First Flush Driftwood Matcha | 初摘漂流木抹茶

 Tasting notes: Woodsy, seaweed, deep umami
 Origin: Uji, Kyoto, Japan
 Cultivar: Uji-Hikari

 Oxidation: ⦿○○○○

Loved the world over for its extraordinary health benefits, vibrant green colour and characteristic umami flavour, matcha is a must-have addition to any tea enthusiast’s collection. Our First Flush Driftwood Matcha has a bright vegetal flavour, with unmistakable woodsy notes. We recommend whisking it in a bowl, traditional style, for a deeply satisfying and nutritious treat.

We named it “First Flush Driftwood Matcha” because it is made from the first harvest (first flush) of tender leaves newly opened after winter. Also, the flavour has a woodiness to it, as well as a seaweed and minerally edge—reminiscent of a piece of driftwood in the ocean. 

First Flush Driftwood Matcha is a premium green tea, packed to the brim with antioxidants, chlorophyll, vitamins, minerals and nutrients. It is also high in caffeine and theanine, which makes it at once energising and calming. 

Because it is ground into a fine powder, all those nutrients become water-soluble and are more quickly absorbed in the body.

Servings: 10 bowls of matcha per 20g tin

Whisking your own matcha in a bowl, traditional-style, adds a sense of ceremony and ritual to ordinary moments of life. The resulting brew is deeply satisfying and nutritious, and will leave you feeling energised, clear-headed and ready for a productive day.

1. Put 2g of sieved matcha powder in a clean, dry bowl
2. Add 60ml of 80°C water
3. Hold the whisk vertically with your first two fingers and thumb
4. Whisk vigorously in an M-shaped motion for at least 15 seconds
5. Hold the bowl with both hands to drink the matcha
Pro tip: Try adding a bit of water to make a paste first, before adding the rest. This may help get a thicker foam.
