Production

Macha tea has been produced in Japan for almost a thousand years!

It is an ancient art that was brought to Japan from China and for centuries it was the drink of bhuddist monks, royalty and the rich.

The green tea trees are shaded by straw mats when production begins, so that the leaves have to produce more chlorophyll to absorb sunlight. This causes the tea leaves to gain a deep green color, a lot more nutrients and a more complex flavor.

These tea leaves are then picked, dried and pounded into a thin powder. Picking the tea leaves at the top of the plant produces the purest, sweetest macha. We at uVernaldistribute only this high quality product, so when you drink our macha you know you are consuming the best, sweetest quality of macha there is.
