Matcha-do About Tea

Matcha is a Japanese ceremonial powdered green tea.  Matcha has special significance in Japan and is traditionally sipped from a traditional bowl and prepared in a Tea Ceremony called Chanoyu.  This  tea has a unique, creamy, sweet and rich oceanic taste.  Matcha is also one of the only types of teas where you ingest the leaf, thus providing larger health benefits than most other teas, like additional vitamin C and protein.
