Matcha is made from Green Tea which is typically shade-grown and harvested in May, and the stems and veins are removed in processing. Then the tea buds and leaves are lightly steamed to prevent fermentation, thus developing the bright green color of the young tea leaves and sweet, vegetal flavor. This process inhibits the leaves from receiving vital nutrients and as a result, more chlorophyll is produced. You will get the sweet, vegetal smell to it; this comes from the amino acid called L-Theanine, again produced by the shade growing process. It is the L-Theanine which gives matcha nice, clean-drinking and green tea taste. The very top should have developing leaves that are soft and supple. This gives a finer texture to higher grades of matcha.

* Required Fields
I have enjoyed green tea for many years and thought it was about time I tried Matcha. As this was an addition to my usual order I did not know what to expect. What I got was another lovely option to the teas I already love. Initially I was not sure, but on my second cup I released it was superb. As I only wanted to try this tea I did not bothered with any of the accessories. I make it with the recommended amount and find that by the time the tea is ready to drink the excess powder has fallen to the bottom of the cup and I can happily drink the rest. If you like your green tea definitely one to try but make sure you try it a few times as initially it is a bit different. A great option.
It's amazing tea, I had tasted different matcha tea and this is amazing, excellent flavour.
I am new to Matcha, so I don't even know if I prepared this properly, especially considering that I used what I have at home, and not real equipment needed. Soup looks, tastes and smells like peas cream soup. Taste is fine, and it has some good, long lasting, sweet aftertaste. Still, it will take some time to get used to this tea.
Reply: The tea have many nutrient content, include the Vitamins, Minerals and Amino acids, of course, it still have low caffeine. It does not rely mainly on caffeine like coffee. That's why the tea have low caffeine, but it still have enough energy.
