The specially grown green tea leaves are shaeded, dried and then milled by granite stone mills into an ultra-fine powder. Packed with upto 15 times the antioxidants of regular green tea Matcha is marvellously good for you as well as tasting great. Matcha has been drunk by Zen Buddhist monks and Japanese emperors for over 800 years - If it's good enough for emperors we're sure you'll like it too.
