Although the Chinese began to experiment with ground tea leaves centuries ago, it is Japan that is home to matcha as we know it today. Matcha is finely ground tea leaves. True matcha has been used in the Japanese Tea Ceremony for centuries. The tea leaves destined to become high-grade ceremonial matcha are protected from the sun a couple of weeks before harvest. This is mostly to preserve a sweeter grassier flavour and to reduce the astringency in the tea. It also increases the chlorophyll in the leaves thus adding more antioxidants to the cup.
