What is matcha?

Matcha is a fine powder made by grinding high-quality green tea leaves. What sets it apart is its growing process: the plants are shaded for the final weeks before harvest to increase their chlorophyll content, giving matcha its vibrant green color. Organic matcha ensures that the tea has been grown without pesticides or chemicals, preserving its purity. To discover our selection of high quality matcha, visit our Keia Tea online store.
