Good to know
Exquisite green tea or Tencha leaves, carefully selected and picked by hand, are gently steamed over a water bath, dried with care and then ground into the finest tea powder in stone or granite mills.  Only the mere tea leaves are used for this, as stems and leaf veins are sorted out before. The last few weeks before the picking starts, the tea leaves are aged under stretched shade tarps. This allows the typical colouring and flavour-imparting components of Matcha, such as chlorophyll, vitamins and secondary plant substances to develop and concentrate – the secret of its intense green colour and distinctive, slightly sweetish-creamy taste.   

Preparation
Matcha is typically prepared in a large bowl with a bamboo whisk. The Matcha powder is beaten frothy into a unique, creamy, rich and beautiful tea “crema”. Thus all ingredients are dissolved in water and consumed while drinking. Unlike other teas, with Matcha, it is not only the infused tea that is consumed, but also the whole tea leaf with its wholesome ingredients. A true “Superfood”!
