Matcha is a variety of fine, powdered green tea used particularly in the Japanese tea ceremony, as well as to flavour and dye foods such as Mochi and Soba noodles, Green Tea ice cream and a variety of Wagashi (Japanese confectionery).
Matcha is made from shade-grown tea leaves also used to make gyokuro, unlike other forms of powdered tea, such as powdered Sencha.
The preparation of Matcha starts several weeks before harvest, when the tea bushes are covered to prevent direct sunlight. This slows down growth, turns the leaves a darker shade of green and causes the production of amino acids that make the resulting tea sweeter.
After being picked, fresh tea leaves are processed the same day. These tea leaves go through six steps: steaming, drying, sorting, grinding with a stone mill. After harvesting, if the leaves are rolled out before drying as usual, the result will be Gyokuro (jewel dew) tea.
However, if the leaves are laid out flat to dry, they will crumble somewhat and become known as Tencha. Tencha can then be de-veined, de-stemmed, and stone ground to the fine, bright green powder known as Matcha. It takes one hour to grind 40g of top-quality Matcha with a stone mill. The result is a finely-textured powder.
Supreme Matcha uses the best fine leaves. These are found in the tips of the green tea tree (Camellia Sinensis), otherwise known as the flush or new growth. Storage, the stone grind, and age can all effect the quality of Matcha.
The stone grinding process is an artisan technique and a bad grind can ruin otherwise premium Matcha. Humidity, time, and strong odours also have the potential to ruin it.
We at have gone to great lengths to locate only the finest teas available. This top grade matcha use fresh leaves plucked in organic tea gardens in early spring, it is then ground by stone.
The product reaches 1600 mesh ultrafine which represents top quality on the market.
