Matcha - Powdered Japanese green tea.
This organic matcha hails from Uji, the oldest tea region in Japan, famed for its matcha and gyokuro. Matcha is powdered green tea of the finest variety, only harvested once every year. The tea plant is covered before the new leaves grow, causing the plant to develop extra foliage.
Matcha is rich in vitamin C and antioxidants.

A Japanese tea ceremony involves a range of accessories, like a Chawan - an earthenware bowl for whisking the Macha, a Chasen - a bamboo whisk and a Chasaku, a measuring spoon voor Matcha. Don't forget the Chasen-oki, a porcelain rest on which you place the Chasen for drying. You can also order the complete Matchaset.
