Bulk Japanese Matcha (Organic & Non-Organic Ceremonial, Culinary, or Industrial Matcha)
MATCHA TEA PRODUCTS: Matcha is a powdered green tea made from grinding specially cultivated green tea leaves known as “tencha.” Matcha is considered to be a superfood, as it is known for its many health benefits, including rich nutrients and antioxidants. Once a coveted green tea amongst Buddhist monks in Japan, matcha green tea is now one of the most popular ingredients in the world, found in a range of consumer products such as beverages, pastries, and even skincare products! Matcha is categorized into three grades: ceremonial grade, culinary (or ingredient) grade, and industrial grade. The difference between the different grades of matcha comes down to quality and flavor.
QUALITY & FLAVOR
Matcha quality and flavor are determined by the time of harvest along with cultivation and manufacturing methods. Higher grades of matcha tend to have smoother flavor, stronger vegetal aroma, and a more vibrant green color. Lower grades tend to have higher levels of astringency, earthy aroma, and more yellowish or brownish tones.
