From the selection and the fertility of the soil, the care of the plant, it must be cover the harvest of the sun and complex processes such as removing the stem and the veins from the leaves, in order to obtain the Tencha leaf which is finally grinded in stone mills to get a texture of very fine powder that we know as Matcha.
