About Matcha Taishan

Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that is traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies. It is made from shade-grown tea leaves, a process that enhances the flavour and texture of the leaves. The leaves are ground into a fine powder, which is then whisked into hot water, creating a frothy and flavourful beverage.

Matcha is made from tea leaves that are grown under shade for about 20-30 days before harvest. This process increases chlorophyll levels, giving Matcha its vibrant green colour, and promotes the production of amino acids, contributing to its unique flavour profile.

Matcha is available in different grades. Ceremonial grade is the highest quality and is often used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies. Culinary grade is used in cooking and baking, providing a more affordable option with a slightly stronger flavour.

It has a rich, complex flavour with a balance of sweetness, umami, and a slight bitterness. The shade-growing process contributes to the development of amino acids, particularly L-theanine, which gives Matcha its characteristic umami taste.

To prepare matcha, the powder is whisked into hot water using a bamboo whisk (chasen). The resulting beverage is smooth, frothy, and provides a concentrated burst of tea flavor.

While Matcha is traditionally consumed as a tea, it has gained popularity in various culinary applications. It can be used in lattes, smoothies, desserts, and even savoury dishes, adding a unique green tea flavour.

Matcha is rich in antioxidants, including catechins and polyphenols, which are believed to have various health benefits. It also contains caffeine, providing a gentle energy boost without the jitters associated with some coffee beverages.

Matcha holds cultural significance in Japan and is often associated with traditional tea ceremonies. The preparation and consumption of Matcha are considered a meditative and mindful practice
