This Matcha is the magical culmination of our love for tea, our appreciation of Japanese culture and tradition, and our borderline obsession with quality. We sourced this Matcha on our last trip to Japan in April...
Matcha is an excellent source for:
- Sustained energy levels
- May promote a sense of calm and focus
- May enhance metabolism
- May support immunity
The name "White Dragon" is inspired by a pilgrimage we took during the trip to God Dragon Temple, a two-hour hike through mountains and wildlife - a mystical and transformational journey itself - which opens to a beautiful stone and wood temple at the summit ... We feel this bright, activating verdant tea is imbued with the spirit of mysticism, light, power, and strength we personally associate with Dragon and Dragon Mythology as well as our multi-dimensional human journey... It is an honor to be able to share it with you.
Deep green, soft young leaves from shade-covered tea shoots are picked, dried, steamed and ground. The whole leaf is used and makes a sacred, antioxidant + nutrient-rich tea to be served warm or cool and integrated into daily rituals, recipes, meditations and magical moments.
Add 1/2 teaspoon to your favorite cup or bowl and an ounce of room temperature water. Whisk gently (we love to use our Black Bamboo Chasen) and fill the remainder of cup 2/3 full with water (warm or cool) and whisk in a zigzag pattern until frothy with love. Makes an excellent addition to smoothies, shakes, raw cakes and even face masks!
Tea-trees are shade-grown in a naturally-cultivated soil, without the use of any fertilizers, pesticides, chemical or organic amendments.
