The traditional way of producing matcha is long and laborious, which can explain why matcha is more expensive than other teas.
The soil and climate are very important, the tea plant (camillia Sinensis) grows for 7 years to reach full maturity. 4 to 6 weeks before harvest the farmers cover the plants under shade to induce higher levels of chlorophyll and amino acid production. During the harvest, the younger leaves are picked steamed, dried, and sorted for quality, nutrition, and taste. The dried leaves are then deveined and slowly grinded with stone mills to preserves its nutritional values and create the fine matcha powder.
Ideally, use water heated to 175°F (80°C) - not boiling This preserves matcha's antioxidants, delicate flavour and minimizes bitterness.
The traditional method involves a bamboo whisk (chasen) and vigorous, zigzag motions. Or, use a handheld frother for convenience (avoid the metal ones as speed and metal can alter matcha’s nutrient content). Have a look at our matcha guide.
Matcha pairs wonderfully with many fruits like mango, pineapple, lemon, berries or sweeteners like maple syrup, white and dark chocolate. They complement its earthy flavour while adding a touch of sweetness.
