Matcha is a finely ground powder made from green tea leaves. While matcha has spread to be a globally loved and consumed flavor; arguably the best matcha in the world can be found in Uji, Kyoto. Uji is a district of Kyoto known as the birthplace of traditional Japanese tea ceremonies, and people from all over Japan flock to this district to try authentic and fresh matcha treats. If you are taking time to explore all of the hidden treasures and traditional architecture and culture of Kyoto, you need to include an afternoon enjoying matcha as part of your checklist.
