What is Ceremonial Grade Matcha?

Ceremonial grade matcha is the crème de la creme of green tea. It is a vivid green powder that is finely ground and made from tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) grown in the shade. Since the first harvest is the youngest and most tender, and the higher chlorophyll concentration also gives the leaves a deeper and more vibrant color, ceremonial grade matcha powder is the highest grade matcha green tea made from tea leaves grown on organic farms. 

The finest tea leaves are used to make our ceremonial-grade Matcha, which has a smooth, creamy texture and a rich, umami flavor. Ceremonial grade matcha, which is typically made during Japanese tea ceremonies, is meant to be enjoyed on its own, unlike other grades.

To ensure you experience the epitome of ceremonial grade matcha, Leigh Leaf adheres to the highest standards of quality and authenticity, making us your top choice for acquiring this extraordinary tea.

How to Use Ceremonial-Grade Organic Matcha

To prepare a traditional ceremonial matcha, take 1 teaspoon of Leigh Leaf's proper grade organic matcha green tea powder, renowned for its exceptional quality, and place it into a 5oz cup of hot water heated to approximately 160 degrees Fahrenheit. Utilizing a bamboo matcha whisk, slowly add the hot water while continuing to whisk diligently. Keep whisking until the tea becomes well-aerated, achieving a silky, fine texture with a delightful creamy foam forming on the surface. Your matcha tea is now impeccably prepared and ready to be served, providing a moment of pure enjoyment.

Should you desire a matcha latte, introduce milk or opt for our dedicated latte-grade Matcha and combine it with your preferred milk or milk substitute choice. For culinary applications such as cooking or baking, we recommend utilizing our culinary-grade matcha powder to achieve the finest results and the most delectable flavor in your culinary creations.

For a unique twist, you can also explore matcha latte recipes or incorporate Matcha into various culinary creations. Whether you want to enhance your rituals or cooking skills with matcha powder ceremonial, the possibilities are endless!

How to Prepare High-Quality Ceremonial Matcha

The Japanese tea ceremony, known for its sincerity and love for green tea, is a revered tradition. When selecting ceremony grade Matcha green tea, look for a vibrant jade green color, which is a result of the shade-growing process preserving chlorophyll. The texture is another indicator, with high-quality Matcha feeling fine to the touch.

To Prepare Matcha:

  1. Boil about 100ml of soft water until it reaches 100 degrees C.
  1. Measure and sift 2 grams of Matcha into a tea bowl.
  1. Pour 50ml of hot water into the bowl, avoiding excess water.
  1. To make a frothy layer, quickly whisk the Matcha in a "W" or "M" motion.
  1. Add another 50ml of hot water based on preference.
  1. Enjoy the aromas and the "Chado" or "path of the tea" as you drink mindfully, reflecting on the present moment. Indulge in the rich aroma of ceremonial matcha tea, sourced from the finest organic ingredients.

What is the Difference Between Culinary and Ceremonial Grade Matcha?

Ceremonial grade matcha is sourced from the earliest spring harvest, featuring the sweetest, tenderest, and greenest leaves grown under shade. Its delicate flavor and high production costs make it unsuitable for baking, cooking, or mixing with other ingredients. Ceremonial Matcha is exclusively meant for pure and simple enjoyment through traditional preparation, typically using a bamboo whisk, ceramic bowl, and bamboo spoon. To make it, you mix matcha powder with hot water to create a thick, frothy drink.

In contrast, culinary-grade Matcha is harvested later in the summer, allowing more sunlight to influence the tea's flavor. This leads to a more bitter taste than ceremonial Matcha, making it ideal for recipes like lattes, where the flavor can shine through. As the harvests progress, the bitterness increases, with the fourth harvest of organic matcha being best suited for cooking, baking, and smoothies. Each grade has its distinct uses, and one is not superior to the other; they serve different culinary purposes.

What is Ceremonial Grade Matcha Used For?

Ceremonial grade matcha is derived from the earliest spring harvest, using the sweetest and tenderest leaves grown under shade. It differs from culinary-grade Matcha as it is not intended for baking, cooking, or garnishing due to its delicate flavor, which other ingredients can overshadow.

How Do You Make Ceremonial Matcha Taste Good?

Ceremonial-grade Matcha is known for its distinct and delightful flavor, but there's always room for personalization to make your matcha experience even more enjoyable. Savor the authentic taste of matcha ceremonial tea, meticulously crafted for your enjoyment. Whether you're a seasoned matcha enthusiast or new to this ancient beverage, here are some tips and tricks to elevate the taste of your ceremonial Matcha.

1. Sweeteners: While Ceremonial Grade Matcha is traditionally enjoyed without sweeteners to savor its natural flavor, some individuals prefer a touch of sweetness. If you want a sweeter note in your Matcha, add a small amount of honey, maple syrup, or agave nectar. Remember that preserving the harmony between the tea's natural sweetness and flavor requires moderation.

2. Making Matcha Lattes: If you enjoy creamy textures and a mellower flavor profile, consider transforming your ceremonial Matcha into a matcha latte. You need to blend it with the milk of your choice, plant-based or dairy. This not only adds a velvety texture but also allows you to experiment with various milk flavors, such as almond, oat, or coconut. For an additional level of complexity, you can even mix in a small amount of cocoa or cinnamon. Matcha lattes offer a cozy and comforting way to savor this exquisite tea.

By looking into these possibilities, you can customize your ceremonial Matcha to your tastes and make it a unique experience that pleases your palate.

What Is the Difference Between Ceremonial Grade Matcha and Regular Matcha?

The distinction between ceremonial Matcha and regular Matcha lies in their quality, flavor, and purpose. Ceremonial Matcha is of the highest quality and intended for traditional tea ceremonies, while regular Matcha is more versatile and suitable for various culinary uses. The finest, tiniest shade-grown leaves from the very tip of the tea bush are used to make ceremonial grade Matcha, which gives it a highly vivid green color and a somewhat sweet, smooth flavor. Simple Matcha is less expensive, has a hint of bitterness, and is mainly used in cooking.

Is Ceremonial Matcha Healthier?

Yes, it can be considered healthier. Matcha of ceremonial quality is cultivated in the shade, which maintains its chlorophyll content and the amino acid L-theanine, which is linked to improved mood, focus, and concentration. It also contains a substantial amount of EGCG, a potent antioxidant catechin that offers protection against oxidative damage, aids in reducing inflammation, supports weight loss, and is under study for various other health benefits. Additionally, ceremonial Matcha is renowned for its exceptionally fine texture and pure, delicate flavor.

Matcha of ceremonial grade has been shown to promote energy, burn fat, enhance brain stimulation, improve focus and concentration, and induce a relaxed, well-being feeling. It makes use of antioxidants' anti-inflammatory properties and the purifying properties of chlorophyll. Matcha of ceremonial quality contains minimal calories, less than one gram of carbs, a trace amount of protein, and vital nutrients like iron, vitamins C and A. Compared to culinary grades, ceremonial grade matcha tends to have higher levels of chlorophyll, EGCG, catechins, and L-theanine, making it a popular choice among health-conscious individuals.

What Are the Side Effects of Ceremonial Grade Matcha?

Excessive consumption of Matcha powdered green tea, typically exceeding eight grams or the equivalent of eight prepared cups of Matcha, may lead to adverse side effects. These potential negative consequences can include headaches, stomach discomfort, sleep disturbances, irritability, diarrhea, constipation, and heartburn. It's important to enjoy Matcha in moderation to avoid these unwanted effects.

What is the Difference Between Matcha and Ceremonial Matcha?

There are two primary grades of Matcha: ceremonial Matcha and culinary Matcha. Ceremonial Matcha, akin to fine wine, offers a delicate and prized flavor profile, making it ideal for traditional tea ceremonies or when brewed simply with water or a small amount of milk. Using ceremonial grade matcha in cooking would be akin to adding an expensive fine wine to a pasta sauce, where the subtle flavors would be lost, and it wouldn't be cost-effective.

On the other hand, culinary Matcha has a more robust and bitter taste, comparable to cooking wine. Drinking culinary Matcha on its own may not be pleasant, but it shines when used in recipes. Similar to how cooking wine enhances the flavors of a dish, culinary Matcha intensifies when incorporated into recipes, making it a suitable choice for matcha-based beverages like lattes, smoothies, and desserts such as ice cream and chocolates, where its flavor can complement and stand out alongside other ingredients.

However, if you consider yourself a chef and would like to dabble with the subtle nuances of ceremonial green tea matcha, feel free to do so. Discover the unmatched purity of matcha green tea ceremonial grade, at Leigh Leaf and you will see the differences.

What Color is Ceremonial Grade Matcha?
