A little history about Matcha: Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder that has been used for centuries in Japan as a ceremonial beverage. It has become an increasingly popular drink around the world due to its health benefits and energizing effects. However, much like fine wine, matcha can come in many different grades and quality levels so it's important to understand what you're actually buying before making your purchase.

At the upper tier, Ceremonial grade matcha is the highest quality available and will typically have very fine particles with a deep green color (sometimes called "jade"). Ceremonial grade tea has been traditionally used for centuries by Zen priests and legend has it that it was used to promote spiritual awakening.
