What is Matcha?

Matcha is a type of powdered green tea that originates from Japan. Unlike traditional green tea, where leaves are steeped and discarded, matcha is made from whole tea leaves ground into a fine powder. This means that when you drink matcha, you consume the entire leaf, which provides a more concentrated source of nutrients and antioxidants.

Critical Characteristics of Matcha:

  1. Production Process:
    • Shading: The tea plants are shaded for several weeks before harvest, which increases the chlorophyll content and gives the leaves a vibrant green colour.
    • Harvesting: Only the youngest, most tender leaves are picked.
    • Steaming: The leaves are steamed to stop fermentation, preserving their colour and nutrients.
    • Drying and Grinding: The leaves are dried and ground into a fine powder using stone mills.
  2. Nutritional Benefits:
    • Antioxidants: Matcha is rich in catechins, an antioxidant believed to have cancer-fighting properties.
    • L-Theanine: This amino acid promotes relaxation and reduces stress without causing drowsiness.
    • Caffeine: Matcha contains more caffeine than regular green tea, providing a sustained energy boost without the jittery side effects often associated with coffee.
  3. Flavor Profile:
    • Umami: Matcha has a unique umami taste, which is savoury and slightly sweet.
    • Grassy and Earthy Notes: It also has a fresh, grassy flavour with hints of sweetness and a slightly bitter undertone.
  4. Preparation and Uses:
    • Traditional Tea Ceremony: In Japanese culture, matcha is prepared during a traditional tea ceremony. This ceremony involves whisking the powder with hot water using a bamboo whisk (chasen) until it becomes frothy.
    • Culinary Uses: Matcha is a flavour in various foods and beverages, including lattes, smoothies, ice cream, and baked goods.

By understanding matcha's unique qualities and cultural significance, you can appreciate why it has become a beloved beverage worldwide.
