Matcha Tea is a finely milled powder which has been used for centuries as far back as the Tang Dynasty, China (618-907 AD) and is still exceedingly popular in modern society throughout Asia.

Matcha Tea is made from shade-grown Green Tea leaves. The rich taste, initially sharp, followed by a prolonged sweetness, is made distinctive by the chlorophyll and amino acid components such as theanine and by the ceremonial preparation unique to Matcha Tea. Organic Matcha can be added to most foods such as cakes and sweets, smoothies & lattes or simply added with hot water to create a traditional Matcha Tea.

Matcha Tea is available to buy in Australia through Phyto-Therapy.
