Matcha is a ceremonial powdered green tea in Japan. Green tea plants are covered with bamboo mats in the last few weeks of their growing season to promote full flavor. After the leaves are dried, they are ground into a fine powder. Matcha has traditionally been prepared in Chanoyu—the Japanese Tea Ceremony. In the authentic tradition of Chanoyu, the five senses work to their fullest capacity. This tea has a unique, creamy, sweet, and rich oceanic taste. Matcha is also one of the only types of teas that uses the entire leaf, providing greater health benefits than most other teas, including additional vitamin C and protein.
