Matcha is the powdered form of Tencha tea leaves.
The difference between Matcha and green tea powder can be confusing. The difference comes down to what kind of tea leaves are used and how they are prepared. Matcha is the powdered form of the shade-grown Tencha tea leaves, while green powder tea is made from the sun-grown (Sencha) tea leaves.
This shading process, important in Matcha production, results in high levels of Theanine, a type of amino acid, that remains in tea leaves and gives a full-bodied Umami-rich sweetness.
Matcha is categorized into two types, ceremonial and culinary. As its name suggests ceremonial grade Matcha is used in the green tea ceremony. All of our Matcha is ceremonial grade and comes in four designations within that premium level. If you want to hold your own 'way of tea' ceremony or to make a Matcha Latte we have what you need.
