Matcha Green Tea Powder Origins

This Matcha green tea powder country of origin is Japan. 

Matcha green tea powder is made from finely ground green tea leaves, which are covered during cultivation to protect them from direct sunlight. This increases their chlorophyll content, turns the leaves a vivid green, and stimulates the production of amino acids.

The preparation and consumption of matcha green tea powder was transformed into a colourful ritual by Zen Buddhists and it remains an indispensible ingredient in Zen monasteries today. In Japan it is used for the preparation of the green tea that is used in Japanese tea ceremonies.
