Green powder tea from Kagoshima, south Japan
Unique finely grounded green tea. After drying, the highest quality Japanese green tea leaves are grounded on slowly rotating stone mills. Thanks to this particularly gentle processing, matcha retains all active substances such as vitamins, antioxidants, minerals and fiber. It has a clear fresh taste and aroma. It is a unique experience. The specialty of this tea is the fact that it was grounded on stone mills directly in Europe. Processed from the leaves of shaded tea Kabusé No 1 from the first harvest.
Preparation: With a special bamboo tea spoon called chashaku, add 3 teaspoonfuls of tea powder into a preheated tea bowl (chawan), then add 2 dl of 75°C hot water and whisk with a bamboo whisk known as chasen. The tea will have an emerald green foam.
Owing to the content of non-oxidized polyphenols, green tea has a proven antibacterial and antiviral effect and decreases cholesterol levels. Quality Japanese teas also contain lots of vitamins A, B, C, E and P, and catechins, carotene, amino acids and minerals such as potassium, fluorine and zinc.
Unlike the usual green tea leaves which are discarded after steeping, matcha leaves are whipped with water and consumed. When drinking matcha, antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and pulp from green tea are consumed in higher concentrations.
Matcha also contains a lot of L-theanines – unique natural amino acids, appearing almost exclusively in green tea – and theophylline which has a similar effect like caffeine. These substances are thought to jointly help maintain higher mental clarity and energy.
Tip: store matcha in the fridge.
