Rishi Tea Organic Green Tea Matcha Super Green Description

  • Our Greenest Green, with Vibrantly Fresh Matcha & Deeply Sweet Sencha
  • USDA Organic
  • Non-GMO | Product of USA
  • Certified Kosher
  • Medium Caffeine Level

Matcha Super Green is an energizing and vibrant green tea made with pure Japanese  matcha  mixed  with  a  special  type  of  Japanese  tea  called  konacha. Konacha  is  made  from  the  flaky  leaves  and  tender  stems  that  are  sorted  out  during  the  sencha  and  gyokuro  process.  With  its  smaller  leaf  size,  konacha  delivers a rich and dewy flavor. You have probably tasted it before—it is the green tea of choice for sushi bars around the world. In just a quick two-minute infusion, Matcha Super Green yields a brilliant emerald green cup packed with umami-rich amino acids like L-theanine, which balances with caffeine to enhance mental clarity and create a long-lasting sense of focus.

Catch on to the Kombucha Craze: How to Make Your Own at Home

Kombucha, a bubbly, probiotic-packed beverage that’s become wildly popular in the past few years, is linked to many health benefits, from improving gut health to supporting immunity to boosting mood. While it’s easy to find at health food stores and online today, it’s fun and rewarding to make your own at home. All you need are a few ingredients – and a smidge of patience (the process can take up to two weeks – but believe us, it’s worth the wait!).

How to make kombucha

Prep 

To make kombucha, you’ll need to obtain a specific type of yeast known as a SCOBY which stands for symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast. A SCOBY will ferment a mixture of tea and sugar into the probiotic-rich beverage known as kombucha. You can find a SCOBY by using someone else’s kombucha or purcahse a SCOBY from a trustworthy source online.

What you'll need

1 SCOBY
1 gallon distilled water (chlorinated and treated water will harm the kombucha culture)
2 Tbsp. loose-leaf organic black or green tea
1 cup raw organic cane sugar (the SCOBY will “eat” most of the sugar for food which will reduce the total sugar content)

How to make it

1. In large pot, bring water to a boil, then turn off heat. Add sugar and stir to dissolve.

2. Using tea ball or large mesh bag, add tea leaves to hot sugar water. Remove pot from burner and let steep 1 to 2 hours (or to desired strength). Remove ball/bag and discard leaves.

3. In glass or ceramic fermentation vessel, pour tea. Add SCOBY (or one cup of starter liquid such as premade kombucha). Cover with clean cloth, secure with rubber band or string (this prevents dust, bugs, or other debris from getting inside and still allowing the culture to “breathe” for proper fermentation.)

4. Store vessel in cool, dark place with plenty of ventilation, such as a pantry on a top shelf. Let ferment for anywhere from 7 to 14 days. (Note: Due to the temperature fluctuations in many homes, you’ll need to check it during this time frame until it reaches a desired taste and consistency. The longer it ferments, the less sugar it will have and the more sour it will taste.)

5. When complete, carefully remove SCOBY and place in a small, clean glass bowl. Cover with 1 cup of the final kombucha liquid. This is your next starter batch!

6. Using a funnel, pour kombucha into bottles or keep it in pitcher in fridge to enjoy.
