Matcha refers to finely milled or fine powder green tea. Matcha is made from shade-grown tea leaves. The preparation of matcha starts several weeks before harvest up to 30 days, 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. Only the finest tea buds are hand picked.
The flavour of Matcha is dominated by its amino acids, it can take up to one hour to grind 30 grams of Matcha.
The highest grades of Matcha have more intense sweetness and deeper flavour than the standard or coarse grades of tea harvested later in the year.
