Matcha Green Tea Bags at Hana Tea House
Matcha translates into “powdered-tea”. By the very definition, Matcha is a powdered tea. Matcha powder consists of 100% of nutrition-packed leaves that have been harvested and processed laboriously into the familiar green powder we all know of. It takes 60 minutes to produce just 30g of matcha tea powder.
Matcha tea bags, on the other hand, are a blend mostly consisting of loose green tea leaves. They are referred to as Matcha tea bags because they are mixed with just 2% of pure matcha powder.
So what is the difference between matcha tea bags and matcha powder? The real difference between matcha teabags and matcha powder is the actual matcha content. Matcha powder is 100% of pure matcha versus just 2% matcha tea powder content in matcha tea bags. What many people don’t realise is that the tea bags are mostly a blend of green tea.
Because of this many customers looking to include matcha tea in to their daily routine end up paying a premium for what is essentially normal green tea – also a great nutritious drink, but not as potent as matcha powder.
Some people still choose to use Matcha green tea bags because it is a more convenient, quick, easy way to prepare a drink, and it is comparatively cheaper.

From Leaf to Bag: The Journey of Matcha Green Tea Bags
What makes Matcha unique isn’t its roots but its route from leaf to bag. Though the bright green Matcha powder may look out of this world, Matcha is actually a type of green tea. Like most tea, Matcha comes from the camellia sinensis plant but unlike its sun-seeking sisters, Matcha loves shade.
Grinding is how Matcha— “ground tea” in Japanese - gets its name. It’s also what turns its leaves into the vibrant green powder we know and love. Making Matcha the old-fashioned way takes patience: 30g of Matcha powder can take an hour to grind in a stone mill. But in a modern machine grinder, it’s ready before you can say “Matcha”!
