If you love Ceremonial grade Matcha and also adore Chai Tea, then you will be utterly elated by Mandy Aftel's brilliant interpretation of their marriage.
To make matcha: add a half-teaspoon of matcha powder to a teacup or bowl of boiling-hot water and whisk or stir rapidly until the green powder is totally dissolved with a bit of foam on the top. It is normal for a bit of the powder to remain in the bottom of your cup.
For those who adhere to traditional methods of Chai drinking- I added some milk.
I personally prefer the flavor unaccompanied by anything other than the tea itself because it is so uncompromisingly high in quality that I think something is lost if anything is added to it since it is itself perfection incarnate. Try it both ways and you will see just what I mean. This is the perfect elixir for the soul as the weather cools down, but I believe that this treasure should be enjoyed all year long. Aftelier Perfumes Organic Matcha Chai Tea is nothing short of extraordinary, but that is true of everything that Mandy makes!
*This was a gift sent for my use, but it was too extraordinary not to share with you!
