I'd matcha rather be sitting on a patio but this will do. Hope you're making today a great one!
Unlike traditional tea, matcha green tea is a powder not a loose leaf or tea bag like we are use to seeing. Something I’ve recently learned and thought would be a good tip to share is how to tell what “grade” of matcha tea you are drinking. There are several different “grades” of matcha green tea powder that can be identified by; the colour, texture, stems or leaves, prolonged oxygen exposure, and what processing method was used. Easy enough right? What if I simplified it and gave you the names of the two different grades I use called Ceremonial and a culinary grade.
