Frequently asked questions
HOW MUCH MATCHA SHOULD I USE ? HOW MUCH CAN I HAVE?
A single serving can range from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of powder. We recommend starting with less. See how you feel. Over time you can experiment with the ration of tea to water (or liquid) that best suits you. Matcha is rich in fiber, so if your system has been sluggish, you may experience some renewed digestive vitality. That’s a good thing
WHAT DOES MATCHA TASTE LIKE?
Matcha tea is made from shade-covered leaves. This process increases the chlorophyll content of the leaf and produces a full bodied, creamy vegetal taste, occasionally with an astringent note, depending on the grade of tea. Other factors like temperature of water and ration of powder to other ingredients will influence the flavor profile of your finished beverage
DOES YOU SELL MATCHA IN TEA BAGS?
Matcha is whole tea leaves stone ground into a fine powder. When you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients of the tea. Occasionally you will find matcha in tea bags, usually blended with other whole leaf teas. This is a low quality matcha, which will flavor the steep, but with little nutritional benefit. For pure matcha taste and maximum nutritional impact, choose loose powdered tea and prepare your own brew – your way of course.
WHY MATCHA TEA IS RELATIVELY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN OTHER GREEN TEAS?
Matcha production is limited. Covering the fields with bamboo mats, or tarps, weakens the tea plants, and a longer recovery period is needed before they can be harvested again. Most farmers pick matcha leaves entirely by hand – although machine picking is not un-common. Local farmers closely supervise the growing, harvesting and sorting of matcha leaves. At the factory, production requires several processes including steaming, drying, destemming, sorting, grinding and packaging. Each stone grinder produces only about 40 grams of matcha in an hour.
WHATS THE NEED OF INCORPORATING MATCHA IN YOUR LIFE ?
Matcha not only help you in keeping your heart healthy but also helps you to keep your heart young. Matcha tea helps you to preserve LDL cholestrol by reducing oxidation in the body-which may further decrease one's risk of heart disease.
