• The Origin

    In Japanese "ma-tcha" (抹茶) literally means "tea powder".

    It appeared in Japan 1,000 years ago, and is now an integral part of Japanese culinary culture where It is used in many hot and cold drinks and various pastries!
  • The Virtues

    Matcha offers the highest known value of cell-protecting antioxidants of any natural product. These antioxidants, called catechins, are believed to have powerful anti-cancer properties.

    The combination of caffeine and L-theanine in matcha allows for a state of sharp alertness and invigoration without the jitters associated with coffee consumption.
  • The Difference With Ordinary Tea

    Matcha is produced from special varieties of tea plants, and grown in a unique way that boosts their concentration of micro-nutrients.

    Because Matcha is drunk as an emulsified powder, not as brewed tea, the entire leaf is consumed and all the nutrients contained (amino acids, minerals, vitamins, fibre and antioxidants) are assimilated.

How do you consume it?

There are many ways to consume Matcha. The most famous is called "Matcha-Latte", that is to say, emulsified and mixed with milk. But it is also superb simply with water, where it reveals all its flavours.

In pastry, it has become a great classic because of its colour and its fine aromas.
Preparing a Matcha-Latte
  • A Ceremonial Quality Matcha

    The other grades of Matcha are made with lower-quality components and processes.
