The incredible floral taste of NEW Matcha Earl Grey 100% natural flower petals.

Advantage: Delicious, Contains no caffeine, Relaxing effect

Essential accessory for the preparation : Milk Frother (5,90 €) 🌪☺️

This brand new, exclusive blend from Matcha Botanicals is made from 100% flower petals, including the flowers of the Butterfly Pea shrubs that give it its vibrant colour. The petals are ground using the same method as traditional Japanese green tea Matcha.

Unlike a simple infusion of Butterfly Pea flowers, also known as Anchan, the beneficial nutritional elements contained in the ground flowers of Blue Matcha are released and allowed to enter your body. This tea generally gives a relaxing feeling of calmness that is especially appreciated in the evening after a stressful day.

The Blue Matcha has many assets that will seduce you, but notably, the zinc present in the petals of the flowers contributes:

  • the maintenance of normal hair and nails
  • the maintenance of a normal skin
  • as well as to protect cells against oxidative stress

Aesthetic component: Blue Matcha is obviously an excellent natural colouring agent, it will be perfect for your drinks or your culinary preparations. When you add lemon to the matcha the colour changes from azure blue to dark purple!

Our Blue Matcha contains no tea, no artificial colouring, and no other additives.

Ingredients: Clitoria ternatea (Butterfly Pea) flowers, Citrus Bergamia flowers, Natural Bergamot flavour.

Grown in Thailand


 
How to prepare your Blue Matcha Premium Extra-Fresh?

We recommend to prepare this Matcha in "Latte", thanks to our milk frother which will give you an easy, quick and delicious preparation. We do not recommend the traditional preparation with water, which removes its sweetness! 😊

In particular, we recommend the oat, almond, and coconut 🥥 milks (In that order of preference)

  • You will need 2g of matcha (half a "teaspoon-full" 🥄). Place the powder in a Mug type cup
  • Gradually add 200ml of regular or vegetable milk, beating with the milk frother.
  • Enjoy the light floral flavor 🦋 A little honey enhances the flavors!
  • To change the color of the tea to purple, add a drop of lemon juice!

💙 + 🍋 💜

Use it in your smoothie-bowls: banana, coco-flakes, blueberries! 💖

    How to choose your matcha?

    There are 3 clues by which you can easily determine the quality of a matcha: 

    • The colour : must be bright and lively. If the matcha has an emerald green color it means that it has been stored and transported with care, without contact with oxygen and daylight, so the tea has retained all of its properties. If the matcha has a dark or dirty yellow color it means that it is simply not pure matcha or that it has lost its properties due to interaction with oxygen or sunlight. For this reason, after purchase never pour matcha into a transparent jar and store it in a dry and dark place.

    • The perfume : it must be pleasant, soft and at the same time saturated. If matcha smells like dry hay with hints of bitterness / seaweed (fish) or jasmine (like Chinese green and white teas), then this variety has nothing to do with real matcha or it has lost its properties during processing or storage.
    • Taste : The taste of a good matcha is sweet, light. It certainly shouldn't taste like fish or seaweed! The taste of matcha depends greatly on the variety and the season when it is harvested. The May harvest has a deeper, rich taste and sweet aroma, and respectively, contains the highest amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll. Harvested later than July, matcha may have bitterness and it contains fewer vitamins and minerals than in the early varieties.

    Delivery :

    • Free delivery for orders over 69 Euros / CHF.

    • Shipped in 1 working day, delivery in 48-72 hours in Europe.

    • We only ship matcha freshly ground, guaranteeing the best quality, and work just in time with Japan. So when demand is high, it may be possible to wait 2-3 more days for the next delivery from Kyoto, as we are not shipping second grade matcha. We will contact you by phone or email if necessary.

    Our tea is 100% guaranteed, we have absolute confidence in the quality of the products we offer you. Matcha Botanicals is a team of passionate people who have nothing in mind to sell products that we are proud of. These are varieties carefully selected, developed and studied by our producers and with our tea master. The cultivation and manufacturing process is the subject of our full attention, because we are the first consumers of our products, and constantly in search of the best. 💯

    As specialists in traditional Japanese Matcha, we exclusively distribute Matcha from equally passionate family farms, all members of the Japan Tea Association, and all producing traditional Japanese Matcha since the 18th century.

    Their production methods are on quality standards much higher than that of the "BIO" standards, a simple comparison with a single cup between a "BIO" commercial matcha and those from the plantations that we offer is eloquent!

    For our producers, it does not make sense to pay dearly for an ORGANIC label which would guarantee a lower quality than the real quality of their products, while increasing their costs. The production is analyzed regularly to guarantee its quality as strictly as a traditional Organic Matcha. 🌳

    Once harvested, the leaves are washed and steamed to freeze their aromas. The steam forms a protective film around the leaf, which allows it to retain its properties. They are then dried in hot air in large nets, and stored. 

    Less than 30 days before landing in your cup, the leaves are ground, then shipped by boat and train 🚞 to Europe, guaranteeing unparalleled freshness and an exemplary carbon footprint 🌈. 
    By the way, cultivating a tea plant is like planting a young tree every 5 years.

      How to prepare a Matcha?

      Simple, with water

      The traditional preparation, also known as "Ceremonial", is best with green tea Matchas:

      • Sift in a bowl 2 g of matcha through a sieve or a colander (2 g = 1/2 teaspoon) in a bowl

      • Pour a few drops of cold water

      • With the bamboo whisk, dissolve the matcha into a fine and homogeneous paste by making circular movements against the turn of the bowl.

      • Pour 150 ml of hot water at approximately 75 ° in the preparation, beating in a straight line with the whisk, so as to form a nice foam.

      • Enjoy the invigorating taste and creamy texture of your matcha!

      Matcha Latte

      • Prepare a matcha "base" by following the first three points of the ceremonial matcha recipe

      • Heat 150 ml of milk and whip it with a milk frother (excellent with oat, almond or coconut milk) 

      • If you prefer sweet drinks, add honey or sugar to hot milk. 

      • Pour the milk and the foam into your matcha tea, continuing to whisk everything together using the milk frother.

      • If you want a cold drink, do not heat the milk. You can also add ice cubes.

      Matcha bowl

      For two people :

      • Mix the frozen bananas with 100 ml of coconut milk until a smooth consistency is obtained.

      • Add 4 g of matcha powder to the blender

      • Transfer the smoothies to bowls and decorate them with granola, seasonal berries / fruits, nuts or chocolate

      • Your quick and healthy breakfast is ready!
