The Unique Qualities of Matcha Tea

Matcha tea has taken the world by storm. It is widely regarded as the most exquisite green tea in the world. Green tea is known as one of the healthiest forms of tea due to its lack of processing. It is a ground powder of specially grown green tea, with a vibrant emerald colour and delicate sweet taste. Matcha is the most potent green tea in the world because the entire leaf is ingested in powder form.


Harvesting and Production

The smoothness of Matcha is created by stripping all the fine stems and veins from whole leaves before drying and careful grinding with granite mill wheels. This creates a very fine powder which completely dissolves when well whisked meaning the whole leaf is drunk. The concentrated green tea powder is full of nutrients. 


History of Matcha Tea

In Japan ‘’cha’’ means tea and ‘’ma’’ means powder, thus the word matcha translates literally as powdered green tea. It is famously used in the Japanese tea ceremony, which centres on the preparation, serving and drinking of matcha. It is more than just a drink in Japan; the grace, tranquillity and attentiveness that are emphasised in the ceremony of preparation brings people together and focuses them on the here and now. Traditionally, Matcha is drunk in three gulps.

Mixed with hot water, matcha provides a stimulating and refreshing drink. It can also be combined with fruit juice, milk or yoghurt - or even used in cooking, to give everyday recipes an unusual twist










With the original tools such as the Matcha bowl and the bamboo brush, even the traditional preparation becomes an experience for you.

  • Sift around half a level teaspoon of Matcha powder in a warm bowl
  • Add freshly boiled water, ideally at 80c-90c
  • Froth using a bamboo whisk for around 15 seconds
  • Once a fine foam appears on the surface, the tea is ready for drinking
  • Enjoy!

There is approximately 30mg of caffeine per 1g serving of Matcha.  A regular cup of coffee typically contains 70-75mg of caffeine.
