Like many people when I heard about White Matcha Tea (60g), I immediately thought of Green Tea. Hey, the first Matcha I ever tried was green tea. I soon discovered there is a difference between the two.
My family has made Matcha apart of our daily diet. When my daughter and I tried Red Leaf, White Matcha we really liked it. Well, my daughter kept saying, “I love White Matcha!”
White Matcha, does not taste as strong as Green Matcha. It is is light and rather smooth, I should say it is not as gritty. After drinking our Matcha we felt energized. I say this because, we had to wake up really after a long day and night before. White Matcha has a low caffeine content and we stay away from caffeine, so this small amount may have had something to do with our energy levels. It was a welcomed surprise.
White Matcha is made in exactly the same way as regular Green Tea Matcha is made: stone ground to a fine powder. But Red Leaf has done it with White Tea. For people who like Matcha Tea in its original form as a Green Tea, you know how flavorful and pure it is. Red Leaf wants to give that to all tea lovers. Whether you like Green Tea, Black Tea, White Tea or any other kind of tea, they want you to experience the Matcha in different flavors. Stone grinding is a special process that does not take away from the flavor or take away any of the health benefits of original tea leaves. Basically with the stone grinding process, you are getting the highest quality tea in its purest form outside of just having straight from the tea tree. It is simple and straightforward, leaving tea leaves with tons of flavor and amazing healthful qualities. White Tea has some wonderful qualities to help maintain good health. In essence, White Matcha contains those same qualities with a purer taste. The health benefits of White Matcha include: high antioxidant count to kill free radicals in the blood stream, reduces the risk of certain types of cancer, decreases fine lines and wrinkles in the skin, helps maintain a beautiful complexion, has only one percent (1%) caffeine content of coffee.
The directions suggested to scoop ½ to 1 rounded teaspoons into a tea bowl or cup. Add 2 to 3 oz. of per-boiling water to the bowl (~180F / ~80C). Boiling water may not be the most suitable for Matcha because it does not bring out the best flavor and the natural mild sweetness.
I have also tried it by adding it to my chamomile tea, oh my goodness it so tasty. I guess it is okay to mix it up a little bit. I am still getting matcha tea benefits.
The package is a bit small, but you are getting a quality product. I say this because, I have had green matcha for the same price and have received a larger package. I am not sure if white matcha is more expensive than green matcha. Either way, I really like Red Leaf White Matcha. Being an avid tea drinker, matcha tea is delicious.
