What is an AAA+ graded Matcha?

From a nutritional perspective it is similar to OMGTea AAA Grade Matcha 30g but has more L-Theanine and caffeine.

What is Japanese Matcha?
Japanese Matcha comes from the same Camellia Sinensis plant as all teas but about four weeks before it is harvested the Matcha tea field is shaded in Bamboo, resulting in a 90% reduction of sunlight. Now growing almost in the dark, Camellia Sinensis compensates for a lack of light by producing chlorophyll and thus making its leaves rich in Amino Acids. At the time of the harvest only the youngest most tender, emerald green leaves are picked from the top third of the bush. After being steamed and then freeze-dried, the highest quality leaves are selected and the stems gently removed.
The last step in producing Matcha takes place in a factory where special granite stone mills grind Tencha tea into superfine Matcha powder. The grinding itself is done in a cleanroom in which temperature and humidity are kept constant.
Is it better to drink Matcha hot or cold?
Even if you want to make iced matcha or a matcha latte, OMGTea AAA+ Grade Matcha will dissolve best in hot water. However, avoid using boiling water - it shouldn't be over 80°C as boiling will degrade the nutrients and could result in making the taste bitter.
Studies have shown that consuming Matcha with a little Lemon or lime juice helps protect the matcha during Digestion allowing you to get more of the benefits from it. A splash of citrus may boost the antioxidant power by up to 4 times!

Is Matcha better than coffee?
