Tasting Notes

Sweetness and umami in perfect balance - with notes of popcorn and cereal milk.

Equally good with whole or oat milk, served hot or cold. The natural sweetness of the green tea is intensified in the milk with a gentle, round and very comforting unami finish.

Quantity

Use 2g (2 scoops with a traditional bamboo Chashaku spoon) of matcha per 125ml of hot milk.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use milk below 83°C (181°F). Using milk above the scalding point will affect the "foaminess" of the product.

Time

Make a fine paste with 10ml of milk. Add the remaining milk and whisk vigorously in a M or W shape until a fine foam is created.

Cost Per Cup

76p per cup based on 2g of tea per 125ml of milk and 1 infusion.

This can also be enjoyed as an iced tea, using either milk or water.

We recommend whisking to a smooth paste with a little bit of your liquid first, and then topping up with the rest. Full extraction takes about 1 hour, use 3g per litre of liquid.

Wakohen Garden

He checks the tea every day to assess the amount of bugs that eat the pests that eat the leaf, against the amounts of pests that eat the leaves.

If the bugs that eat the pest out number the pests, then he just lets the ecosystem do its thing.

When the number of pests that eat the leaves is higher he uses the Hurricane King to clear the leaf.

The result is natural, sustainable and delicious tea.
