    Leopard Fine Culinary Grade is a genuine high quality matcha. It is organically grown in Kagoshima Prefecture by a ninth-generation family-owned tea estate that has accumulated over 250 years of artisan expertise. Use it to make a healthy breakfast, smoothies and lattes but can also be served in the traditional way with hot water.
    METHOD: The tea leaves are grown under shade for three weeks before the first flush of spring, leaves are hand picked, then powdered using traditional granite stone mills. The “First Flush of Spring” is the first harvest of the year, and the leaves contain three times more L-theanine than the second or summer harvest. Leopard Matcha contains high levels of antioxidants and amino acids.
    COLOR: the 20 days of shade force the plant to overproduce chlorophyll, which is what makes the tea a vibrant emerald green. Low quality matcha is pale and yellowish. TEXTURE: Leopard Matcha is milled using granite stone mills. The result is a silky texture.
