The matcha you know and love in a bigger and better airtight tin! Unlike other teas where the leaf is being steeped and discarded, with Matcha you are consuming the entire leaf. This makes a single serving much higher in caffeine, equal to that of coffee. All matcha is made from high-grade, shade-grown green tea leaves that are ultimately ground into powdered form. The resulting tea powder is traditionally whisked into hot water, instead of steeped, to form a frothy drink. Because the window for production is quite limited and production so labor-intensive, matcha tends to be a more expensive tea. The act of preparing, presenting, and sipping matcha is part of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony called "chanoyu."Our matcha is premium-grade which has a heartier flavor that stands up better to milk and sweeteners than ceremonial matcha. It also can be used as a culinary ingredient for delicious baked goods!
