Smooth & rich Matcha with subtle floral notes and light Umami, suitable for everyday Usucha.
HANAE is our entry-level Ceremonial-Grade Matcha. It brews a refreshing liquor with a great balance of sweetness/light astringency and a pleasant silky mouthfeel.
A blend that holds enough delicacy to be whisked into a creamy and smooth Usucha (traditional Matcha Tea) while also being characterized by a rich body that allows it to be mixed into premium blended drinks - makes great Cold Brew Matcha too!
Flavour profile: Smooth, rich and earthy with subtle floral notes, light astringency and a refreshing finish of light Umami.
Storage: Seal package immediately after use and store in a cool dry place, away from sunlight, moisture, and strong odors.
For more specifications on all our grades please refer to our Grades Chart.
We recommend preparing this Matcha using our Chasen Bamboo Whisk for better aeration of the tea resulting in a creamy texture.
Packaging: Biophotonic glass, also known as Miron or Violet glass, is a type of deeply colored, almost opaque glass which naturally filters the spectrum of visible sunlight, only allowing through Infra-Red and UVA light, or ‘violet’ light. Because of its natural ability to block light, Biophotonic glass protects precious contents from perishing in sunlight, increasing their shelf life and effectiveness.
We recommend this Ceremonial grade for:
Usu-Cha (traditional hot Matcha tea):
Sift 2g of Matcha into a bowl
Wet with 20ml of 80°C water and knead into a paste using a Bamboo Whisk
Add more water (50ml) and briskly whisk back and forth until a fine layer of froth forms on the top.
Coldbrew Iced Matcha:
Sift 2g of Matcha into a shaker filled with 250ml of water
Add sweetness (optional) and shake well.
Place a few ice cubes into a glass and pour your Matcha over ice.
Enjoy your Coldbrew Iced Matcha
Premium Matcha Latte:
Sift 2-3g of Matcha into your mug (add sweetness if preferred)
Add 20ml of 80°C water and knead with your Bamboo Whisk until smooth
Steam your desired amount of milk (150-200ml) and pour it into the paste.
