Description

Profile: Matcha is a green tea made from shade-grown tea leaves that has been ground into a fine powder. With a brilliant green hue and silky texture, it offers a smooth, refreshing, somewhat sweet flavor.

Details: Our Matcha Fair Trade Tea is of the highest culinary quality. Culinary grade matcha is a high-quality tea with a flavor profile that differs significantly from ceremonial grade matcha. Culinary grade matcha isn't inherently of poorer quality than ceremonial grade matcha; it's simply prepared differently for a different purpose and has distinct qualities. It has a stronger flavor than ceremonial matcha, is less sweet, and has more bitter undertones.

Matcha is great as an iced tea, a regular hot tea, and in green tea lattes and smoothies. Its heightened flavor profile works well with other flavors, and it's a versatile ingredient that can be found in ice cream, pies, mousse, cupcakes, shortbread cookies, and pancakes, among other desserts and baked goods.
