Matcha is a one-of-a-kind green tea. First, it comes in the form of a very fine powder, since its leaves are crushed between two millstones after being rolled and dried.

Il possède une incroyable couleur verte, parce que les théiers dont il est issu ont été couverts quelques semaines avant la récolte et que, ainsi privées de lumière, leurs feuilles ont produit davantage de chlorophylle pour réaliser leur photosynthèse.

Above all, matcha is the only tea whose entire leaf is absorbed by the water.
We are thus tasting its very substance, resulting in a pure tea whose elements are unaffected.
Matcha is a pure delight that boasts a very high vitamin
and mineral content.
