FAQs – Super Matcha Green Tea
To be certified organic the food must…
– Contain NO GMO’s! What’s a GMO you ask? It stands for Genetically Modified Organism. We could really go on all day about why we do not want them in our products, and especially do not want to feed them to our wonderful customers. To learn more about GMO’s, see our FAQ “What is a GMO?”
– Be grown and harvested in a safe and sustainable manner, with NO artificial fertilizers, NO artificial pesticides and NO irradiation!
– Contain NO artificial flavors, colors or preservatives!
Why else should you choose organic?
– Organic agriculture preserves natural resources and biodiversity.
– It supports animal health and welfare (for meat products, certified organic means they have not be subjected to growth hormones or harmful antibiotics).
– Organic foods have been shown to have better nutritional value than conventionally grown food.
You may have heard that pomegranate & blueberries are packed with antioxidant content, yet Matcha Green Tea has been reported to have much higher antioxidant levels than these amazing fruits. Dark chocolate, regarded as having an even higher free radical suppressing ability (ORAC*, or Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) than pomegranate & blueberries, still pales in comparison; Matcha is still about 7 times higher in antioxidants!
* Tuft’s University gave Matcha Green Tea an ORAC rating of 1,300 units per grams vs. 105 units per gram for pomegranate and 91 units per grams for blueberries.

Matcha Tea does have caffeine in it; 1 gram (about a half teaspoon) has about 35 mg of caffeine vs. 80-120 mg typically found in 1 teaspoon of coffee. Unlike coffee, the phytonutrients and amino acids in Matcha Tea allows the human body to use caffeine in a much more beneficial way opposed to caffeine from coffee. The caffeine in Matcha bonds with “the champions of antioxidants” known as catechins, and enters into the blood stream slowly. The richness of fiber in Matcha Tea also helps to stabilize already healthy blood sugar levels.
