What is Japanese Matcha?
Japanese Matcha comes from the same Camellia Sinensis plant as all teas but about four weeks before it is harvested the Matcha tea field is shaded in Bamboo, resulting in a 90% reduction of sunlight. Now growing almost in the dark, Camellia Sinensis compensates for a lack of light by producing chlorophyll and thus making its leaves rich in Amino Acids. At the time of the harvest only the youngest most tender, emerald green leaves are picked from the top third of the bush. After being steamed and then freeze-dried, the highest quality leaves are selected and the stems gently removed.
The last step in producing Matcha takes place in a factory where special granite stone mills grind Tencha tea into superfine Matcha powder. The grinding itself is done in a cleanroom in which temperature and humidity are kept constant. The resulting bright and vibrant green coloured powder is then encapsulated into capsule form.
