What is Matcha
- Matcha is green tea ground into a very fine powder that the Japanese have been indulging in for over 800 years.
- This means you drink the entire green tea leaf, rather than just what is extracted in regular tea.
- Why does this matter? 1 cup of matcha = 10 cups of green tea.
- Not all green tea powder is created equal! only the ground green tea leaves that are deveined, and destemmed becomes matcha.
