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.
50 grams = 50 drinks
