Matcha is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder.
Use this culinary grade matcha in your smoothies, lemonade, baking...the possibilities are endless...to provide a wonderful boost of antioxidants to your diet.
