Matcha consists of only the fine tissue of the best leaves. Stems and veins are carefully removed. After selecting, steaming and drying, only the best material reaches the mills made of granite and the leaf tissue is gently ground to finest powder – in an ancient process yielding only 30 to 40 grams per hour. This premium product is called matcha (“ground tea”). As organic matcha extract it is the precious, exclusive essence of the innovative Swiss cosmetics line Kosho Matcha Effective.
