Trivia time! What do Cha Cha and the Emperor of Japan share in common? Answer: Both source matcha from the same farm in Uji, Japan. The regal tea leaves are sun-bathed, shade-grown and stone-milled into fine matcha powder; ours is then blended with varietals from nearby farms to make the antioxidant and umami powerhouse exclusively available in our cafes. And now, your pantries.
Want a hot and healthy zing in every sip? Whisk powder in near-boiling water, pour over ice, finish with 6 oz. of almond milk. Bliss.
"Do I really need a bamboo whisk?!"
Dear Skeptic: Trust Japan's tea masters and centuries of wisdom—bamboo was born for this. Our bamboo whisk declumps and froths matcha powder better than metal or plastic, without imparting off flavors. You also look legit while doing it, we admit.
Tip: 20-30 seconds of whisking powder in near-boiling water will achieve a gorgeous pour of tea. It's all in the wrist.
