Matcha is a type of Japanese green tea prepared from the whole green tea leaf ground into a fine powder. Matcha tea is processed by being harvested and then promptly pan-fired to halt oxidation. The leaves are then cooled, rolled, and dried. The veins and stems are removed, and the leaves are stored for a few months to allow the flavour of the leaves to develop after which the leaves are placed in cooled rooms where they are slowly stone-ground into a fine powder. Matcha’s intricate processing is one of the reasons it is pricier than other teas.
