Matcha (抹茶) is a fine powder made of ground Tencha leaves from the autumn harvest. It is usually ground into powder using a ball mill.
This particular matcha has an astringent and bright taste, suitable for everyday use.
Traditionally, Matcha is prepared by dissolving the powder in hot water. A chasen (bamboo whisk) is used to froth up the mixture to achieve a smooth and creamy texture. Matcha plays an important part in the Japanese tea ceremony, the Sado or “the way of tea”, where tea preparation is used to emphasise beauty, simplicity and tranquility.
