Matcha is a Japanese style of enjoying tea. In matcha, the "cha" is the entire leaf of the carefully selected tea leaves that are dried and ground up, preparing a fine powder that is sifted and whisked with hot water using a special bamboo whisk. When done properly, an airy and refreshing, bright green drink is created. This is one of the original ways tea (cha) was consumed in China, before becoming the predominant style in Japan.
When purchasing matcha powder, be careful to purchase ceremonial or drinking grade, as cooking or culinary grade is not meant for drinking and will be too bitter. We offer various matcha sets to meet your needs and are happy to offer any questions you may have.
