Q. What is the difference between "Ceremonial grade" and "Culinary grade"?
The difference between "Ceremonial grade" and "Culinary grade" is quality.
"Ceremonial grade" is dissolved directly in hot water to drink, so if the quality is not good, you will feel bitterness.
For this reason, only matcha made with high-quality ingredients and stone mills is categorized as “for tea ceremonies.”
In addition, it cannot be produced in large quantities because it takes time to make with a stone mill.
Only 40-60g of matcha is ground in one stone mill per hour.
For culinary grade, it is possible to produce in large quantities by mixing millstone production and mechanical crushing.
Mechanical crushing has the advantage of being able to produce large quantities, but it has a slightly bitter taste compared to stone milling.
For this reason, using "ceremonial grade" matcha for lattes, cafes, and food will have a higher quality taste than "Culinary grade" matcha.
Among the "Curinaly grade", "MOKUREN" is all made with a stone mill.
