What is Matcha Tea?

It is made with shade-grown tea leaves. It’s exactly what it sounds like - tea leaves grown under the shade and not under the sun like others. Here at Portfolio Coffee, you get matcha tea powder that you can make into a wonderful beverage or use as an ingredient for other matcha treats! 

Matcha can also come in the form of loose, tencha leaves. That’s matcha before it was ground. The looser tea results in a more mellow taste and colour. Matcha tea powder, on the other hand, can have a rich taste and creamy texture. Matcha has a distinctly grassy taste, too. 

Benefits of Matcha Tea

Like a lot of teas, matcha is a healthful drink. It’s rich in antioxidants! It’s also a wonderful alternative to coffee as it contains caffeine. Other benefits of matcha tea are that it may have heart-healthy and weight-loss benefits. It may even lower your blood pressure and balance your metabolism. 

Since it comes as a powder, some may not know how to make matcha tea! It’s not as simple as placing some in a bag and letting it steep. One thing to note is that it may clump as you prepare it. So, if you plan to make a mucha matcha, consider getting a matcha whisk. Otherwise, a teaspoon or similar will work just fine. Get your cup and add a bit of hot water to your powder  and give it a stir until it becomes a paste-like consistency. Once done, add hot water or milk and enjoy!
