What is Matcha?
Unlike other green teas that let you infuse, matcha is stone-ground powder from young green tea leaves. Three weeks before the harvest, Japanese farmers select the highest quality green tea plants. They shade them for slower growth. The limited access to sunlight gives a boost to the chlorophyll, which ensures an intense green color.
It is also the process that grows more L-theanine, a unique amino acid that relaxes the mind without making you feel sleepy. Your matcha tea gets a soft and fruity taste. The combination of caffeine, L-theanine and antioxidants ensures a long-lasting release of energy, which some call "zen energy".
Pure & Organic
After picking, the baby tea leaves are stripped, steamed and dried. This results in "tencha tea" the raw product name of matcha. After this, the tencha tea leaves are carefully ground into powder, until they become pure matcha green tea powder. That way, all the good aspects of the tea are preserved, from plant to tea cup!
Rather than having a tea bag "infused", the beauty of matcha lies in consuming the entire leaf. That is why it is important that what you drink is not full of harmful pesticides. All our processes: from cultivation to harvesting and processing our Whisk Matcha is therefore done in a completely organic manner.
