Matcha Quality checklist : Matcha is not the same as powdered green tea.

Matcha is specifically different from powdered green tea.

There are some points to find real authentic matcha.

  • Can you trust the tea distributor?
  • Is the product made in Japan? - very important
  • Growing process: shade grown over 20-25 days
  • Best harvest time: Early-mid May first harvest is the best (First flush)
  • Properly processed Tencha (tea leaves that make matcha) is used - if Tencha is not used, it is not matcha
  • Stone grounded - low speed at 30-40g per hour
  • Be aware of the price - cheap "matcha" might not actually be proper matcha. Matcha is a premium product and is quite expensive.
