40g First harvest: Best flavor - smallest and most delicate leaves used (best for drinking straight matcha)
40g Second harvest: More mature leaves and thus slightly more bitter and astringent compounds used. Not noticeable if using to make lattes or cold brew or other drink recipes.
Wild Matcha is a fine powder made from stone-ground green tea leaves. Instead of infusing whole leaves in water— and then discarding—matcha is whisked into water (or other recipe) and consumed whole.
By ingesting the entire tea leaf, you get 100% of the nutrients locked deep inside the green tea leaves. This is why one serving of Wild Matcha is equal to 10 glasses of regular brewed green tea in total nutritional value!
Matcha aids in weight loss, detoxes the body, promotes overall health and fights inflammation. It is also a healthy way to get sustained energy--the caffeine in matcha is slowly released over a period of 4-6 hours.
You can enjoy Wild Matcha hot or cold, in smoothies or lattes. (If you want a matcha you can bake with, we recommend our Wild Matcha #2 Culinary Grade matcha.)
