps
4. Pour 30ml of water and quickly whisk with Z or W shape
5. Enjoy it when it's still hot.
Nut, Mellow Sweet and Mildly Savory note
The first time I tried Clarity’s matcha was in a coffee shop. It was very smooth without bitterness or muddy taste. So I ordered one tin for myself right away. Hands down the best matcha in Dubai.
