Spec’s: Material: Glazed, coiled ceramic Size: 2.5”H, 4.2”Diameter Volume: Standard ceremonial bowl size Color: Black and white About Matcha Tea - Matcha is derived from shade grown tea leaves and stone ground into an ultra fine, green powder. The brilliant flavor of matcha is attributed to sweetness from naturally occurring sugars, savor from the amino acid L-theanine, and bitterness due to the antioxidant, catechin. This is the matcha tea info paragraph. It is the back of Marie’s handout but shortened. Health Benefits Naturally occurring antioxidants, polyphenols, EGCG, and L-theanine in matcha boost the immune system. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23072320) Naturally occurring antioxidants assist in reducing levels of triglycerides, cholesterol, and hepatic glucose content in diabetic individuals (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14518774) Naturally occurring L-theanine enhances alpha brain-wave activity, developing a calmer and more alert mind-state.

CERAMIC TPOT-Banko Tsubo -8oz
The charcoal Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot is a kyusu-style Japanese teapot, meaning its principle is to steep Japanese green teas, as they require cooler water temperatures (between 140º to 180º). The Ceramic 8 oz. Banko Tsubo Teapot features a slight shimmer, making this teapot as radiant as Japanese green tea. See paragraph below for information on the traditional Japanese steeping process. Spec’s: Material: Ceramic Size: 3.2”H, 3.2”Diameter Volume: 8 oz. Color: Charcoal About the traditional Japanese steeping process: Water is boiled in a tetsubin, then transferred to a yuzamashi, which decreases the temperature of the water by 15º to 20º (185º-190º). The water is then poured into a kyusu, dropping the temperature by another 15º to 20º (165º-175º), at which point the water is primed to steep quality Japanese green teas.
