Here at PureChimp we love our daily dose of Matcha Tea and live by the motto that “One serving of Matcha a day keeps the doctor away!”
But how can you tell the difference between a good quality brew and one that may not be quite as good for you?
How to tell if your Matcha tea is of the best quality?
High quality powder will give a creamy taste & be smoother than the low quality alternative. The lower grade Matcha may be coarse or gritty during drinking which isn’t going to lead to the very best Matcha experience possible! Also low quality matcha tends to be bitter.
How can you be sure that you are going to have the very best in Matcha?
The first place to look should always be the origins of the powder. Matcha that comes from Japan tends to be the very best in quality as this is where it originates so whilst there are options from China and Taiwan readily available to buy, the homeland of Matcha should always be your first choice.
The colour test
Colour is also very important when selecting your Matcha. You will want to select a product that is vibrant green. This is because the leaves used in Matcha are grown in the shade which leads them to produce more chlorophyll, leading to the bright green colour. Those leaves that have not been properly shaded or older will tend to have a yellow or even brown hue to them. This will lead to a poorer quality brew!
So there you have it, everything you need to know about buying the right Matcha! All you need to do now is find a high quality powder and you can discover the amazing benefits of this wonderful green drink!
