Japanese Antioxidant Superfood
MATCHA is an antioxidant organic superfood sourced from Japan. MATCHA is linked to a whole host of health benefits including promoting calm, boosting memory, increasing energy and detoxifying the body.
Produced With Care
The leaves used to create MATCHA are grown in the shade, handpicked, steamed, dried and then ground into a fine green powder ready for use.
MATCHA is 100% organically grown and free from the negative impacts of chemical fertilisers.
Rich In Antioxidants
MATCHA contains 6.2 times more antioxidants than Goji Berries, 7 times more than dark chocolate, and 60.5 time more than spinach.
MATCHA was used 1000’s of years ago by Zen Buddhist monks in Japanese tea ceremonies, making it an integral part of Japanese culture.
MATCHA is grown in the shade, increasing its chlorophyll content. Chlorophyll is purported to detoxify the body, clearing the body of toxins, heavy metal poisons, dioxins and hormone disrupters.
MATCHA is sourced from a leading global producer of matcha green tea leaves directly from Japan.
Matcha powder is rich in antioxidants and in fact, has much higher levels than many other foods commonly recognised for their antioxidant properties. For example, matcha contains 7 times more antioxidants than dark chocolate and 60 times more than spinach! Matcha can be helpful as an energy booster, detoxifier and it can also assist with boosting your memory. Numerous studies have suggested matcha can boost your metabolism and subsequently help with weightloss.
The simplest way to drink matcha is to mix a scoop into hot water and stir well. If you leave it for a long time the powder may settle on the bottom of the cup. You can also try making a matcha latte or stirring it into ice cream. Matcha flavoured ice cream is a popular flavour in Japan!
Matcha green tea powder is bright green in colour and quite bitter to drink. If you find the flavour too intense, you can add a little sweetener, such as honey. You could also try making it into a matcha latte, which will lessen the intensity of the flavour. You may find after drinking matcha for a while, you can get accustomed to the taste.
Because it is made from crushed whole tea leaves, matcha contains about half the amount of caffeine you would find in a cup of black coffee and considerably more than a regular cup of tea.
When you consume matcha, you are drinking the whole leaf as opposed to regular green tea, where the leaves are steeped in hot water but the leaf is not consumed. Because of this, matcha is said to contain up to ten times the nutritional value of standard loose leaf green tea.
Matcha green tea originates from Japan, where it is traditionally been used in tea ceremony for over 1,000 years. During the tea ceremony ritual, the bitter taste of matcha is offset by eating a traditional Japanese sweet called “kasha”. The matcha tea itself is made in a bowl by adding hot water to the powder, then mixing with a bamboo whisk, called a “chasen”.
