Matcha Green Tea Powder is unlike other green teas, which you let steep, matcha is stone ground powder from young green tea leaves. Three weeks before harvest Japanese farmers select the highest quality green tea plants. They place them in the shade for slower growth. The limited access to sunlight gives a boost to the chlorophyll, which gives an intense green colour.
It is also the process that grows more L-theanine, a unique amino acid that relaxes the mind without making you feel sleepy. It gives your matcha tea a smooth and fruity taste. The combination of caffeine, L-theanine and antioxidants provides a sustained release of energy, which some call "zen energy".
Pure & Organic
After picking, the baby tea leaves are stripped of their stems, steamed and dried. This results in 'tencha tea' the raw product name of matcha. After this, the tencha tea leaves are carefully ground into powder, until they become pure matcha green tea powder. This way, all the good aspects of the tea are preserved, from plant to cup!
Instead of letting a teabag 'steep', the beauty of matcha lies in consuming the whole leaf. Therefore, it is important that what you drink is not full of harmful pesticides. All of our processes, from growing to harvesting to processing our Whisk Matcha, are therefore completely organic.
