Matcha Green Tea Powder

The Japanese green tea called matcha, is traditionally used in tea ceremonies. It is an unfermented tea, unlike its close sister, black tea, which is ground into a fine powder, then mixed with water below the boiling point and stirred with a bamboo whisk. There is evidence that there is more antioxidants in this kind of green tea than more common kinds of green tea consumed by many North Americans. Matcha is what is used in many of the superior green tea baked goods.
