matcha
Matcha, the focal point of the Japanese Tea Ceremony, is a fine powder made by grinding green tea leaves. Only the finest, young, shade-grown gyokuro tea leaves are used to create matcha. The leaves are plucked and laid out flat to dry. Veins are removed and the leaves, now called tencha, are carefully ground in granite mills until they become the precious powder. Easy preparation is achieved by placing 1 teaspoon of matcha per cup (or to taste) in a cup, adding a few drops of hot water (160-180F) and stirring with a spoon until a paste forms. Add the rest of the water and stir.

Our matcha is a Samidori cultivar from Uji, Japan. It is a high-grade Spring (first harvest) tea. The 2oz tin will make about 24 8-ounce servings.

Lore

The famous powdered green tea of the Japanese tea ceremony, matcha is made in several steps. First, the tender young leaves of the Gyuokuro plant are plucked. Then, they are made into tencha, whereby the veins of each leaf is removed and discarded. The remaining leaf is laid out flat to be dried. The final step is to take the dried tencha and grind them in specially created granite mills until they’re a silky fine powder. In chanoyu, guests often show their pleasure to the host by drinking a cup in three dedicated full sips.

Can anyone offer information about how many cups the 2 oz. tin will make assuming 1 tsp per cup? I am thinking about buying it but a little skittish since it's so expensive.

Has this tea been tested for lead? I understand that matcha often has many times the levels of lead compared to other teas.

I just purchased a 16oz bag and it arrived. The packaging states the tea is from China, India or South Africa. The statement above reveals 'Our matcha comes from Uji, Kyoto'. Japan is not mentioned on my package. I do want tea from China due to risk of l
