This Japanese matcha has a jammy-like smoothness. Luxury grade green tea and Gyokuro gives a light astringent finish. Exceptionally high anti-oxidants per cup. Use 1/2 tsp per 8oz serving. Add 1/2 tsp to base of cup and add 2oz of hot water and mix vigorously to make a smooth paste-like liquid. Top with freshly steamed milk (or substitute). Sweeten to taste.
