Reasons why not all Japanese powdered teas out there are matcha
Read it in Spanish!
NOT ALL TEA POWDERS COMING FROM JAPAN ARE MATCHA
SO, WHAT ARE ALL THE OTHER POWDERED JAPANESE TEAS?
WHAT'S THE POINT OF HAVING SO MANY TYPES OF POWDERED TEA?
First of all, good matcha can have a very steep price due to its laborious processing method along with the quality of the leaves used. Some people don’t want, or cannot afford to drink matcha daily. But they would still like to take advantage of the multiple health benefits that drinking tea has to offer. Having any other type of powdered tea at hand is a good alternative. The water soluble components in tea such as vitamin C, catechin &caffeine are released in hot water. Insoluble components such as vitamin A (carotene) vitamin E & plant fiber can be obtained by drinking powdered teas since the whole leaf is consumed, not just the liquor minus the leaves. I wasn’t able to find a good study about this. I will update with a link if I do. Secondly, using high quality ceremonial grade matcha for cooking sounds crazy & isn’t cheap. By using other types of powdered teas we can obtain great results at a more affordable price.
