Matcha FAQ

Whether you’re brand new or a seasoned matcha connoisseur, we know you’ll find something new and interesting about the wonderful world of matcha tea right here.

What is Matcha

Matcha tea is powdered green tea that is uniquely grown, harvested and processed. Just one cup of high quality matcha contains the nutrient value of 10 cups of regular green tea.

The best matcha is made in Japan from young, shade-grown tea leaves that are hand-picked, lightly steamed, air-dried and slowly stone-ground into an ultra fine powder.

How Much Matcha Per Cup

Just one-half teaspoon of matcha powder per cup provides all the health benefits of matcha tea. Make a thin paste with your matcha powder and a small amount of hot (but not boiling) water. Then add more water as desired, 8-12 oz. For a traditional matcha tea, make the same thin paste then add 2 oz of hot water and whisk until bubbles appear on the surface, then add more water as desired. If you like your Matcha tea a little stronger use 1 tsp of powder. Check out our How To Make Matcha Tea video.
