Characteristics of Maru Cha Cha
* It’s gluten-free (Not flour, but rice flour is used.)

* The flavor of “dark brown”, it’s biggest, utilized cooking is fine for the mouth putting.
The Tea Ceremony
The tea ceremony reflects a way of life that values awareness of the changing seasons and the pursuit of esthetic ideals in food preparation and hospitality. It is an elegant ceremony steeped in Japanese tradition through which the host (the sponsor of the tea gathering) and guest share in the subtle emotions of the exchange as the tea is prepared and received.
Powdered green tea, or matcha, is made from young tea leaves ground in a stone mill and can be enjoyed in either its thick (koicha) or thin (usucha) variations. Koicha, with its richer flavor, is usually made with higher quality matcha than usucha and allows one to taste the inherent sweetness of the green tea. The tea ceremony has been deeply rooted in Kyoto’s culture for many centuries. The Uji region to the south of the city is renowned for the special methods and care used to grow tea leaves for matcha production.
