Enjoy this very approachable, smooth matcha with enlivening notes of almond, mild citrus, and lingering sweetness." 50 Grams of Ceremonial Grade Matcha Tea Powder.

    "Hori Tea Farm, Wazuka Village
    Not only is this farm women-led, but their leadership has spanned at least three generations of great matcha producers. Shade-growing boosts the chlorophyll production in the tea leaves, giving them a rich green color. It is a labor-intensive process to protect the tea bushes from the sun in a very controlled manner. Only the newest spring buds and three leaves of the shade grown tea plants are harvested. The leaves are briefly steamed within hours of plucking to halt the oxidation process and preserve the vivid green color. The steaming process also creates a uniquely sweet and vegetal flavor profile. After further intensive processing, tencha, the finished dried leaves, are then stone ground into fine powder at a rate of 40 grams per hour. Hori matcha is used by the Urasenke tea school.

    Matcha Powder
    All matcha is made from high-grade, shade-grown green tea leaves that are ultimately ground into powdered form. The resulting tea powder is traditionally whisked into hot water, instead of steeped, to form a frothy drink. Because the window for production is quite limited and production so labor-intensive, matcha tends to be a more expensive tea. The act of preparing, presenting, and sipping matcha is part of a traditional Japanese tea ceremony called "chanoyu." Generally speaking, matcha created for the purpose of this traditional tea ceremony is the distinction for “ceremonial grade”, versus matcha used in culinary practices. There is no official governing body at this time that regulates this term.
