The Republic of Tea U Matcha Charcoal Tea
- Premium Japanese matcha green tea powder with activated bamboo charcoal
- For detoxing
- Sip warm or over ice
- Earthy flavor
- Makes 20+ cups
Unlike regular green tea, these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder. Instead of being steeped, U•Matcha is blended into water and sipped (ground powder and all) allowing your body to take in more of the health benefits that green tea has to offer. This energizing tea has the balanced savory flavors of what is referred to as umami (literally, yummy in Japanese).
Matcha blended with activated bamboo charcoal can help cleanse the digestive system by binding to and removing toxins from our body. Charcoal is essentially flavorless so the grassy, earthy flavor of premium matcha shines through. Drink 2 cups daily for detoxing.
Directions: Fill the kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. Fill matcha bowl or cup with warm water and pour out. Add ½ to 1 teaspoon of matcha powder to bowl or cup. Add 6 oz of steaming water (175°F), filtered water. Experiment to find your favored strength. Mix with a whisk or a hand frother until well blended. For iced tea, blend ½ to 1 teaspoon with 8 oz of cold water and pour into a glass of ice.
Ingredients: Ground Japanese Green Tea Tencha (leaves); Activated Bamboo Charcoal (Bamboo Shoot)
