Rose helps regulate menstruation as well as stimulate digestion.
Rose Matcha is made organically with roses from Shangdong, home of the China Rose. The roses are slowly dried and ground to a fine powder crafted the same way you would craft green matcha. Shangdong’s history with rose cultivation dates back to the Tang Dynasty. The roots of our roses are deep.
Place approx. 4-5 scoops of rose matcha in your bowl. Then wet with 15 ml water of water that is heated to approx 70ºC (prevent very high heat as it increases bitterness and lowers medicinal properties) Thoroughly knead the mixture using a bamboo whisk until smooth paste forms. Add 70ml of heated milk of your choice and mix until consistent. It is safe/recommended to increase the amount of powder if more colour or flavour is desired. Add honey for enhancing the flavour of your rose matcha. For a cold brew, place in the fridge, wait until cooled or pour the mixture directly over ice cubes. Enjoy.
