This is the Matcha we use at the moment for the Cha No Yu at the Ecole du Thé.
It is a very high quality Matcha from Uji, selected by the Urasenke school, one of two Japanese tea schools. The Seijo No Shiro Matcha stands out from other Matchas with its more delicate, planty flavour that lingers longer on the palate: a real joy!
It is an outstanding quality usucha type (light tea) to offer to true tea connoisseurs and Cha No Yu practitioners.
Suggestion of preparation
- This ceremonial tea can also be prepared in a less elaborate manner as an everyday drink for pleasure (though it does require a Matcha whisk).
- Place a teaspoonful of Matcha in a large, dry bowl, pour over 150 ml (5 fl oz) of simmering water and beat with the whisk, briskly, to a thoroughly emulsified froth.
Grands Crus: savour the exceptional
Rare and ephemeral, teas identified as Grands Crus by Palais des Thés are the result of alchemy between a tea plant variety, its terroir and the talent of an artisan grower. Meticulously plucked, processed and sourced in the most respected tea gardens, our Grands Crus unveil unique flavours that reflect the refinement of their origins.
