Gotcha Matcha is rich in nutrients and antioxidants, especially the potent and renowned catechin, EGCg. Matcha contains caffeine, which stimulates the body, and amino acids, which relax the mind. A serving provides 3 to 4 hours of mild steady energy. Perfect for focusing on work, meditation or play. Vibrant green in color, matcha tea has a pleasing aroma and a rich full-bodied taste.
Add Gotcha Matcha™ to your favorite green tea recipes. Froth with milk, blend with fruit or add the rich taste of green tea to desserts, sauces and pastries.
Cafe grade matcha is made with less delicate tealeaves, has a stronger flavor and is ideal for using in cooking, baking and mixing with milk/yogurt drinks. The price of ingredient grade is related to how green the matcha powder is, denoting the quality of tealeaves used. The greener, or “younger” a matcha is, the more expensive.
Yes, Gotcha Matcha can be prepared as a tea with water, just like our other grades of matcha. The difference will be noticed in the color and flavor. Nutritionally the teas are comparable. All are 100% pure shade covered powdered green tea cultivated, harvested and produced in Japan.
For the same reason bakers sift flour before using. The static electricity in the air encourages powders (be it flour, baking powder, cocoa, etc) to stick together and form clumps. The same is true with matcha green tea powder. Sifting matcha smoothes it out and lets it blend better into your drink or cooking recipe.
We sourced this matcha from the environmentally friendly hillside region of Nishio. In the late 1800’s a Buddhist priest introduced the varietal and production techniques of the Uji region used in matcha production. Soon Nishio became a formidable producer of matcha tea. In 2001 JAS (Japanese Agricultural Standards Association), awarded its organic certification to the matcha teas from our Nishio farms.
