The Making of Matcha

w-u13-o

From Cultivation to Producing Aracha ("Crude Tea")
1In mid-April, reed screens are set up to block some of the sunlight reaching the tea sprouts.
2About ten days later, a layer of straw is evenly spread out to gradually block more sunlight. With the help of very little sunlight, the young sprouts gradually grow, showing a soft, bright green color as their chlorophyll content increases. They become increasingly tasty without acquiring much astringency.
3Tea-picking begins in early- to mid-May. The leaves are soft, so they are always handpicked. Growing on small evergreen trees, the tea leaves are only picked once during this time of year when their quality is best.
4The picked leaves are transported immediately to the aracha factory.
5They are steamed with a powerful flow of steam, keeping them from fermenting. This results in a bright tone of green across the entire leaf.
6To cool the steamed leaves and remove any dew, they are blown upwards many times and are evenly scattered.
7The leaves are then placed in a "hoiro" drying oven made of brick, which rids the leaves of any moisture by moving its three layers of conveyor belts.
8This dried tea is the crude form tencha (unpowdered tea), also known as "aratencha". Aratencha made during this first tea-picking season of the year is stored once in a refrigerator. It is then shipped to the sorting factory as needed.
From Sorting and Processing to Matcha
9Aratencha is taken out of the refrigerator and cut into standardized shapes
10It is introduced to a winnower, where leaf veins and stems are removed with wind.
11It is further passed through a sieve, standardizing the sizes and enhancing the flavors through a final drying stage called "Neri". This gives tencha its unique fragrance called "Oika".
12Static electricity is used to remove any old leaves or straw contained in the dried leaves. A color sorting machine is also used for premium products.
13After going through the above sorting process, the quality and characteristics of the finished tencha are assessed based on appearance, taste, smell, and tea color as well as color of tea residuals.
14According to a determined ratio, multiple types of finished tencha are blended together homogeneously. This blending process (called "gogumi") is the last stage before grinding the tea in a millstone, and it produces the individual brands of finished tencha.
15The branded tencha is slowly and carefully ground in a millstone to produce fine matcha. Nothing surpasses the fine grains and distinct flavor that a millstone delivers.
