You have probably spotted matcha popping up everywhere lately, from the menu at your local coffee shop to your favourite frozen desserts.
But what is matcha exactly? And what are the benefits?
Matcha is a variety of green tea, but it is grown differently. The leaves are covered for 20 – 30 days before harvesting, which boosts the plant’s chlorophyll and gives it that distinctive electric green colour. The resulting tea leaves are chock full of nutrients—and flavour.
