We're seeing matcha pop up everywhere! From fancy lattes and pastries to energy drinks and facial masks, this extraordinary green tea is trending thanks to its delicious flavor and many health benefits.
So...what is matcha?
This revered tea has been prepared, served, and enjoyed during traditional tea ceremonies in Japan for centuries. To produce this delicacy, the most tender young green tea leaves (Camellia sinensis) are harvested, dried, and ground to a fine powder. When you drink matcha, you consume the entire green tea leaf, which is alive with antioxidants and a nice kick of caffeine. Whether whisked hot in the traditional preparation or combined with milk and honey poured over ice, matcha offers a truly remarkable sipping experience. Enjoy the video!
