Imagine taking five to ten minutes each day to prepare a cup of matcha: tapping in a small spoonful of green tea powder, pouring in 85°C water, then using slight wrist motions to make M shapes with a bamboo whisk to turn the liquid frothy. Each action delicate and deliberate, it’s no wonder the art of tea making has been adopted by Zen Buddhists. It is this meditative benefit that the founders of Inner Matcha want to share, along with premium green tea from Ise Bay in the Mie Prefecture. Matcha also holds antioxidant properties, moderate caffeine that is released with naturally occurring amino acids, and enhances your metabolism. An offering of different qualities of green tea, tea-making tools and tea ware is available at their website.
