As the story goes, Matcha green tea powder arrived in Japan from China via the Buddhist monk Zen Eisai. At that time, it was mainly used as a means of staying awake and concentrated after many hours of meditation.
Nowadays, it is appreciated for its vegetable flavour that is rich in chlorophyll, its mild and slightly bitter flavour with sweet notes. Matcha green tea stands out for its umami notes.

Unlike other teas in leaf form, Matcha tea is a finely ground powder. Its preparation also differs from any other infusion, as the water is not imbued with its flavour.
To prepare Matcha according to the Japanese tradition, it must be stirred in hot water at 80º with a chasen, a small bamboo whisk.
In the West, it is very popular on a morning and before doing exercise, especially among yoga enthusiasts.

Umami is the fifth flavour discovered in Japan at the start of the 20th century. “Umami” means as much as “pleasant and savory taste”, providing a pleasurable sensation.
A top-quality Matcha tea is recognised for its soft and smooth texture, but also for its pleasant aftertaste and sweet notes.
In Japanese, "cha" means tea and "ma" means powder. So the word Matcha literally translates as green tea powder.
It is part of traditional Japanese culture and is used in tea ceremonies as a symbol of peace, harmony and happiness.
