Tea time with matcha embodies traditional spirituality and meditative style, and in our modern times, this tea takes the form of lattes, noodles, and ice cream! But you can also enjoy the new tea from Bloom CoffeeWorks in Portland, while searching the isles of HEB.
Matcha is whole green leaves ground up to create a fine powder. Packed full of calming energy, the way the plants are grown and harvested is relatively unique. The process begins with the green tea plants being grown in the shade for roughly three weeks before they’re harvested. It’s due to this shaded growth that the plant grows more theanine (a constituent of green tea) as well as caffeine. The incredible benefits of matcha come from this combination of theanine and caffeine along with powerful antioxidants called catechins.
When used daily, matcha can help improve skin health, immunity, and metabolism, and can be enjoyed hot or cold. It has a pure and smooth taste with notes of sweet grass. Bloom uses only organic matcha, because tea leaves have no protection from harmful pesticides in chemical fertilizers that are used in conventional farming.
To drink this super tea, matcha is typically dissolved in either water or milk. Drink up and feel the tranquilizing comfort.
