Matcha is made from green tea leaves that are dried and ground into a fine powder. The tea is grown in the shade in the last few weeks before harvesting. The leaves are carefully dried, often inside, to prevent damage to the leaves. The leaves are then ground finally into a powder using a stone grinder.
Matcha balls can be kept in the refrigerator for several weeks.
