About Matcha Tea:

Matcha (抹茶) is a fine powder made from whole ground tealeaves, and is distinctive in its rich flavor and deep green color. The young shoots are shaded for 3-4 weeks, and after harvesting and drying the stems and veins are removed from the leaf to make Tencha. This is then ground into a powder using a stone mill or ball mill. Traditionally, Matcha is prepared by dissolving the powder in hot water, and a bamboo whisk is used to froth up the mixture to achieve a smooth and creamy texture. Matcha plays an important part in the Japanese tea ceremony, the Sado or “the way of tea”, where tea preparation is used to emphasize beauty, simplicity and tranquility.

Premium Cooking Matcha retains its extraordinary color and flavor after baking. It is made from the ground leaves of the Yabukita cultivar, a popular cultivar most commonly used for making Senchas (green tea).

It has the perfect balance between aroma, flavor and color.
