About Maccha Variety
Maccha is powdered green tea traditionally used for the Japanese tea ceremony. Using the leaves from tea bushes grown in the shade just like Gyokuro, the tea is very finely grounded by special stone mills. Lighter green Maccha is considered better quality and is sweeter. Darker green Maccha tends to be a little bitter. Maccha is often used for flavoring sweets.
Water: 203 F
