What Is Matcha Tea

Combine the high cost of producing matcha tea with matcha’s recent rise in popularity globally, and it’s no surprise that many products are trying to associate themselves with matcha tea. However, to be authentic matcha, three main criteria must be met:

  • Must be grown and processed in Japan
  • Must be Tencha Leaves
  • Must be developed in the shade for the final weeks before harvesting

Matcha is a fine powder of specially grown tencha green tea leaves. Green tea for matcha is produced in the shade for up to three weeks before it is harvested, enabling the plant to develop higher levels of chlorophyll, caffeine and theanine. This process is the same for organic matcha powder and the exact technique used by The Shimizu Tani Garden in Kyoto, Japan.
