Palais des Thés Matcha Imperial
Much ado about matcha.
Palais des Thés’ Matcha Imperial takes the caffeine-rich, powdered green tea’s earthy flavor to next-level dimensions. It’s made using tencha leaves, a prestigious shade-grown tea that, when deprived of light, develops uniquely vegetal, umami flavors. The leaves are then ground to a flour-like texture so you can enjoy it simply by whisking it into hot water. It’s delicious on its own or with milk, hot or iced.
