What is Matcha 抹茶 ?
Matcha is a finely ground, powdered green tea that has been enjoyed for centuries in Japan. Made from shade-grown tea leaves, matcha is known for its vibrant green color, unique taste, and numerous health benefits.
Our matcha is made in Japan using traditional methods and carefully selected tea leaves. It is certified organic, ensuring that it is grown and processed without the use of harmful chemicals or pesticides. Our Japanese matcha tea is the highest quality ceremonial grade matcha available, known for its smooth taste, vibrant green color.
In Japan, matcha is traditionally prepared by whisking the powdered tea with hot water until a frothy layer forms on top. The resulting tea has a delicate flavor profile with subtle notes of umami and a smooth, creamy texture.
Matcha is known for high levels of antioxidants. It is also a natural source of caffeine, making it a popular alternative to coffee for those looking for a more sustained energy boost.
🍵 Why is Matcha so good for you?
Where does Matcha come from? 抹茶の産地は？
Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that originated in China and was later brought to Japan. Today, Japan is the primary producer and exporter of matcha tea, with the region of Shizuoka being one of the most important production areas.
Shizuoka is a coastal region in Japan known for its mild climate and fertile soil, which provides ideal conditions for growing tea. The region has a long history of tea cultivation and is recognized for producing some of the highest quality matcha in the world.
Our matcha tea comes from Shizuoka, Japan, where it is carefully grown and processed using traditional methods. The tea plants are grown under shade cover for several weeks before harvesting, which enhances the flavor and nutritional content of the leaves.
Whether enjoyed as a traditional tea or used in a variety of recipes, matcha from Shizuoka, Japan offers a unique taste and health benefits that are unrivaled. Experience the quality and flavor of authentic Japanese matcha with Aki Matcha.
AKI Matcha Production Process 生産工程
Producing matcha is fairly labour intensive and takes a while to create. About 20 days before harvest, the leaves of the tree are shaded from the sun to increase their chlorophyll levels. This is what creates the vibrant green color in the powder.
The shade also creates an amino acid called L-Theanine, the magic ingredient in matcha that helps drinkers to stay calm yet alert.
When harvest time swings round, the workers choose the best buds and then roll out the leaves to dry for premium matcha, or lay them out without rolling for regular matcha. After the drying process is complete, the workers pick the stems and veins out of the leaves and grind them with stones until they turn into a fine green powder.
