The Story

This matcha with pine-like colour is shade-grown under a framework that is draped over by layers of black gauze.

Growing matcha in the dark improves the texture and colour of the tea as by avoiding exposure to the sun. The leaves change its structure to try to absorb more sunlight by becoming broader and thinner, which allows the harvested leaves to be easily grounded into a fine powder.
