Another Christmas present I received, from my sister and brother-in-law, who know I like tea, and like green teas, is Japanese Do Matcha green tea. I don't have quite the proper tools to make authentic Matcha green tea, no whisk certainly, but you can make it using normal spoon and cup. Just mix 1/2 tsp to 1 tsp (depending on how strong you want it) with a small bit of hot water to make a paste, then add hot water to fill the cup, or as desired. Matcha green tea has a definite different flavour from Chinese green tea, for one the grinding of the leaves imparts a different flavour than whole leaf teas, also, the tea is a slightly different variety, grown in Japanese soil and weather (this one comes from Kyoto). This tea tastes pretty good, another good one to add to my already large rotation.
