But hey, what is matcha? Matcha is a unique tasting powdered Japanese green tea.
Matcha is said to have been brought about by Buddhist monks who roasted the leaves, ground them to a powder and whisked it with hot water to make a tea. The L-Theanine (a mind-energizing amino acid) and caffeine combination found in Matcha produced a relaxed yet focused effect which assisted them in their long periods of meditation. Matcha is well known for it’s health benefits and is regarded as the superior tea of Japan. As the entire leaf has been ground down into a fine powder, the benefits of consuming the whole leaf in beverages or food is also at an optimum.
Matcha is full of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and fibers. One gram of Ceremonial Matcha green tea = 15x the antioxidants of wild blueberries.
