MATCHA 101

WHAT IS MATCHA?

 

Matcha is a fine powder made from stone-ground green tea leaves.  The combination of caffeine, l-theanine, and antioxidants makes for that calm, focused energy without the jitters and crash.

Unlike regular green tea, matcha plants are shade-grown for about 20 days. Doing so improves the vibrant color, boosts the nutrients and sweet Umami flavour. Rather than steeping a tea bag, the whole leaf is consumed when using matcha. One shot of matcha tea equals 10 cups of regular brewed green tea.
