This is a culinary grade matcha made from Assam. The terroir and the cultivar of Assamica results in a malty and sweet drink. The color is not a bright green like traditional sencha matcha from Japan, rather it is a Loden Green, reflecting Assams thicker leaf style. The flavor is perfect for a fresh morning cup, an afternoon pickup, a green tea latte, a nutrition shake, or a cooking. The result is a smooth drink with a malty and sweet taste with less bitter than Japanese culinary matcha

Matcha is a superb health drink as when you drink it, it provides all of the nutrition of the tea leaf directly. In a cup of tea, about 15% of the polyphenols make it into the water, but with a matcha you get 100% of them!
