Is Your Matcha up to Par?

Is Your Matcha up to Par?

Believe it or not, there’s good, bad, and even fake matcha…

But when added with sugar, milk, and whisked into a green perfection, how do you know if your cup is up to par?

From leaf to latte, the best matcha powder is recognised by its colour, texture, and of course, flavour. 

 

 

  1. Good matcha is bright green

This vivid, distinctive colour indicates that only the youngest leaves were harvested.

To fully harness all the skin, mood, and energy-boosting benefits of matcha, the age of the leaf matters – the younger they are, the more antioxidants, amino acids, and chlorophyll they pack. 

 

  1. Good matcha is silky to the touch

No rough grit, grain, or granules. This premium grade of matcha is stone-ground to be as fine as talc, blending and frothing effortlessly with water or milk.

If you dip your finger in the powder, and can stroke a long, straight line, you are in for a true Japanese matcha experience. 

 

  1. Good matcha is good on its own

Earthy, velvety, with an addictive bittersweet undertone.

While matcha is known for its full-bodied umami flavour, the first sip is a telltale test of the powder’s quality – the sooner the harvest, the smoother, sweeter, and finer the taste. 

 

If we were to brag, the grass is definitely greener at Crafti.

Whether you love a refreshing usucha every morning or tend to crave a rich, creamy latte from time to time, our Ceremonial Uji Matcha Powder is quite literally your perfect matcha.
