Matcha Green Teas
Matcha Green Tea is a powdered green tea, traditionally used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony. Matcha is produced from the leaves of shade-grown tea, and then ground into a fine powder with a hand mill. Beyond simply using it for making tea, Matcha is also widely used for cooking and for making green tea iced cream. In contrast to many other types of green teas that are steeped and then the leaves are discarded, the actual ground up leaves are ingested when drinking Matcha.
Because Matcha Green Tea is powdered, it is also prepared quite differently than traditional steeped teas. Typically the tea is made by mixing a thid of a cup of water with a teaspoon of the powder, and then whisking them together with a Bamboo Matcha Whisk. We carry all of the components required to properly prepare Matcha in our Matcha Accessories section.
