The history of Matcha dates back about 800 years. Matcha was originally used as medicine for people who wished for perpetual youth and longevity. The only thing that is accurate  about the health benefits of Matcha is that even though it does offer many health benefits, it does not offset poor  life habits like smoking, eating too many sweets, drinking alcohol to excess, too little physical exercise, etc.   From its history, we may infer that Matcha can contribute much to your good health.

What is culinary / cooking grade Matcha? Posted on 4 Jun 00:31 , 0 comments

There is no definition for culinary / cooking grade Matcha. Conscientious tea companies are using low grade Tencha, which is not suitable for drinking, to make culinary grade Matcha by either stone mill or machine. Therefore, the price of the tea is much cheaper than authentic high grade Matcha. In Japan it is said that only one third of Matcha (including culinary / cooking grade Matcha) is made from Tencha. So what is the left of them? They are green tea powder made from Sencha (most common Japanese green tea). Therefore they are not Matcha technically.
