MATCHA organic green tea

Used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony, matcha is a sort of “tea espresso” or super concentrated form of green tea, made from shade-grown tea leaves that are stone ground into a fine, vibrant powder. Before harvesting, tea plants are covered with large tarp-like shades to prevent direct sunlight. Lack of sunlight increases the tealeaf’s chlorophyll levels and creates hyper-production of green tea’s healthy antioxidants and amino acids, in particular L-theanine, which is responsible for matcha’s soothing, uplifting energy. Matcha has exceptionally high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid that famously promotes mental relaxation and alertness, helps the body deal with stress, and creates a focused sense of calm. Matcha’s rise in popularity is due in part to it’s impressive health benefits; when drinking matcha, the tealeaf is ingested rather than simply steeped, which intensifies the flavor and delivers the maximum potency of catchins, chlorophyll, and antioxidants. The result is a savory, creamy, full-bodied cup with bittersweet vegetal and rich umami notes. Our matcha offers a full palate with a pleasant bittersweet intensity, lightened with notes of lush grass and sweet snow peas, that mellows into a smooth, creamy finish.
