In Japanese culture, Matcha Tea is widely known and accepted drink. Back in the Tang Dynasty in China, tea leaves were steamed and formed into tea bricks for storage and trade. It became popular in the Song Dynasty where the method of making powdered tea started. Then it became a necessary part of the ritual by Chan or Zen Buddhists.
