Matcha Preparation Guide

Sloane Tea's Premium Grade Organic Matcha is an extra fine, premium grade of organic Japanese green tea, stone ground into a super fine powder. 

Matcha is ideal for those of us looking for a healthier alternative to coffee every morning, without compromising on the energy boost. With matcha, unlike with other teas, you are consuming the actual tea leaves rather than just steeping them. This results in the detoxifying and energizing properties of the tea being amplified. Not only is matcha popular for its multitude of health benefits, but also for its versatility. While it is prepared differently than regular tea, it is just as versatile.
