Benefits for matcha lovers: a detailed explanation of matcha from the manufacturer
Mocha, also known as matcha in Japan, originated in the Wei and Jin Dynasties of China. The practice is to collect tender tea leaves in spring, steam them, and make cake tea (ie, group tea) for preservation. When it is time to eat, first bake and dry the cake tea on the fire, then grind it into powder with a natural stone mill, then pour it into a tea bowl and pour it into boiling water, stir the tea water in the bowl with a teapot to make it foam, and it is ready to drink.
The fresh tea leaves that are picked are dried and dried on the same day, using the steam-fixing method. Studies have shown that in the process of steaming, the oxides such as cis-3-hexenol, cis-3-hexene acetate, and linalool in tea increase greatly, and a large amount of A-ionone, B-ionone, and other ionone compounds, the precursors of these aroma components are carotenoids, which constitute the special aroma and taste of Matcha. Therefore, the tea covered with cultivated green tea and steam-fixed not only has a special aroma but also has a green color and a more delicious taste.
Raw material requirements
Matcha has high-quality requirements for raw materials, requiring the use of tea leaves with high amino acid, protein and chlorophyll content, and requiring low caffeine content in the raw materials. Before picking, there are requirements for the picking time and leaf size of fresh tea leaves. The production time of matcha is short, only about 50 days. Using the high-quality fresh tea leaves produced in April and May as raw materials, the quality of the matcha produced is the best. The tree species of the tea leaves used in the processing of matcha is also very particular. This tea tree is cultivated by clonal propagation technology, which ensures the purity of the tea tree variety. In addition, in order to ensure the quality of fresh leaves, during the planting process, the staff also needs to shade the tea trees to prevent heatstroke. The tea produced in this way is called Fuxia tea. Matcha is made from Fuxia tea.
