Matcha Tea Japan 100g

Why Matcha?

Matcha has been at the heart of Japanese ceremonies for hundreds of years and utilized even longer for its medicinal purposes in China. Matcha did not reach Japan until the 12th century when Japanese monk Myoan Eisai brought home a large number of tea seeds and the tradition of matcha drinking after a trip to China. While the Matcha in China gradually fell, the production of Matcha in Japan was driven to perfection.

Matcha is one of the most potent natural antioxidants to date, due to its unique cultivation process. The Matcha shrubs are grown under shelter from the sun to slow down the process of photosynthesis. This stimulates the chlorophyll and amino acids content. The young leaves are delicately handpicked, briefly steamed, and then dried in a cold storage to deepen the flavour. The leaves are then stone ground into a fine powder.

Due to the delicate and intricate process of Matcha, it is rich in numerous vitamins and minerals including, vitamins B1, B2, B3, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, beta-carotene, potassium, and calcium. Matcha is especially high in antioxidants called polyphenols.

Our Matcha is grown on the Island of Kagoshima in Japan, one of the most important areas for growing Matcha in Japan – especially organic matcha production.
