Matcha was used only during the Tea Ceremony. It was a powdered tea that was ground from fine leaves, rather than crushed ones. Matcha was dark green, strong, and very bitter. Sweets were served with it to deaden the bitter taste. [1] The tea was made by whisking the matcha powder in hot water, instead of the more common method of brewing. [2] The leaves came from a plant known as dan-cha. [3]
