Matcha is the healthiest green tea available!
Matcha tea has been consumed in Japan for almost 1000 years, traditionally reserved for royalty, religious dignitaries and spiritual luminaries. Matcha growth and production is a very complex and refined process, specific to the country of Japan. Matcha leaves are handpicked, and only the youngest, tenderest leaves at the tip of the tea plant are harvested. The plants are carefully shade-grown for several months prior to picking, in order to boost chlorophyll content. These precious, extremely green leaves are then inspected, lightly steamed to halt any enzymatic breakdown, and ground to an ultra-fine powder on traditional stone grinders. Matcha is simple to mix and store, and there are virtually no contraindications. Matcha is non-addictive and there are no known ‘withdrawal’ effects. Drink Matcha.your body and mind will thank you!
Matcha is one of the healthiest forms of green tea, boasting the highest level of antioxidants. During the manufacturing process, the tea leaves (or tencha) are ground into a fine powder to produce matcha; this means that, unlike other teas in which the tea leaf is simply strained, matcha green tea allows the drinker to take in all of the nutrients available—one cup of Matcha tea has the same amount of beneficial antioxidants as ten cups of regular green tea!
