Matcha Magic: The Shade-Grown Secret of Vibrant Kato Matcha

In the matcha-dedicated fields of Uji, Kyoto, a traditional process unfolds, creating the matcha that's not just a tea but an elixir for the senses. The secret behind the vibrancy and vitality of Kato Matcha lies in its shade-grown heritage, a method as old as the hills it hails from. Join us in celebrating the magic of matcha and its journey from a shaded leaf to a cup of Kato Matcha splendour.

 

Kato Matcha : The Journey from Farm to Cup

Matcha Under Cover: Crafting the Perfect Shade of Green

Matcha's quality is painted in its colour – a deep, inviting green that promises unparalleled taste and health benefits. Shade-growing our Kato Matcha increases chlorophyll content, not only giving Kato Matcha its signature colour but also enhancing the L-Theanine levels, the amino acid responsible for matcha’s unique umami flavour and relaxing effects.

 

Matcha Antioxidants: The Green Guardians

Kato Matcha isn’t just about sipping; it’s about nourishing. The shade-grown method intensifies the antioxidants, including catechins like EGCG, found abundantly in every scoop of Kato Matcha. These antioxidants make Kato Matcha a guardian of your well-being, offering protection against oxidative stress and supporting a health-conscious lifestyle.

 

Matcha Mastery: From Tencha to Kato Matcha

Our Kato Matcha is more than just ground tea leaves; it's a result of meticulous craftsmanship. Once the Tencha leaves have been steamed and air-dried, they’re carefully destemmed and stone-ground. This produces the matcha powder known for its fine texture and rich flavour, the hallmarks of genuine Kato Matcha.

 

Conclusion:

Matcha lovers, rejoice in the knowledge that every cup of Kato Matcha is steeped in tradition and quality. With each sip of Kato Matcha, you're tasting the rich history of Uji's shade-grown matcha, a method perfected to bring you a matcha experience that's as beneficial to your health as it is delightful to your taste buds. Kato Matcha is more than a tea – it's a tradition, it's wellness, it's matcha at its best.
