Origin and Cultivation: Culinary matcha is harvested later in the growing season, mid-Summer, and is not ground into as fine a powder as ceremonial matcha power. The result is a robust and bold matcha that stands up well to other ingredients for lattes and baking.
Our matcha, both culinary and ceremonial, is cultivated from shade grown tencha* tea leaves and then stone ground into green tea powder at the same tea garden in Shizuoka, Japan.
*Tencha refers to the fluffy tea leaves which are minimally-processed and are purposely grown and prepared for matcha production. Tencha is what the leaves are called once they have been harvested, steamed, dried, and baked but have not been be stone-ground or finely milled yet. Once the tencha leaves have been finely ground into a fine powder, tencha transforms into the final product — matcha.
