Matcha green tea is prized in the Japanese ritual of the tea ceremony and its history dates back to imperial Japan, over hundred years ago. Matcha green tea powder is an excellent source of Vitamin A, which contributes to the normal function of the immune system and supports healthy skin. It is made from premium, finely-milled, ground leaves called Camellia sinensis, dried and stone-ground into a fine powder. When you consume matcha green tea powder, you are actually ingesting the whole leaf with all its nutrients. You can use matcha green tea powder to prepare tea, delicious appetizers, smoothies, energy bars, ice cream, or as an addition to cookies, cakes, flavoured pasta and so much more!
