There are several grades of matcha. An educated matchaholic knows that the best matcha grows in Japan, not China and they understand the difference in the grades. The brighter green the matcha, the higher the quality as it is packed with more amino acids. A brighter matcha will also provide for better taste. Even if you purchase culinary matcha to use in food cooking, it is still important to have quality matcha or there truly is no point in consuming the matcha.
Whole Leaf Matcha is produced in the Uji region in the heart of Kyoto in Japan. The Uji region is perfect for growing tea leaves due to its favorable climate, fresh water and fertile soil. This helps produce green tea leaves that have more nutrients than those found in any other region of Japan.
