Matcha

Matcha is traditional Japanese green tea made by grinding down whole green tea leaves called Tencha into an ultra-fine powder. Unlike regular green tea, where you steep the leaves and discard them, matcha provides you with all the goodness and nutrients that leaves contain.

With its vibrant green color, matcha holds a special place in Japanese culture. It’s commonly used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies but is also found in various desserts like matcha ice cream and cakes. Find more delicious matcha recipes here.

  • Matcha powder is graded according to quality. While ceremonial-grade matcha is used for traditional tea ceremonies, culinary-grade matcha is a good choice for making matcha latte and dessert at an affordable price. Please note that some other types of matcha powder contain sugar.
