Matcha Production Process:
For our matcha, we harvest our own tea leaves from Wazuka, Kyoto. From harvest, we immediately steam and dry the tea leaves to prevent the leaves from getting fermented/oxidized. We then remove the stems and the veins and grind the dried leaves (called Tencha) into fine matcha powder.
