Matcha is unique to Japan and the matcha tea ceremony has been an integral part of traditional Japanese culture for centuries. Matcha is made using Tencha tea leaves that have been shaded for weeks before plucking, forcing the plants to produce higher than normal chlorophyll levels and giving the leaves a rich green colour. It is steamed, dried, stripped of all stems and veins and then stone-ground into a fine powdered tea. Matcha contains 10 times the nutritional value and antioxidant content of brewed green tea, giving a steady high-energy and long-lasting boost. Numerous medical studies point to Matcha’s health benefits.
