What the Matcha?!

Today, we're excited to talk about one of our most popular menu items - ceremonial grade matcha tea. If you're a fan of matcha, you're in for a treat. If you're new to the world of matcha, buckle up because you're about to be introduced to one of the most delicious and nutritious beverages out there.

But before we dive into the deliciousness of matcha, let's first answer the question on everyone's minds - what is ceremonial grade matcha, and where does it come from?

Ceremonial grade matcha is a type of green tea that is grown and produced in Japan. The tea leaves are grown in the shade for the last few weeks of their growth cycle, which increases the chlorophyll content and gives the leaves a bright green color. The leaves are then hand-picked and the stems and veins are removed. The remaining leaves are then ground into a fine powder using stone grinders. This powder is what we know as ceremonial grade matcha.

Now, let's talk about how ceremonial grade matcha is harvested and produced. The process is quite labor intensive and requires a lot of skill and attention to detail.

First, the tea leaves are hand-picked by skilled tea farmers. Only the top-quality leaves are selected for ceremonial grade matcha. The leaves are then steamed to preserve their color and flavor and to make them easier to de-vein and de-stem.

Next, the leaves are dried and sorted according to their quality. The highest quality leaves are reserved for ceremonial grade matcha, while the lower quality leaves are used for other types of matcha or green tea.

Once the leaves have been sorted, they are ground into a fine powder using stone grinders. This process can take hours, as the grinders must be turned by hand and the temperature must be carefully controlled to ensure that the delicate flavors and nutrients of the matcha are preserved.

The resulting powder is then sifted to remove any larger pieces or impurities. The final product is a bright green, fine powder that is rich in flavor and nutrients.

So, why go through all this trouble to produce ceremonial grade matcha? The answer is simple - it's the highest quality matcha you can find. The careful cultivation and production process results in a matcha that is rich in flavor, nutrients, and antioxidants. It's also a great source of energy and can help improve focus and concentration.

If you're a fan of matcha, we highly recommend giving ceremonial grade matcha a try. At Comoncy Cafe, we offer a variety of matcha beverages, including lattes, smoothies, and iced teas. Stop by and give one a try, or try making your own matcha at home using ceremonial grade matcha powder. Trust us, your taste buds (and your body) will thank you.

So, the next time you're at Comoncy Cafe and you see matcha on the menu, don't be afraid to give it a try. Who knows, you might just fall in love with this delicious and nutritious beverage. Sip, bite, enjoy!
