  • Details

    The Kenya White Rhino Matcha from English Tea Store is a smooth, crisp, and flavory green and white tea blend.

    Despite what the name would imply, the Majestic White Rhino is actually grey. The name White Rhino is believed to have originated from an English mispronunciation of the Dutch word wijd, meaning wide, which is how the Rhino was known by the earlier Dutch settlers of South Africa – and wide this magnificent beast is. The White Rhino is one of the world's last remaining Megafauna, species left over from a bygone era when giant land mammals roamed most of the earth. These days, with an estimated population of about 17,500 animals, the White Rhino roams the woodlands and grasslands of South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Uganda and Kenya. In the Kenyan Rift Valley, the origin of this stunning tea, it isn't uncommon to see White Rhinos grazing on lands near the lush tea estates, a testament to the biodiversity of this remarkable territory.

    The tea used to make this innovative Kenyan tea is grown at an high altitude under the bright sun and as such is packed full of antioxidants, polyphenols and exceptionally crisp flavor. Only the youngest leaves are plucked, processed and carefully ground using a traditional stone mill to an exceptionally smooth consistency. The resulting cup is thick and rich with wonderfully warm mossy notes of grass and slight floral undertones of oolong.

    Hot tea brewing method: Bring filtered or freshly drawn water to a rolling boil and let cool to roughly 180 F/82 C. Place approximately of a teaspoon of Matcha in your cup. Infuse with 8 ounces/250 milliliter of water, whisk briskly and enjoy.


    Ceremonial Matcha: Please note that in order to brew Ceremonial Matcha you will need a set of Japanese tea ceremony tools. (Bowls, scoops, and a whisk).



    • Prepare tea bowls by warming them with boiled water

    • Prepare your Matcha whisk by soaking the tip in the boiled water in one of the bowls for about 10 seconds

    • Pour the water out and dry the bowl with a paper towel

    • Using your teaspoon, add 2 scoops of Matcha to each bowl

    • Pour 1/3 of a cup of your hot water into each bowl

    • In a slow-motion, submerge any loose bits of Matcha that may be floating on the surface of the tea

    • Whisk the tea more briskly in a back and forth motion until the surface of the Matcha becomes frothy

    • Consume immediately. (In Japan, it is customary to drink the entire bowl in 3 quick slurps)

    Caffeine content: Low - This tea contains natural caffeine found in the L. Camellia Sinensis family. A cup of green tea steeped in boiled water for 5 minutes will contain between 22 to 29 milligrams of caffeine. An equal sized cup of coffee will contain between 80 – 100 milligrams of caffeine. Caffeine quickly becomes soluble in very hot water. If you wish to reduce the caffeine level in this tea, briefly rinsing the tea leaves in extremely hot water will reduce the caffeine content between 25-50% with only a minor effect on taste.

    Antioxidant Content: Super High - When consuming matcha you actually consume all the tea leaves. Scientific testing in Japan has indicated that on account of this fact the antioxidant benefit of matcha can be up to 5-9 greater then with normal green tea consumed in the conventional manner. Matcha made from high altitude teas such as Kenya green tea or Kenya white tea, have some of the highest antioxidant levels recorded for tea - considerably more than Japan
    green tea.
