What's Matcha?

Matcha is the stone-ground Japanese style green tea. It has the unique aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest and the stems and veins are completely removed in processing. During the shaded growth, Camellia sinensis produces more theanine and caffeine. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, and is dissolved in a liquid, typically water or milk. Matcha also has come to be used to flavor and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodels, ice cream, matcha lattes and a variety of Japanese snacks.
