Our signature 'Ceremonial grade' matcha is exclusively blended for Matcha Moments© and only uses the tea leaves from the very first harvest of the year and only the two leaves at the tip of each new shoot are being hand-picked. This guarantees the use of only the youngest, greenest and most tender leaves for our highest quality matcha green tea.
In contrary to many other matcha providers that cover their plants with only one layer of shade, the tea leaves used for Matcha Moments© receive a double layer of shade, creating up to 95% darkness. This does require a much more intensive and careful cultivation of the tea plant but pushes the plants to produce an exceptional amount of Chlorophyll, L-Theanine and immunity-boosting antioxidants. It also gives the matcha its unique umami flavor profile.
After the destemming and deveining, the soft and sweet parts of the leaves are being very gently ground in a traditional stone mill into our vibrant green matcha powder. This time-consuming activity, which takes 45 minutes to grind 30 grams of matcha powder, is done very gently to avoid scorching of the leaves. The other benefit of stone-milling that is that the powder dissolves better in water.
