Matcha tea ceremony 抹茶

Matcha tea ceremony 抹茶

Another innovation at the taku that Mirko Gaul has introduced after his culinary journey through Asia:

Our new Matcha tea ceremony is now available at taku. Directly prepared at your table! Matcha (jap.: „pulverised tea) consists of finest powder of crushed green tea which is used during the Japanese tea ceremony.  This sort of tea has an intense green colour and a mellow sweet flavor.

To produce round about 300 gramm of Matcha powder, the traditional granit mills need an hour. The way of preparatin of Matcha was probably developed in the 6th century in China. As used in the traditional East Asian medicine, the tea leaves are dried as medical plants and are milled afterwards.
This type of medicine was traditonally produced in Buddhist abbeys and mainly consumed there. Based on this tradition, the first tea ritual of the cen and chan Buddhists emerged. 

The taste of genuine matcha is called umami which symbolized the fifth sense of sense.
Get to know your own umami in a traditional tea ceremony happening at your table!

Opening hours

Tuesday to Saturday from 12.00am to 2.00pm and 6.30pm to 09.30pm.
