Matcha is a finely ground tea powder, often used in the Japanese tea ceremony. After harvest, the tea leaves are steamed and processed into tencha. The tencha is then milled into the powder form. Because you consume the entire tea leaf when you drink matcha powder, you receive greater benefits: by volume, it has higher concentrations of antioxidants, minerals and vitamins.
