This high-quality matcha is used for a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, but is also a great way to start your morning or provide a pick-me-up at anytime of day. Matcha is made of fine young tea leaves, shaded for 2-3 weeks, then plucked, heated, dried, and ground into a powder. The shading raises the chlorophyll content, giving the dried powder its deep green color. Comes in 1 ounce tin. Ingredients: Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea from Nishio, Japan.
