Drink of the Week: Mountain Rose Matcha

mountain rose matchaA finely powdered green tea tied to traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, matcha can seem peculiar to the uninitiated. But today’s Drink of the Week, Mountain Rose Matcha, is the perfect way to get introduced. Made from organically grown young green tea leaves and ground into a smooth, talc-like powder, Mountain Rose’s matcha is more sweet than savory and not overly grassy (as can be the case with many versions). Instead, there’s a creaminess to counterbalance the underlying earthiness. And for more matchas we love, check out our Jan/Feb 2016 issue. Head to mountainroseherbs.com to purchase.
