PureTea's ceremonial matcha is grown in Japan in the Kyoto prefecture. Prior to the harvest of matcha, the tea plants are shaded to bring out brightness and sweetness not associated with other green teas. The leaves are then harvested and processed, and PureTea's ceremonial matcha tea is ground down to a fine powder.
Today, matcha is still used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony, but also in a variety of other manners. Ceremonial matcha is used in cakes, pies and ice cream, as an ingredient in baked goods and entrees and it is especially popular in lattes and smoothies. Getting a regular intake of the antioxidants from matcha green tea may also help with a healthy body, through lowering cholesterol and blood pressure.
What is matcha?
Matcha is made from Japanese green tea leaves (Sencha) that are stone-ground into a fine tea powder. Before processing, the tea plants are shade-grown for about three weeks, and the veins are removed. The result is a high quality tea that has retained all the nutrients from the tea leaves and is very high in antioxidants.
How to make matcha tea?
Matcha green tea is made by mixing 1/2 to 1 tsp of matcha powder (sifted for best results) with 2 to 3 oz. of near boiling water. The mix is then traditionally blended with a bamboo whisk (Chasen) in a "M" or "W" motion until the surface is frothy. More water may be added to adjust for desired taste.
What does matcha taste like?
A high quality bowl of matcha green tea will have a strong vegetal taste mixed with a naturally sweet aftertaste. The grade of matcha used, along with preparation methods will greatly affect the taste and flavor of your tea.
