Our Matcha Green Tea powder is made with premium Matcha. This tea is a Japanese tradition. It is the star of the centuries-old Japanese tea ceremony, and its pleasant taste and health benefits make it a favorite of many tea-lovers today. The green tea plants for matcha are shade grown for about 3 weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed in processing. Shaded growth produces more theanine and chlorophyll. Deliciously vegetative and a must try.
