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.
