Matcha is specially grown green tea leaves that are grown under a special covering method to protect them from the sun to accumulate more chlorophyll and produce a rich, dark green color. The leaves are carefully collected and ground with stone mills. It contains caffeine, but its strength depends on the preparation method. The higher the temperature of the water, the more caffeine the tea releases. Therefore, when preparing with hot water at 80 degrees, the tea will have a stronger, bitter taste, and if you want a milder sweet drink, prepare with water at a temperature of 60 degrees.
Matcha is rich in: antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fiber.

Matcha powder is sensitive to environmental influences, so it should be stored in a dry, cool place, possibly in the refrigerator.
Preparing a hot drink: it is best to prepare tea in a special bowl and with a bamboo whisk. First, heat the container, add the powder and pour a small amount of water prepared for tea, beat with a whisk until there are no lumps and pour the rest of the water. One cup requires 3 g (1 teaspoon) of tea powder. First, mix the powder with a small amount of cold water, then add hot water and whisk vigorously with a whisk.
