It sounds crazy, but believe us they work. How Is Green Tea Extract, Matcha Green Tea Powder Made? Green Tea Extract, Matcha Green Tea Powder is made from what looks like a finely ground emerald green powder. Matcha itself is prepared from a very high quality shade-grown leaf that’s known as tencha. The tea bushes are sheltered to provide a darker shake of green leaf which stimulation the production of chlorophyll and amino acids. These buds are then dried slowly at very low temperatures which not only provides a milder flavour, but it also provides a higher concentration of catechins. This is why most green tea aficionados praise Green Tea Extract, Matcha Green Tea Powder for being the purist.
