How to use:
Making a delicious cup of tea with loose leaf herbs is simple and easy. Brewing loose leaves is a traditional art with many different styles and varying items of tea brewing equipment on the market. There are one cup teaballs that can be filled with loose leaves, flowers, and barks and submerged straight into a boiling cup of hot water and then left to infuse. The rule of thumb with brewing loose leaves is to allow them to fully release their beneficial aromatic phyto-chemical content.
This process is lovingly called brewing and takes 5-10 minutes so a tea cosy is recommended if you are using a pot. When making a pot of tea it is advised that you use one teaspoon of loose leaf tea per person and one for the pot. Any true tea maker who truly appreciates the art would recommend heating the pot first, and of course when the tea is fully infused it is absolutely necessary that the drinker sits down and takes a minute to enjoy!

Indigo Herbs Organic Matcha Tea Powder is the highest Ceremonial grade Matcha. This means that only the very freshest young tips are used to make our Matcha. Grown in organic conditions in natural surroundings, In April our Matcha is then covered with a reed screen that restricts the amount of light the tea bushes receive. Over a period of time the leaves of Camellia sinensis fatten and stretch to the receive more sunlight. When conditions are optimal (around the beginning of May) the organic Matcha is harvested and strongly steamed to stop fermentation and retain colour and flavor. The leaves are then blown dry before being put into an oven called a Horio to release all the moisture. The finished product is called ‘Tencha’. The Tencha leaves are then sorted into grades ready to be stone ground into different grades of Matcha. Our Organic Matcha is the the very highest Ceremonial Grade! It is simply the best quality that can be bought.
