From the Test Kitchen

You might recognize the green tea flavor we used in the rice, known as Matcha in Japanese, from green tea ice cream or green tea lattes sold at coffee chains all over the world. This powder, made purely of very finely ground tea leaves, has the highest concentration of antioxidants of any other form of green tea.
