Buy Matcha tea - What you should definitely pay attention to

Matcha is green tea ground into a fine powder that originated in Japan and is used in the Japanese tea ceremony. The tea inspires with a strong color and a good taste. Tea has recently become a trend drink. However, it can not only be drunk pure, it is also suitable for cooking and baking. Similar to coffee, the tea can be drunk in different variations, for example as a matcha latte. Unfortunately, there are now many suppliers who buy cheap, inferior matcha tea and then resell it cheaply. So that you can enjoy your tea, you should pay attention to the following things when buying matcha tea:

Origin and production - important aspects when buying matcha tea

If you want to buy matcha tea, they play origin and manufacture an important role. You make a good decision when buying Matcha tea with a tea that 100 percent organic is and exclusively from Japan comes from, because you can rely on a long tradition and expertise in cultivation as well as on quality. With organic qualities, care is taken to ensure that the tea fields are cultivated without pesticides, herbicides or genetic engineering. The tea is picked and processed under the strictest biological monitoring. So that there is no loss of quality, attention is paid to short distances during processing.

The tea from Matcha Magic is therefore absolutely free of harmful substances. This is particularly important because you are not using a tea bag when enjoying Matcha tea, but are consuming the entire tea leaf (more precisely the leaf flesh) in finely ground form. Only the youngest leaves are used to produce the finest, high-quality green tea powder. They are still picked by hand. Precisely because quality is our top priority, you will only find high-quality organic Matcha from Japan in our range.

Quality differences in matcha tea

In our opinion, when buying matcha tea, the focus should definitely be on quality. Since the term "Matcha" is not a protected term and only means "ground tea", you should make sure that where Matcha is on the label, there is really good Matcha in it. Differences in the quality of tea arise, for example, from the cultivation area and the time of picking. For high-quality Matcha, which is particularly suitable for a tea ceremony, you should make sure when buying Matcha tea that the tea comes from an early plucking, because then only the fresh, young tea leaves were used for the tea. It is then more intense and aromatic in taste and less bitter. The degree of shading also has a decisive influence on the quality. The shading promotes the accumulation of various ingredients such as chlorophyll or theine and has a positive effect on the taste. The more the tea has been shaded, the more aromatic its taste and the more intense its color. The taste and quality are also determined by processing and storage. If the tea is quickly packed in an airtight container, oxidation by atmospheric oxygen can be avoided, as a result of which the tea quickly loses quality.

Multiple uses for Matcha

If you want to buy Matcha tea and take a look around, you will quickly find that Matcha is not just Matcha. The tea differs not only in its quality, but also in its purpose.
