Beautiful and glowing skin is on top of the list of pursuits when it comes to beauty and skincare. Clear and healthy skin is not only a sign of good looks but also our overall health, as skin is the largest organ responsible for the detoxification of our body. One of the most popular beauty ingredients that are widely used in the East Asian culture is not commonly seen or referred to as a beauty ingredient at all, but rather a delicious and healthy drink: Matcha.
Matcha is a delicious and healthy drink from Japan that’s taken the world by storm. Instead of tea leaves, matcha is always in powdered form, and its bright green colour might be a bit shocking to first-timers.

In this article, we explore how matcha is made, from how its grown to how it becomes the powder we all can’t get enough of.
