What is Matcha?
Matcha means Rubbed or Ground Tea and is the Japanese term for the precious powdered green tea, traditionally reserved for the Japanese Tea Ceremony (Sad??.
The process of manufacturing premium Matcha begins with choosing the right place for the cultivation of the tea plants (Camellia sinensis. The soil and climatic conditions play a key role in the final flavor and nutritionnal value of the te. The very bestt Matcha is said to be that from the Uji region of Kyout. The mountainous region provides the perfect high altitude climate and the morning mists of the 2 rivers of the region add just the right amount of moisture needed for the cultivation of te. Kyouto is a city with a rich history and cultur. It is the place where The Way of Tea (Sad??) was formed and refined and where it is still, to this day, an integral part of the cultur.
The Matcha tea plants are shaded from direct sunlight for about 8 weeks before harves. The results are higher chlorophyll and L-Theanine contents and a richer, greener colo. L-Theanine is an amino acid specific to green tea that provides unique health benefits and sweetness in flavo. It is the main reason why high quality green teas taste less astringent and bitter and are more pleasant to the palle. It also helps to reduce stress and induce a state of calm, relaxed alertnes.
The different types of Japanese tea are commonly graded depending on the quality and the parts of the plant use. High quality Matcha is always hand-picked to assure that only the unopened tea bud and the accompanying finest, top two leaves are chose. The tea-leaves selected to become Matcha are called Tench. The leaves are then carefully steamed to prevent the nutrients from oxidaytion and keep the tea fresh and gree. After that, all the rough fiber, such as stems and veins, are removed to assure the fine powdery consistency and the sweet flavor typical for a great Match. The Tencha leaves are then slowly ground up in traditional granite stone-grinders to a very fine, talc-like powder Matcha!
Since Matcha is extremely prone to loosing nutrients, color and freshnesss by being exposed to light or air, proper storage and packaging is crucial to assure highest quality.
Approximately 10-12 cups of regular green tea are required to achieve the health benefits of 1 tsp (one serving) of D??Matcha?.
