Empress Rose Matcha
PURE GROUND ROSE POWDER 30g
It is for good reason Rose has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) for centuries. We are very excited to introduce you to our beloved rose matcha powder and share with you all the beautiful benefits she offers. She is truly a booster with so many benefits both physically and spiritually.
In TMC, rose petals and their medicine help to move and open a heart which has tightened emotionally and spiritually. In China, the heart is believed to be a physical organ and the seat of consciousness. TCM uses the term shen, to describe this spirit. TCM teaches that rose has a powerful effect on the spiritual state of one's heart. So drinking rose tea helps boost your shen and your overall well being.
This is a stronger medicine than the usual Rose Tea, where you seep Rose buds in water. When drinking Rose Matcha you are taking in the whole rose that has been ground to fine powder. So naturally you are taking in more of the benefits.
A perfect nervine, great for uplifting the mood and a natural depression fighter, rose also has antispamodic, aphrodisiac and sedative qualities, as well as being anti-inflammatory which aids to healthy-looking, clear skin. Rose helps regulate menstruation as well as stimulate digestion.
Our Empress Bengale Beauty Rose Matcha is made orgnanically with roses form Shangdong, home of the China Rose. The roses are then ground to fine powder in Fujian, crafted exact same way as our Green Matcha. Shangdong's history with rose cultivate dates back to the Tang Dynasty. The roots of our roses are deep and rich.
Place approx. 4-5 scoops of rose matcha in your bowl. Then wet with 15ml of water that is heated to approx. 70°C (prevent very high heat as it increase bitterness and lowers medicinal properties). Thoroughly knead mixture using bamboo whisk until smooth paste forms. Add 70ml 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. Adding honey is great for enhancing the flavour in your rose matcha. For a cold brew, place in fridge, wait until cooled or pour the mixture directly over ice cubes. Enjoy!
Please note, this is natural ground rose, no coloring or flavour has been added, so please don't expect your matcha latte to turn pink and sweet/sugary. When pure rose powder is used to matcha latte, the colour will turn out very light. If you desire the kind of vibrant pink colour that is seen on the internet and in cafes, we recommend you purchase Organic Pink Latte Powder (which they use) with your Rose Matcha. This option is available when you make a selection for purchase.
