How Bulk Matcha is Made

The Process of Producing Bulk Organic Matcha

Matcha manufacturing is a precise and complicated undertaking. As this article explains, several elements impact the final quality of the product, the majority of them having to do with the authentic means that it is actually produced in Japan. Manufacturers need to follow specific procedures to obtain a high-quality product with a flavor profile that delights consumers, just as the actual producers in Japan must follow first to create it.

3 Essential steps to how bulk matcha is produced in Japan

  1. First, the soil and atmosphere where green tea plants are grown must be carefully selected to maximize the tea plant's growth and minimize contamination.

  2. Once harvested, each leaf is dried precisely and then processed in an on-site stone-grinding or high-tech milling facility, depending on the grade. There the leaves are ground into fine powder through temperature-controlled oscillations.

  3. The finished tea is stored in a humidity-controlled, refrigerated environment, typically requiring several months to reach its optimal flavor profile.

These specifications are only scratching the surface of centuries of techniques developed in Japan - primarily unchanged till this very day for more than 300 years. As a result, manufacturing matcha from scratch requires extensive knowledge of sustainable green tea processing both from the grower's perspective and the miller's perspective.

  • Matcha can be used in a variety of food and beverage applications, making it an excellent beverage and ingredient to add to any cafe's menu or barista’s repertoire.
  • Manufacturers who use matcha products benefit from matcha because it has higher nutrient density, more excellent economic value and higher quality.
  • Matcha product manufacturers can benefit from authentic producers in Japan who can follow precise procedures to obtain a high-quality product with desired flavor profile and nutrition.
  • Matcha production requires extensive knowledge from the grower's and miller's perspectives that cannot be replicated outside Japan's multi-generational family producers.
