Matcha - the bright green superfood from Japan

June 04, 2016

What is matcha? A little introduction to green tea powder in the Matcha blog.

Matcha consists of 100% ground green tea leaves and has an over 800 year old tradition. Back then, Matcha was drunk by Buddhist monks during meditation. Today the beneficial taste is valued all over the world of tea. The word "Matcha" is Japanese and means "ground tea".

The tea plant is shaded four weeks before harvest so that hardly any sunlight can reach the plants. This "stress", which is artificially created for the plant, stimulates the formation of chlorophyll.

The leaves are harvested once a year and after drying ground to a very fine powder in special granite stone mills. One hour of grinding results in approx. 30g matcha powder. In contrast to normal green tea, where only the infusion of the tea is drunk, with matcha tea you drink the whole leaf, so to speak, so that all the nutrients in the tea can be absorbed directly. We therefore attach particular importance to the fact that all of our teas organically grown Incidentally, Matcha is not only available in tea form, but also as a practical one Matcha capsules to take.

Matcha tea has different quality levels. In general, the higher the quality, the stronger the green and the more special the taste experience. A lower quality is suitable for processing matcha in dishes or mixed drinks (e.g. smoothie), while a high quality should be selected for pure matcha enjoyment.
