Matcha is finely ground green tea leaf powder and is the most prized amongst Japanese teas. It has been drunk as part of the tea ceremony for 900 years as well as by Buddhist monks during long days of meditation.
This very concentrated form of green tea is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every last bit of goodness.

Although making a cup of tea may seem like a really simple thing, making a really good cup of tea is an art!
Qualities: With a slightly grassy aroma and deep rich taste, sencha is the classic Japanese green tea. At Clearspring we harvest the tender first of the season leaves, which are known to be the best due to their brighter colour and gentler, slightly sweeter flavour.
Quantities: 1 teabag per person
Water temperature: 70-90°C - brewing at this temperature will stop the tea from becoming bitter while allowing the full flavour of the tea to come out.
Brewing time: 1-2 minutes
Store in a cool, dry place
In the hills around Kyoto, the third generation of the Nagata family use special organic methods, known as Nature Farming, to produce a range of exquisite green teas for Clearspring.
The ancient farming approach used by the Nagatas builds up soil vitality by maintaining a semi-wild environment, where the plants are not overly protected and gain nourishment from repeated applications of compost made from tea clippings and dried leaves, which together with regular mulching helps control weed growth and maintain soil moisture.
Whilst most tea farmers spray their plants with pesticides and herbicides 15-20 times a year, the Nagatas' tea bushes have a vigour that enables them to thrive without chemical inputs.
The Nagatas' yields may be lower than average but their plants have far less mould and blight. They remain productive for up to 40 years, twice as long as the typical tea bush treated with chemicals.
As well as growing tea, the Nagatas undertake the skilful blanching, drying and roasting processes to bring out the unique flavours of each individual blend.
I drink gallons of this tea to keep alert through long, arduous night shifts, and it certainly does the trick for me. Great that the tea bags are now compostable, though I agree with the other reviewer that the taste is less vivid since they changed. There's also a lot of wasted space in the cartons. Perhaps this could be remedied by changing the pack size to 25 or 30 tea bags? Regardless, this is a wonderful product.
Love this Matcha Sencha although I must say I prefered the old packaging by far - it kept better, had less waste, made for a smaller package easy to transport and somehow more intense flavour than the current one, which is not as tasty.
Lovely smooth and refreshing. I would certainly recommend! Good service and well packaged.
