About Matcha Tea - Matcha is derived from shade grown tea leaves and stone ground into an ultra fine, green powder. The brilliant flavor of matcha is attributed to sweetness from naturally occurring sugars, savor from the amino acid L-theanine, and bitterness due to the antioxidants.

Health Benefits
