We invite you to sip the fresh, springtime-grassy flavor of this jade hued cup. This tea's smooth character makes it a good partner with sweet or savory foods. Powdery on Purpose: As you open this tin, you may notice a faint green cloud, a wisp of powder. This is the beauty of Japanese matcha. Allow us to explain: Matcha comes from gyokuro, a green tea that lives under shade three weeks before harvest. Its pure dried leaves, minus their fine veins and stems, are then ground into a find powder, almost the consistency of talc. This powder, which seeps a bit from our tea bags and finds its way to the bottom of your cup, is meant to be consumed - just as in the Japanese tea ceremony. With it, you are sipping the healthful antioxidant benefits of double green matcha tea. Packaged in USA.
