Firsd Tea’s OCG025 Organic Matcha #2 is a finely milled green tea from Zhejiang Province, China. Matcha was originally used in ancient Chinese tea ceremonies, and was later introduced to Japan. Culinary-grade matcha is used as a natural ingredient for flavoring and coloring foods and beverages.
OCG025 Organic Matcha #2 is made from tencha leaf- green tea leaves specially shade-grown for a defined period. Shading the plants increases chlorophyll content, prevents development of tannins, and enhances the dark emerald-green color of the fresh leaves. Tencha is laid out flat to dry and then partially rolled. It can then be de-veined, de-stemmed, and milled to the fine, bright green powder known as matcha. It can take up to one hour to mill 40 grams of matcha.
