What is matcha?

Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves from Japan. It has a beautiful green color, sweet grassy aroma, and a rich umami taste. It’s also higher in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants than steeped green tea because you are consuming the whole tea leaf.

What I love about matcha is that not only does it taste good, it also makes you feel good, and it’s loaded with health benefits. Matcha has a smooth and fresh grassy flavor with a sweet and nutty undertone. It’s rich in L-theanine, a rare amino acid that promotes a state of relaxation and well-being within your mind. L-theanine creates alpha waves, which lead to a state of relaxed mental alertness. When you consume matcha, you are getting unparalleled amounts of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants compared to any other drinks or foods.

I’ve tried many different brands of matcha over the years, and I can honestly say that Matcha.com is by far superior. In trying both the Organic Chef’s Choice for this ice cream recipe and the Tenchi Organic for drinking, I found that the color is more vibrant and the taste is naturally sweeter and aromatic compared to the others I’ve tried.
