Matcha is a green tea from Japan which has been stone-ground into a powdered form. All matcha tea is shade-grown which boosts chlorophyll production, giving the leaf a bright green colour. The leaves are then steamed and dried before being de-stemmed and deveined in preparation for the stone grinding into powder. Due to its unique production method and consumption of the whole leaf, matcha is high in caffeine and is known for its many health benefits. It’s incredibly versatile, and is also used in desserts, lattes and ice cream. The full-bodied and grassy, vegetal profile of matcha is a perfect match with citrus flavours, which also boost the antioxidants already found in your cup of matcha!
