So, what is matcha?

Matcha is a vibrant green powder made from shade-grown tea leaves that have been ground into a fine consistency. This Japanese delicacy is known for its unique flavor profile, which is a blend of earthy, vegetal, and slightly bitter notes. Matcha is packed with antioxidants and contains a natural source of caffeine, making it a healthy alternative to coffee. This versatile ingredient can be used in a variety of recipes, from traditional Japanese tea ceremonies to modern lattes, smoothies, and desserts. Matcha's beautiful green color and distinct flavor make it a popular ingredient among foodies and health enthusiasts alike.
