Green tea(Matcha) is very famous Japanese drink In the world
Green tea is green powdered tea. Soft and fresh top tea leaves are hand-picked, which are then steamed and dried in ro (a special furnace) to make tencha tea leaves. The stems and veins of tencha tea leaves are eliminated and further ground by so called "chausu" (a set of millstones for tea leaves) to make green powdered tea.
Several weeks prior to harvest in the Spring, farmers cover the tea plants with?bamboo mats?or?tarp, gradually reducing the amount of sunlight that reaches the plants. This step increases the chlorophyll content and turns the leaves dark green, giving matcha its?distinctgreen color.
After harvesting, the leaves are steamed and then air dried. Next, the leaves are sorted for grade, and then?destemmed?and?deveined. At this stage, the leaves become tencha, the?precursor?to matcha. The tencha is then?ground?and becomes matcha.
