Imperial Kotobuki Matcha from Amanprana is the Highest Quality Matcha.

Kotobuki means ‘long life’ and for connoisseurs a better quality than extra premium matcha.

For our tea, Amanprana consciously chooses for the best balance of quality, flavour and nutritional value. We follow Hippocrates’ principle ‘Let food be your medicine and your medicine your food.”

The organic tea from Amanprana is available in three varieties, namely Matcha (Japanese green tea), Rooibos and Earl Grey. The tea is made from the whole, the youngest and finest leaves of the Camelia sinensis from Japan (Matcha), the Aspalathus Linearis from South Africa (Rooibos), Darjeeling from first pick and Assam from first pick from India (Earl Grey). The veins are expertly removed and the leaves are slowly ground on granite mills into an ultrafine tea powder. This process only yields 40g per hour, while maintaining quality, flavour and nutritional value.

The ground leaves of these teas are powerful foods. The level of antioxidants, expressed in ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity), is extraordinarily high.

  1. Packed carefully in a black-violet glass jar to preserve the top quality for a long time.
  2. Only a small group of elite Japanese tea farmers are able to produce the high quality Kotobuki and its unique blend to the strictest standards of the Japanese Amanprana matcha sommelier.
  3. Kotobuki was the favourite meditation drink of the Samurais and is the highest quality tea presented during traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.
  4. Kotobuki is ground finely (40g per hour) with handmade granite mills.
  5. Kotobuki Matcha contains the most antioxidants of all matchas (168,500 orac units per 100g) and the highest content of catechins (12,200 mg / 100g).
  6. Kotobuki Matcha is not the same as green tea. Kotobuki Matcha contains 137 times more EGCG (an important catechin) than a green tea bag and at least 10 times more nutrients.

Recipes with Kotobuki Tea

Prepare the Kotobuki Matcha yourself by adding half a teaspoon Kotobuki Matcha to a matcha bowl and adding almost boiling water (80°C), until the bowl is filled halfway. With a handmade bamboo whisk, whisk the mixture until lump-free and smooth. Keep whisking until it becomes a soft foaming grass green drink.

Recognise Quality Matcha

Sold as cheaper matcha, but is not matcha. It's a bitter by-product of green tea.

Amanprana's Kotobuki Matcha has a fresh grass green colour. Ground ultrafine, balanced, with a chlorophyll-rich fragrance and a soft umami flavour.

The much sold pale green matcha. Cheaper, lesser quality and bitter. Contains less chlorophyll, antioxidants, catechins and EGCG.

Time in the Shade

Matcha is made from shaded green tea plants. The last 4 weeks before the harvest, large canvases cover the tea plants to influence the process of photosynthesis. Because the plants are exposed to less sunlight, they make more chlorophyll as a survival mechanism. Because chlorophyll is oxygen. As a result, the tea leaves become even greener, which leads to the deep bright green and chrolophyll-rich tea powder we love.

Recepten met Kotobuki thee

Bereid zelf Kotobuki Matcha. Doe een halve theelepel Kotobuki Matcha in een matcha kom en voeg bijna kokend water (80°C) toe, tot een halfgevulde kom. Met de handgemaakte bamboe klopper maak je de matcha-klontertjes los. Roer in acht-vorm, symbool van oneindigheid, of beweeg de klopper van links naar rechts (niet rondroeren). Mindfull blijven herhalen tot een zacht schuimende grasgroene drank ontstaat zonder één klontertje.
