Difference Between Matcha and Powdered Green Tea
Let's make it simple. It is the difference in the tea that is the raw material. Matcha is powdered Tencha (tea leaves used for matcha), and Powdered Green Tea is Powdered Sencha (commonly drunk).
In the first place, Tencha is a dedicated furnace for steaming tea leaves picked in a covered garden (covering the tea plantation 20 days or more before harvesting the tea leaves, blocking sunlight, and condensing the umami ingredients to improve the color and taste). Tencha is the one that has been carefully dried and carefully selected, and Matcha is the one that is ground into powder.
Powdered green tea is made by steaming tea leaves that have grown and grown in the sunlight, without shading like tencha, and then gradually heating and kneading them to make sencha.
Matcha is rich in theanine, which is a delicious ingredient by stopping photosynthesis, while powdered green tea is rich in catechin by photosynthesis. Matcha is a little more expensive in terms of price because it takes time and effort to produce than others.
Our matcha is carefully cultivated and produced in our garden tea plantation in Kyoto Prefecture, and we carefully grind "Tencha" over time. Matcha, which is colorful and has good foaming, can be used as a light tea for the tea ceremony, easily mixed and drunk, or sweets such as cookies and cakes.
In addition, we have obtained overseas organic certification, and it has been very well received by EU customers who are in high demand for healthy foods for beauty and health.
Organic Powdered Green Tea
Our powdered green tea is manufactured by carefully crushing sencha and kabusecha, which are carefully cultivated and produced in our garden tea plantation in Kyoto Prefecture.
Tea served in Kyusu leaves about 70% of the tea leaves and is thrown away, but powdered green tea drinks whole tea leaves, so you can get 100% of nutrients, and it is rich in catechins, vitamins, and dietary fiber, and beauty. It is great for your health as well.
It is an environmentally friendly product because it can be easily made by simply adding hot water (or water), and no tea leaves are produced. You can easily enjoy each idea at any time, such as yogurt or tempura salt, as an accent for cooking and sweets.
To drink, add half a teaspoon (0.5g-0.8g) of powdered green tea to one cup of hot water (about 100cc) and stir until there are no lumps.
