Matcha is umami (a pleasant savory taste) with a smooth, complex vegetal flavor with a full palette and a silky finish. Enjoy this uniquely flavored tea with a bit of honey or as a latte.
抹茶 Matcha: Thought to be a cancer-fighter, a fat-burner, boosts concentration, increases energy, fortifies the immune system, and much more. One cup of matcha green tea has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of regular tea, leaving other green teas far behind. A long standing tradition of Japanese culture, Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality powdered green tea available. Made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants, Matcha Green Tea is steamed, stemmed, and de-veined before being stone-ground into very fine powder. Matcha Green Tea powder is then stored away from light and oxygen in order to preserve its brilliant green color and antioxidant properties. This elixir has been consumed for over a millennium in the Far East, and is now considered to be one of the most powerful superfoods on the market today.
