Matcha (30g)

What is matcha? 

Matcha is a very fine powder produced from green tea, traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies.

Brought into mainstream consumption in recent year it can now be found in smoothies, juices, lattes and cakes.

Why is it so special?

Unlike most tea produced in Japan, Matcha is hand picked. Before it is picked it has been shaded for at least the previous 20 days.  These leaves are then steamed but not rolled, they are stripped of the stem and veins and ground into a very fine powder. This means when we drink matcha we are ingesting the whole leaf not an infusion of the leaf.

Yuck!

Matcha can be an acquired tastes, not everyone like the pure drink straight away much like coffee. Why not try adding your milk of choices and/or some honey or sugar?
