Matcha is fast becoming one of the most popular drinks, used everywhere from the matcha lattes in your neighbourhood cafe to the decorative garnish in molecular gastronomy. Many people think matcha was invented in Japan, but it actually originated in China during the Tang Dynasty. It was popularised during the Song Dynasty, but it wasn’t until the early 1900s when a Japanese monk planted green tea seeds in temple grounds in Kyoto that matcha became a truly Japanese tea.
