What Is Matcha Green Tea Powder?

Matcha PowderI had never heard of matcha green tea powder before so I was curious. What is matcha tea and what makes it different from other green teas? So I did some research.

With most teas, green or otherwise, you only drink the water that the leaves have¬†steeped in. You don’t actually consume the leaves. With matcha green tea you actually consume the leaves, so you get a lot more of the nutritional benefit. Since you are actually drinking the tea plant, it doesn’t come as whole leaves in a little bag. It comes as a powder.
