From JK Tea Shop

Matcha, the most famous, and commonly-drank tea in Japan, is a finely-powdered green tea. Matcha originates from China Tang Dynasty(618-907), and were the only tribute way of drinking tea in Tang & Song Dynasties(960-1279) in China. At that period, the preparation of Matcha is more complicated, and has more steps than the current Japanese Matcha ceremony.

Then in Ming Dynasty(1368-1644), the Emperor, Zhu Yuanzhang banned the production of cake teas, and encourage the loose leaves tea for his personal reason.(this mostly connected to his humble origin). Hence, from then on, loose leaves tea has been popular in China till now.

1000mesh is a powder diameter standard. In other words, 1000 mesh means 1000 tiny holes in the screen per square inch, which is about 0.013 milimeter per powder in diameter.

EDIT: having tried it a few more times, using thermometer to ensure close to 70 celcius I can say that is starting to grow on me. It has a thick, nourishing quality like green food powder supplements.
will try a fresh higher grade matcha next time.

This is my first experience with Matcha.
I was hoping for bright super fresh ‘ultimate green tea’ experience.
however it turned out to taste and feel rather flat. certainly much less fresh and cleansing than just about any quality green tea leaf that I have come across.
perhaps this is due to the fact that I am drinking it approx one year after production, and being powdered, it ages fast.
the color was olive green.

I will probably pass this one as a gift to someone who can get better use from it.
