What is Matcha?
The process of producing matcha dates back all the way to China’s Tang Dynasty (618-907), when the leaves were steamed prior to being molded into bricks for use in trade and storage. From these bricks, the tea leaves were roasted and ground into a fine powder. By the early 1100s, thanks to Buddhist monk Eisai, Zen monasteries were enjoying matcha for ceremonial and health benefits. Basically, practitioners drank matcha to keep awake during long meditations, but soon after starting this ritual, other benefits emerged. Today, some of the longest living humans on earth regularly consume matcha.
Today’s matcha is not such a far cry from what our ancient friends enjoyed in Asia. Its popularity is soaring, and can be found today in a wide array of products, providing delicious ways to reap the many benefits.

Making a Proper Cup of Matcha
First, make sure never to use boiling water when preparing your tea; recommended temperature is: 160°-170°. Spoon 1/2 teaspoon into your cup, and add just a tablespoon of hot water. With the spoon, mix completely, removing all lumps. Next, add the remaining hot water, and stir. You can also enjoy cold by adding cool or ice water instead of hot water.
