Matcha is a premium green tea powder originating from Japan traditionally served in tea ceremonies. The whole leaf is ground to a powder.
It is enjoyed as a great cup of tea used but also, as an ingredient in recipes.
The health benefits of this tea exceed those of green tea because when you drink matcha you ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water.
One cup of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
