In the past decade, I have seen many tea trends become popular. About fifteen years ago, I had seen bubble tea take over my metro area (I live in Los Angeles) by storm and it still has a strong following today. Just recently, I have been seeing matcha green tea all over. Not just coffee shops selling it but now shops are beginning to incorporate it into food. At first it was in desserts but now it has taken on a new form in hamburger buns or even sauces!
The hardest part is choosing which type of matcha you want to try. You can always take advantage of our Matcha sampler. Try them all at once or try them one by one. Here are our matchas:
Japanese Izu Matcha: This is our most popular of our Tea Store Matchas. This blend is made with pure luxury sencha tea and Gyokuro leaves. It’s perfect for use during a Japanese tea
ceremony at home (for the perfect kit, click here: https://www.englishteastore.com/matcha-tea-starter-kit.html) This is the matcha to use if you want matcha flavor in nearly all of your food. This is not just for plain tea and lattes, but you can add matcha to your pancakes, incorporate into a cheesecake, or blend into a smoothie. It’s very versatile!
Peppermint Matcha: The same matcha but infused with cool peppermint!
Bengal Club Chai Matcha: Much like our chai teas, this amazing matcha is blended with fresh Malabar spices to give you a peppery and saucy finish.
Kenya White Rhino: This is a green and white tea blend grown all the way from Kenya, made with young tea leaves. Nice and powdery, it would give your food and drinks a wonderfully warm a mossy note of grass and and slight floral undertones of oolong. This is named after the Kenyan White Rhino although the White Rhino is technically gray!
Our tea samplers are 1 ounces each or you can choose 2 or 8 ounces. It’s always worth it to try just a little bit of everything.
If matcha follows the way of its friend bubble tea, it will have a good lasting impact on the tea world. If you add matcha into your favorite foods and drinks, let us know! We would love to hear about it and see the pictures!
