How to Make Matcha at Home with Step by Step Pictures. Refreshing matcha tea made with matcha powder which is good for health.
Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves, traditionally consumed in East Asia. It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants used for matcha are shade-grown for three to four weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed during processing.
During shaded growth, the plant Camellia sinensis produces more theanine and caffeine. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, as it is suspended in a liquid, typically water or milk.

How to Make Matcha
East Asians have traditionally consumed matcha, a finely ground powder made from specially grown and processed green tea leaves. Before harvest, matcha green tea plants are shade-grown for three to four weeks. The stems and veins are then cut out during processing. When grown in shade, Camellia sinensis yields more theanine and caffeine. Because matcha powder is suspended in a liquid, usually water or milk, it is consumed differently than tea leaves or tea bags.

What happens if you drink matcha everyday?
Drinking matcha on a daily basis produces a noticeable mood boost, optimised all-day energy, and potential benefits such as weight loss, heart health, lower blood pressure, metabolism balance, and even cancer-fighting properties.
Where did Matcha green tea originate?
Green tea dates back to the 8th century in China, and the method of making powdered tea from steam-prepared dried tea leaves became popular in the 12th century. Matcha was discovered and brought to Japan at that time by a Buddhist monk named Myoan Eisai.
Is matcha sweet or bitter?
Matcha has a flavour that is bright, vegetal, and slightly bitter, with hints of sweetness and umami. High-quality ceremonial grade matcha can be consumed on its own, whereas culinary grade matcha can be mixed into lattes, smoothies, and other beverages.
