Japanese Maccha (or Matcha) is the most exclusive and legendary of green teas and consists of a ground powder which is whisked into a frothy beverage that you drink without filtering .The foam is a bright avocado green, while the drink itself is rather more dark green. Generally, the best-quality Maccha teas are light and sweet, while the darker ones are slightly more bitter. The taste is algal and vegetal. Since you also drink the ground tea leaves themselves, you consume larger doses of vitamins, minerals, polyphenols and caffeine.
