Matcha literally means "Powdered Tea" and yet it’s a very special type of green tea grown only in Japan. It is a highly-prized, jewel-green powder that is whisked in a bowl with hot water to make a frothy beverage of the same name, or added to other recipes such as lattes, smoothies, savoury sauces, or pastries.
Preparation of matcha is the focus of the Japanese tea ceremony, and has a long association with Zen. Matcha is the only form of tea in which the whole leaf is consumed. Because it is made only from top-quality young leaves that are grown, harvested, and prepared with great care, it has a much more beneficial health profile than other green teas. Its flavour and texture are unlike other teas; matcha is a beautiful and richly-flavoured beverage.
High levels of chlorophyll and amino acids give Matcha its unique, wonderful flavour. Unlike many teas which require sweeteners, Matcha has its own sweetness. Matcha made in the traditional Japanese style, whisked with water, is a full-bodied green tea. Like dark chocolate or red wine, Matcha has a rich flavour that you appreciate more over time. When added as an ingredient, matcha adds its characteristic lovely green colour and a subtle flavour.
Matcha is not only used for tea but goes fantastically well in food recipes.
