What Is Matcha?

Matcha is a finely ground green tea powder that is grown in the shade. This results in its vivd green colour and high chlorophyll content. Once the leaves are ready to be harvested they are picked, and ground with a special stone mortar into a beautifully fine powder. 30 grams takes 1 hour to grind!

Originally drunk as a tea in Japanese tea ceremonies & by monks to keep them focused during meditation, it is now widely being recognised for its multiple health benefits and natural metabolism boosting & energising properties. As the popularity for its delicious umami flavour and health benefits rise the versatility of the product get discovered further. 

Why Is Matcha Good For You?

In short the antioxidant level in 1 cup of matcha = 10 cups of green tea! With a similar caffeine content to coffee, matcha as a tea or latte is the perfect healthier alternative. Gentler on the stomach & also freshens your breath! 

1. Super high in antioxidants 1 cup of matcha = 10 cups of normal green tea

2. Contains L-Theanine. This amino acid is truly amazing. It is a natural calming agent that reacts with caffeine to prevent those coffee like jitters and caffeine crashes. Instead it creates a more sustained calm alertness. This is why monks have always drunk matcha before meditating. 

3. Natural fat burner and metabolism booster

4. Packed full of catechins
