MATCHA – WHAT IS IT?
Matcha is a high-quality powdered green tea, the healthiest of all kinds of green tea. Scientists who have been studying its medicinal properties for years are convinced that such properties are undoubtedly the result of the production process. The tea plants are shade-grown for two-three weeks before harvest, which slows their growth. During that time the leaves get pale green in colour and produce amino acids, which make the tea sweeter and more aromatic. The leaves are picked, dried and ground into powder of intense green colour. Thanks to this process, Matcha is sweeter and smoother than typical green tea.
