Powdered Green Tea

Matcha is made from tencha leaves that have been steamed and dried before being ground to a fine, bright green powder. Matcha is the tea used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony, and has had ritual significance for centuries. Most famously produced in the Uji region of Kyoto, the highest grade matcha has a rich flavour and pronounced sweetness. Matcha powder can also be used as an ingredient in ice cream, soba noodles and wagashi (Japanese sweets).
