What is matcha and where does it come from?
Matcha is essentially a very concentrated, powdered form of green or white tea. Because of the way it's grown and processed, this means that it's packed full of essential vitamins and minerals. Only by consuming the tea leaves whole, does our body get the maximum benefit from this "super tea".
Miracle Matcha starts life in a high-altitude Rainforest Alliance, Fair Trade accredited tea plantation over 6000 feet above the Kenyan Rift Valley. This unique location, where the air quality and sunlight are exceptional, provides the ideal environment for the plant to thrive. The youngest leaves and buds from the white tea plants are handpicked to ensure only the highest grade matcha makes it into our products. Importantly, no pesticides or herbicides are used, so the Miracle Matcha range is chemical free.
Now begins the unique and ancient 'matcha' processing technique. The tea leaves are naturally dried and ground to a fine powder using a stone-milling process to retain all of its anti-oxidant goodness.
