What makes a good matcha tea pure?
You may have wondered how to recognize a good matcha tea.
Organic quality is very important. Because with Matcha tea powder you are consuming the whole leaf - the leaves should only contain valuable vital substances and no harmful substances.
That's why we pay strict attention to the organic quality of all ingredients, which are checked by independent control bodies.
By bottling in our in-house factory, we can also ensure that our Matcha teas are free of allergens.
Color is also an important quality feature. A good matcha tea has a beautiful light green to jade green color. This is due to the high chlorophyll content that is produced in the leaves when grown properly.
In addition to the cultivation of the tea, the further processing is also important for the quality.
The leaves should be gently dried and ground as finely as possible.
The taste of pure matcha tea
Matcha tea pure - in a good quality like our premium organic matcha - is characterized by a mild, slightly nutty, fresh taste. The pure matcha powder even has a slightly sweet taste of its own. It smells pleasantly aromatic. When drinking, it develops a delicate, bitter aroma, which does not stand out, but only underlines the taste.
The ingredients of matcha tea powder
Matcha tea powder pure is characterized by many valuable ingredients. This includes:
- Lots of vitamins and minerals
- A high concentration of catechins as antioxidants such as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate)
- L-theanine and other important amino acids
- bitter substances
All of these ingredients mean that matcha tea has such a positive effect on our organism.
As a healthy pick-me-up, matcha tea is much gentler than coffee and hardly causes any side effects. Due to the special combination of ingredients, Matcha stimulates and calms at the same time. This relaxed alertness promotes concentration and performance.
The matcha powder also helps to strengthen the immune system, protects against free radicals and can have a supportive effect on many ailments and processes, for example diabetes and weight loss programs.
Different quality levels of pure matcha tea
With matcha tea pure, there are different quality levels for which there are no fixed categories.
Some providers recommend the simplest, somewhat harsher quality levels for cooking. At Matchatto we have a very tasty premium quality that you can enjoy both pure and in mixed drinks or innovative recipes.
The highest quality level for matcha tea is the ceremonial quality. Ceremony quality matcha tea powder is traditionally finely ground in granite stone mills. Only the flesh of the tea leaves without veins or stalks is used for this. It has a bright green color and a uniquely sweet taste.
It is suitable for everyday use, if you want to treat yourself to something special, or for your own little tea ceremony.
The ceremonial matcha tea is also ideal for yoga studios that want to offer something unique.
We now also offer Matcha in ceremonial quality under Matcha-Pur. You can now order Matcha Pure or our Ceremony Matcha here in the online shop.
