Our USDA Certified Organic Matcha Tea Powder is ceremonial grade which uses the finest, smallest shade grown leaves from the very tip of the tea bush. This creates a vibrant green colour and slightly sweet, smooth flavour.
WHAT IS MATCHA?
Matcha is simply powdered green tea, however it is grown and harvested differently to standard green tea. The tea plant is grown in the shade for the final few months prior to harvest to boost the chlorophyll content of the leaves so it develops a vibrant green colour.
Green tea is made by brewing tea leaves in hot water after which the leaves are discarded. However, with matcha tea powder you actually consumes the green tea, which maximises the nutritional uptake. you get many times more nutritional bang for your buck from a teaspoon of matcha powder than a cup of brewed green tea. Matcha is very high in antioxidants, polyphenols and catechins.
How to use
It is the perfect natural food colouring that is actually nutrient rich. Add the powder to your favourite smoothie.
