OBTC MATCHA

What is Matcha? Matcha is a powdered green tea. While Matcha is commonly known as a Japanese green tea today, it is believed to have originated from China during the Tang Dynasty, from 618 to 907.

To make tea, the caked tea leaves were ground into a fine powder, and then mixed with salt, water, and sometimes other natural flavors, such as fruits and flowers.
