Matcha is finely ground green tea powder with rich historic roots with Japanese tea ceremonies. The tea leaves are shaded from the sun before harvesting which increases the chlorophyll, resulting in its beautiful bright green color. Matcha is unique among teas in that you’re consuming the actual fresh green tea leaf, and this is one of many reasons why matcha is much more nutrient dense than standard tea.
Available at TōKU Tea stand in Williamsburg.
