An incredibly rich and mellow taste for true gourmets

Yumeno is made from a valuable heirloom variety that delivers an omnipresent, yet incredibly smooth, rich flavor. Extremely fine ground, its significant air retention gives a velvet texture. Its delicate bouquet carries the aromas of the first greens springtime. It ranks among the greatest Japanese matchas.

Tasted by the Japanese aristocracy, it is produced on small, exceptional plots, using slow methods that only allow very limited production.

Made in Japan, Uji, Kyoto Prefecture. 

Weight: 40 grams

Be careful when transporting an open jar! We advise you to put it very carefully in your bag / suitcase so as not to shake the matcha powder inside the jar. Otherwise, it is likely that the powder will fall into the area between the jar and the lid, then when opening the powder may escape, which would be particularly unfortunate. 

How to prepare it?

  • For a "Koïcha" matcha, that is to say strong, creamy, you will need 4g of matcha. Place the powder in a clean "Chawan" bowl and dry, then add the same amount of water as matcha, a few drops is enough. Brush the matcha and the water with your whisk in order to break up the lumps and obtain a thick paste. Then add 50ml of water heated to 70 degrees and continue to beat with your bamboo whisk until the creation of a fine and delicate foam. It is advisable to beat from left to right in a perfectly straight and very energetic way, and not with circular movements.

  • For Usucha (regular matcha) you will need 2 grams of matcha and 150 ml of water. The procedure is the same as for the Koïcha.

  • To get water at exactly 70 degrees, mix some cold water with boiling water: 1 part cold water with 2 parts boiling water should give you the perfect temperature.

    The water temperature should not exceed 80 degrees, otherwise the matcha will develop more bitterness. Its precious nutrients and subtle taste should not be cooked!

How to choose your matcha?

There are 3 clues by which you can easily determine the quality of a matcha: 

  • The colour : must be bright and lively. If the matcha has an emerald green color it means that it has been stored and transported with care, without contact with oxygen and daylight, so the tea has retained all of its properties. If the matcha has a dark or dirty yellow color it means that it is simply not pure matcha or that it has lost its properties due to interaction with oxygen or sunlight. For this reason, after purchase never pour matcha into a transparent jar and store it in a dry, dark place.

  • The perfume : it must be pleasant, soft and at the same time saturated. If matcha smells like dry hay with hints of bitterness / seaweed (fish) or jasmine (like Chinese green and white teas), then this variety has nothing to do with real matcha or it has lost its properties during processing or storage.
  • Taste : The taste of a good matcha is sweet, light. It certainly shouldn't taste like fish or seaweed! The taste of matcha depends greatly on the variety and the season when it is harvested. The May harvest has a deeper, rich taste and sweet aroma and, respectively, contains the greatest amount of antioxidants and chlorophyll. Harvested later than July, matcha can have bitterness and it contains fewer vitamins and minerals than the early varieties.

      Umami : Complet, moelleux.

      Texture : "Creamy-cloudy" (taille des particules <20µm)

      Couleur : Emerald Green


      Vous n'aurez jamais besoin de lait: la douceur inégalée du Matcha Imperial Grade est telle qu'il convient particulièrement bien à une préparation à base d'eau. 
      Son profil aromatique très subtil est le mieux perçu par les récepteurs au centre et à l'arrière de votre langue. Les notes umami, sa rondeur et sa fraîcheur végétale y seront parfaitement restituées, souvenez-vous que lorsque vous le goûtez 😊.

      • Pour un "Usucha" matcha, c'est-à-dire le plus courant, vous aurez besoin de 2 g de matcha (une demi-cuillère pleine). Mettez la poudre dans un bol propre et sec et ajoutez la même quantité d'eau que la quantité de matcha : quelques gouttes suffiront. À l'aide du fouet en bambou, balayez le matcha et l'eau en mouvements circulaires le long des côtés du bol pour briser les grumeaux et créer une crème épaisse. Vous pouvez déjà utiliser les arômes à base de plantes qui sont diffusés à ce stade 🤤. Ajoutez ensuite 150 ml d'eau à 70 degrés et continuez à fouetter avec le fouet en bambou jusqu'à obtenir une mousse fine et délicate. Pour cette étape, il est conseillé de fouetter de gauche à droite très droit et très vigoureusement, plutôt que d'utiliser des mouvements circulaires.
      • Pour un koïcha (matcha fort et crémeux), vous aurez besoin de 4 grammes de matcha et de 50 ml d'eau. La procédure est la même que pour l'usucha.
      • Pour obtenir de l'eau à exactement 70 degrés 💦 mélangez un peu d'eau froide avec de l'eau bouillante : 1 partie d'eau froide avec 2 parties d'eau bouillante devrait vous donner la température parfaite.
      • La température de l'eau ne doit pas dépasser 80 degrés, sinon le matcha développera de l'amertume. Vous ne devez pas faire bouillir ses précieux nutriments et sa saveur délicate !
      Attention au transport d'un bocal ouvert ! Nous vous conseillons de le mettre dans votre sac / valise avec beaucoup de précaution afin de ne pas agiter la poudre de matcha à l'intérieur du bocal. Sinon, il est probable que la poudre tombera dans la zone située entre le bocal et le couvercle, puis lorsque vous ouvrirez le bocal, la poudre pourrait se répandre, ce qui serait particulièrement regrettable.

      Our tea is 100% guaranteed, we have absolute confidence in the quality of the products we offer you. Matcha Botanicals is a team of passionate people who have nothing in mind to sell products that we are proud of. These are varieties carefully selected, developed and studied by our producers and with our tea master. The cultivation and manufacturing process is the subject of our full attention, because we are the first consumers of our products, and constantly in search of the best. 💯

      As specialists in traditional Japanese Matcha, we exclusively distribute Matcha from equally passionate family farms, all members of the Japan Tea Association, and all producing traditional Japanese Matcha since the 18th century.

      Their production methods are on quality standards much higher than that of the "BIO" standards, a simple comparison with a single cup between a "BIO" commercial matcha and those from the plantations that we offer is eloquent!

      For our producers, it does not make sense to pay dearly for an ORGANIC label which would guarantee a lower quality than the real quality of their products, while increasing their costs. The production is analyzed regularly to guarantee its quality as strictly as a traditional Organic Matcha. 🌳

      Once harvested, the leaves are washed and steamed to freeze their aromas. The steam forms a protective film around the leaf, which allows it to retain its properties. They are then dried in hot air in large nets, and stored. 

      Less than 30 days before landing in your cup, the leaves are ground, then shipped by boat and train 🚞 to Europe, guaranteeing unparalleled freshness and an exemplary carbon footprint 🌈. 
      By the way, cultivating a tea plant is like planting a young tree every 5 years.

      Une merveille

      Après avoir essayé les autres thés de la gamme Matcha Botanicals, y compris celui de cérémonie, celui-ci apparaît une pure merveille. La mousse est éclatante, le goût sans une once d'amertume, les arômes herbeux légers et surtout la légèreté de la mousse est totalement bluffante! Rien à voir avec les autres matcha... Bref fabuleux sur tous les plans sauf hélas ...le portefeuille!

      How to prepare a Matcha?

      Simple, with water

      The traditional preparation, also known as "Ceremonial", is best with green tea Matchas:

      • Sift in a bowl 2 g of matcha through a sieve or a colander (2 g = 1/2 teaspoon) in a bowl

      • Pour a few drops of cold water

      • With the bamboo whisk, dissolve the matcha into a fine and homogeneous paste by making circular movements against the turn of the bowl.

      • Pour 150 ml of hot water at approximately 75 ° in the preparation, beating in a straight line with the whisk, so as to form a nice foam.

      • Enjoy the invigorating taste and creamy texture of your matcha!

      Matcha Latte

      • Prepare a matcha "base" by following the first three points of the ceremonial matcha recipe

      • Heat 150 ml of milk and whip it with a milk frother (excellent with oat, almond or coconut milk) 

      • If you prefer sweet drinks, add honey or sugar to hot milk. 

      • Pour the milk and the foam into your matcha tea, continuing to whisk everything together using the milk frother.

      • If you want a cold drink, do not heat the milk. You can also add ice cubes.

      Matcha bowl

      For two people : 

      • Pre-freeze 3 bananas, peeled and cut into pieces

      • Mix the frozen bananas with 100 ml of coconut milk until a smooth consistency is obtained.

      • Add 4 g of matcha powder to the blender

      • Transfer the smoothies to bowls and decorate them with granola, seasonal berries / fruits, nuts or chocolate

      • Your quick and healthy breakfast is ready!
