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.
