    Product information
    For those of you who don't know much about matcha, we can inform you that matcha is a unique and special type of green tea that originates from China. The tea is finely ground powder form of tea leaves and this gives matcha its famously beautiful, deep green color, with its characteristic taste and its many health benefits.

    Health and matcha
    One of the benefits of matcha is its high content of antioxidants. Antioxidants help protect the body from harmful free radicals, which can cause cell damage and increase the risk of certain diseases. Matcha also contains caffeine, which can provide mild, long-lasting energy without the unpleasant side effects often associated with coffee brewing.

    Matcha also contains the amino acid theanine, which has calming and relaxing properties. Theanine is known to help reduce stress, improve concentration and promote a sense of calm and well-being.

    Production of matcha
    The traditional process of producing matcha is extensive. Before the harvest, the tea bushes are covered for about 20-30 days to protect them from the sunlight. This process, known as shade growth, helps to increase the levels of chlorophyll and amino acids in the leaves and gives matcha its characteristic color and taste.

    After harvesting, the leaves are steamed to prevent oxidation and preserve their freshness. The leaves are then dried and separated from the stems and veins. The dried leaves are then ground into a fine powder using traditional stone grinders.

    This process is painstaking and requires expertise to achieve the right quality and consistency of matcha.
