Matcha is a special type of green tea obtained from Camelia sinensis that is mainly cultivated and produced in Japan and is currently considered the healthiest green tea.
It has been used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies for nearly a millennium.
The leaves of this tea are protected from the sun in the last weeks of its growth, increasing the chlorophyll content and creating a stunning green color.
Only the finest tea buds are picked and dried and then their leaves are carefully ground with stone wheels to produce a fine powder.
The powder can then be used to prepare an antioxidant-rich sparkling green tea or used in recipes such as smoothies or baking.
Unlike teas drunk in leaves, this Matcha tea, as it is in fine powder, is not strained before consumption, and this allows us to consume the entire leaf, thus making the effect of Matcha tea more potent and nutritious than other varieties of tea consumed still in leaf. In fact, only 1/2 teaspoon is needed to make a traditional cup of Matcha.

Just Vegan is an independent web store bringing vegan affordable goods to people and other animals all over the world.
We're always searching for products that are best for your health, less damaging for the environment and more ethical.
As an independent store we have no ties with any brands and will dynamically continue to replace products by others that are better and offer further ethical and environmental advances. This fits with our no compromise policy.
We welcome all your feedback, including warning us of any mistake or lack of information on the website and informing us of any ethical issues with a company or product we sell.
How we choose the products we sell:
* Must be vegan and as such not tested on animals
* Foods must not have hydrogenated fat or palm even if organic and RSPO certified. Although we reject palmitic acid based soaps, some personal hygiene and cosmetic products may have palm derivatives as the quantities are usually minimal and it's a difficult task to know if some ingredients are palm derived or not
Products without the "Palm free" label don't necessarily contain a palm derivative. It might be the case that we still haven't found out if any of the ingredients is derived from palm.
* Preference for organic
* Less sugars, mainly cane sugar
* Preference for social responsibility certified, like Fairtrade
* Less food miles
* Less packaging
With all these attributes being considered we take into account the opinion of our customers about the products' taste and performance.
