An introduction to Matcha Green Tea

Matcha is a premium, stone-ground powdered green tea used in the traditional Chinese and Japanese tea ceremony. Few weeks before harvest, matcha plants are grown under shade. This process forces the plant to produce higher levels of caffeine and amino acids (e.g., theanine). At harvest, the stems and veins are being removed from the leaves which are then processed into fine powder. According to the 12th century Zen priest Eisai, who introduced the tea to Japan, Matcha is “the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete”.

What makes Matcha Green Tea so special?

  1. It is packed with antioxidants
    The high levels of antioxidants found in Matcha are probably its primary health benefit and make it one of the best superfoods. They protect the body against tissue damage, have anti-inflammatory properties, strengthen the immune system and do much, much more.
  1. It facilitates weight loss
    For those trying to slim down, Matcha supports weight loss in a number of ways. It boosts metabolism and enhances fat oxidation, meaning you burn more calories and fat, as well as decreases appetite and fat absorption.
  1. It makes your skin glow
    Also known as the Japanese anti-aging secret, Matcha has been shown to improve skin elasticity and acts as a natural sunscreen to protect against damaging UV sunlight, making sure skin looks young, revitalised and healthy.
  1. It reduces stress and anxiety
    Matcha is full of L-theanine, a natural plant-based substance that reduces the stress hormone cortisol. This lowers anxiety levels while increasing concentration, focus and alpha brain waves known for inducing relaxation.
  1. It gives an energy boost without the jitters
    The combination of caffeine and L-theanine means that Matcha releases energy gradually so that you feel both calm and alert for up to five hours without the jitters and crash associated with coffee.
  1. It is extremely versatile.
    On top of enjoying a cup or bowl of tea, you can put a scoop of power in almost anything, from your breakfast porridge to your mid-morning smoothie, there are endless ways to enjoy Matcha.
