WHAT IS MATCHA? | Everything you need to know about Green Tea Matcha
The word "matcha" means "ground tea" in Japanese.
Matcha is made by slowly grinding the entire green tea leaf into a powder, which allows it to be easily added to drink or recipe.
Compared to traditional green tea that uses water to extract nutrition from tea leaves, matcha is "eaten" whole.
By ingesting the entire tea leaf, you get far more nutrition than traditional green tea--matcha is like drinking 10 cups of brewed green tea!
