Japanese Kato Matcha Usucha Recipe from Toronto Canada Wholesale Tea Retailers Genuine Tea

Matcha Usucha

Matcha has been consumed in Japan for a thousand years for its medicinal benefits and for its use in the traditional tea ceremony, Cha Dao. There are two main ways to prepare a traditional Ceremonial Matcha. One is called Koicha which is rather thick and heavy and the other is Usucha which is lighter and more frothy. If you find these styles of drinking Matcha too strong, try adding a dash of Coconut Milk to balance the flavour.
