Matcha, originated from China, is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea.
It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: The green tea plants for matcha are shade-
grown for about three weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed in processing.
The traditional Chinese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha. In modern times, matcha also has come to be used to flavour and dye foods such as mochi and soba
noodles, green tea ice cream,etc.
It’s a special form of green tea：
Matcha literally means “powdered tea.” When you order traditional green tea, components from the
leaves get infused into the hot water, then the leaves are discarded. With matcha, you’re drinking the
actual leaves, which have been finely powdered and made into a solution, traditionally by mixing
about a teaspoon of matcha powder with a third cup of hot water (heated to less than a boil), which is then whisked with a bamboo brush until it froths.
Unlike traditional green tea, matcha preparation involves covering the tea plants with shade cloths
before they’re harvested. This triggers the growth of leaves with better flavor and texture, which are
hand selected, steamed briefly to stop fermentation, then dried and aged in cold storage, which
deepens the flavor. The dried leaves are then stone-ground into a fine powder.
It offers health benefits：
Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it’s a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. In addition to providing small amounts of vitamins and
minerals, matcha is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been tied to protection
against heart disease and cancer, as well as better blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. Another polyphenol in matcha called EGCG has been shown in research to boost
metabolism, and slow or halt the growth of cancer cells.
Matcha can be categorised into three grades:
★Culinary grade: Cheapest of all , Suitable for cooking purposes as it does not contain the full health benefits and is slightly bitter due to using leaves lower down on the green tea plant.
★★★Premium grade: High quality matcha green tea that contains the full nutritional content and uses tea leaves from the top of the tea plant. Best for daily consumption and contains the full range of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. Is characterized by a fresh, subtle flavour. Usually perfect for both new and every day matcha drinkers alike.
★★★★★Ceremonial grade: This is the highest quality used mainly in tea ceremonies and Buddhist temples. This is stone ground into a powder by granite stone mills. It is high quality but expensive. For the unschooled drinker they are unlikely to notice a large difference between Ceremonial and Premium grade.
In general, matcha is expensive compared to other forms of tea, although its price depends on its quality. Grades of matcha are defined by many factors.
