100% Matcha Green Tea Powder
Our 100% GRADE A Premium Usacha Matcha Green Tea Powder is imported from Shizuoka, Japan. Matcha is the tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.
Matcha is a high-quality green tea powder with a fine texture. Its tea leaves are grown only in Japan and are shielded from sunlight several weeks before harvest, which causes the leaves to darken and produce higher levels of amino acids. After the best tea leaves are picked, they are dried out and ground manually to a fine powder on a stone mill to protect the nutrients in the leaves. Due to its high levels of amino acids, Matcha green tea has a deep and complex taste: initially bitter but with a sweet aftertaste.
Matcha tea powder was first cultivated by Japanese Zen priests, who developed rituals around it. During Japanese tea ceremonies, participants prepare Matcha green tea in a series of choreographed steps to achieve beauty, tranquility, and enlightenment. Matcha is the only tea used in these ceremonies, which can range from formal to social.
Many people drink green tea for its health benefits or to lose weight; Matcha takes it a step further. Matcha contains more antioxidants than virtually any other food, including Acai berries and pomegranates. It also contains high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid which lowers stress levels but preserves alertness. The L-theanine counteracts the caffeine in the tea, making Matcha ideal for creating a mental state of relaxed alertness.
To make Matcha green tea, simply blend 0.5-1 teaspoon of 100% Matcha powder and a small amount of hot water with a spoon to make a smooth paste. Add more water and sweetener as desired. Or, using a traditional bamboo whisk, put 0.5-1 teaspoon of 100% Matcha powder in a large cup or a drinking bowl and add a small amount of hot water. Whisk in a quick, light zig-zag motion until a layer of green froth appears on the surface. Add more water if desired. 100% Matcha powder can be used for thin or thick Matcha. The ideal water temperature for 100% Matcha green tea is 150-180 degrees Fahrenheit.
Matcha green tea powder also can be used for making green tea yogurt, green tea ice cream, or any other desserts or treats that call for green tea.

“I just received my first order and am very impressed with your products and your customer service. This is indeed the first time any company's sent an email to make sure everything arrived okay. I can't believe the price on your matcha tea -- I will be saying adios to Teavana for good. The veggie chips, key lime fudge and energy bars are all amazing (yes, I taste tested everything within moments of opening the package -- How could I not?!?), and I especially appreciated the free sample of dried strawberries. I will quickly become a loyal customer. :)”

“Our package arrived so fast and everything was fresh and in great condition. I've already made several green tea lattes and some cookies with the almond flour. My husband devoured the Southern Heat Mix I bought as a surprise treat for him. Thanks for the veggie chip sample. They were gone in an instant. We're always pleased when we do business with you guys. That's why we keep coming back for more! ”
