Matcha Green Tea 30g Beginner's Grade is perfect for, you guessed it, beginners.
It's price and flavour reflect perfectly the needs of the matcha virgin wanting to 'dip their toe' before they take the leap to ceremonial grade.
The difference between beginner's grade matcha and ceremonial grade matcha?
The only difference is the location on the tea bush from which the leaves are picked. Ceremonial grade matcha uses only the smallest, youngest leaves at the tip of the tea bush - giving it a highly refined, smooth flavour.
Whereas beginner's grade uses more mature leaves from further down the tea bush.
The difference in flavour is very subtle for those who haven't already developed a palate for matcha - hence why beginner's grade is so well-suited to matcha virgins.
Measure 1g of Vitalife Matcha (1 Quarter of a Teaspoon) and sift into a large mug. Add warm water and whisk until frothy. Store in a cool dry place.
