What is culinary matcha?
Matcha is a powdered tea, which is ground from tea leaves. The culinary variant is more bitter, because the leaves that grow lower on the tea plant are used.
The origin and the production method...
Zen boeddhists from Japan encountered matcha during their travels through China. After that the Buddhists developed their own traditions and production methods.
This organic Japanese green tea is made from fresh, young Tencha tea leaves. They are picked by hand at the beginning of May (only one harvest per year). From 14 to 28 days before harvesting, the tea bushes are 90% covered (eclipsed) by tarpaulins. In the shade the leaves make extra chlorophyll and amino acids. The Tencha tea leaves are ground by traditional granite mills to an ultrafine emerald green powder. This powder contains no stems or veins but consists solely of 'leaf meat'. Many people find the pure taste not that pleasant which is why it is often combined with other ingredients to create lattes, ice cream, cookies, yoghurt or shakes. But nothing better than these vegan capsules where do you not taste the specific umami taste.
The real matcha can only come from Japan, specifically from the Uji region!
