Description

This fine Matcha Megumi originates from Kagoshima, Southern Japan, and is of superior ceremonial quality.

The base of this Matcha is Tencha tea, a green tea that is specially grown for Matcha. 

Matcha Megumi is fine and full of flavour, with a slightly sweet touch and a distinct umami profile.

Megumi means 'blessing' in Japanese. And that is a perfect description of this tea.

Matcha Megumi: the ceremonial Japanese tea worth discovering

Matcha Megumi is a unique and precious tea produced in Japan. It is considered one of the most valuable and prestigious teas in the world. It is praised for its exceptional taste, refreshing aroma and powerful health benefits.

The production process of Matcha Megumi

The production process of Matcha Megumi is unique and requires a lot of time, attention and skill. It starts with selecting the very best tea leaves of the highest quality. These leaves are carefully selected and stored to avoid exposure to light, which can negatively affect the quality and taste of the tea.

Then the selected leaves are dried and powdered until they form a fine powder. This powder, Matcha, is then packaged and sold. The production process of Matcha Megumi is painstaking and time-consuming, but the result is a tea of exceptional quality and taste.

Tencha is used for the Matcha Megumi. The meaning of Tencha is 'ground tea'. This high-quality green tea has a cultivation process similar to that of another special Japanese tea, namely Gyokuro. Because Tencha is grown mainly for the production of Matcha, this tea itself is difficult to obtain, even in Japan.

History of Matcha Megumi

Matcha Megumi has a rich and interesting history dating back to the 12th century. It was originally produced and drunk by Zen monks as part of their meditation and concentration rituals. Over the years, Matcha Megumi became more and more known and loved by the wider population, and today it is drunk all over the world and praised for its taste and health benefits.

The many health benefits of ceremonial Japanese Matcha Megumi

In addition to its unique taste, ceremonial Japanese Matcha Megumi also offers some impressive health benefits. It is rich in antioxidants, including EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is known for its anti-cancer properties. Matcha also contains L-theanine, an amino acid that reduces stress and has a calming effect on the body.

Furthermore, matcha has also proven that it can speed up metabolism and promote fat burning. This makes it an excellent choice for those who want to lose weight.
