WHAT IS MATCHA?
It is a powdered green tea produced in Japan. Used as a tea for drinking (Ceremonial Grade) or as an ingredient in recipes (Culinary Grade). The real MATCHA is produced only in Japan.
WHAT GRADE OF MATCHA IS YOURS?
Ours is a Ceremonial Grade, intended for preparation as a tea for drinking. See preparation method below.
HOW IT IS PREPARED?
The preparation of traditional Matcha consists of adding 80 ml of water at a “temperature between 60-75 ° ” (not boiling temperature) and 1 portion (1 g) of Matcha. Mix rapidly using a traditional Matcha Wisk or an ordinary kitchen blender.
DOES IT CONTAIN CAFFEINE?
Yes, each portion (1 g) contains about 30 mg of caffeine, equivalent to 1/3 of a cup of coffee. Matcha also contains theanine, which has a calming effect and reduces the effects of caffeine.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS?
It is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fibres and chlorophyll. The health benefits are much higher than those of other green teas. By drinking Matcha, 100% of the nutrients contained in the leaves are ingested. A cup of Matcha is equivalent to 20 cups of green tea in terms of nutritional values and antioxidant content.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN CULINARY GRADE AND CEREMONIAL GRADE?
Culinary grade (of lower quality) is used as an ingredient in recipes, while ceremonial grade is intended for traditional preparation as a tea for drinking. Culinary grade comes from the 2nd and 3rd harvests of green tea leaves, ceremonial grade from the first harvest.
