The Matcha tea will have a different taste depending on when the green tea leaves have been harvested.
Two to four weeks before the harvesting time, the leaves are shaded to prevent direct sunlight exposure. This process results in a higher Chlorophyll concentration (which give the leaves their vibrant green colour), a sweet taste, and higher levels of theanine.
Hearthty Matcha is made from green tea leaves grown and harvested in the Uji region of Kyoto Prefecture, Japan. The leaves are GMO-free and gluten-free.
