Matcha Green Tea is a special type of powdered GREEN TEA designed to be whisked with hot or cold water.
Matcha Green Tea has antioxidants, immune boosting flavonoids and catechins. Chlorophyll-infused, with amino acids, Matcha has a natural alkalizing effect, which keeps your body’s pH (potential hydrogen) balanced.
These are simply the powerful antioxidants described above that make up about 30% of the Matcha Green Tea’s dry leaf weight. Because Matcha is unfermented, the polyphenols exist primarily as catechins. The most powerful catechins (antioxidants) are known as ECGg. What this means in layman’s terms is this: 1 cup of Match Green Tea has a much greater antioxidant affect that a serving of broccoli, spinach, Kale, carrots, or strawberries, as well as other green and black tea’s per above.
Both green and black teas are widely recognized and proven to have extraordinary antioxidant levels – Matcha 100% whole-leaf powdered green tea takes this to another level altogether. Incorporation of the entire leaf delivers chlorophyll, co-factors and other organic buffers that help improve the bioavailability of Matcha’s potent antioxidants. Plus, Matcha’s uniquely elevated level of “catechins” (EGCg), give it a distinct advantage over regular green and black teas. These factors mean Matcha is truly special in its ability to deliver an abundance of antioxidants, which we have all seen cited in many studies as nature’s way of helping support the immune system.
Matcha is a healthy, natural, and nutrient-dense drink that is almost calorie free. Even better news is the fact that Matcha has been reported to help boost metabolism and thus help to burn fat. Research shows that this is accomplished in part through Matcha green tea’s ability to improve physical endurance by nearly 25%, creating additional calorie burning- a sure fire way to accelerate and compliment your weight-loss goals!
Super Food and beyond! Matcha has one of the highest ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) values of any plant know to man! Further, the high content of fiber, amino acids, vitamins, minerals and related cofactors that support nutrient bioavailability are uniquely delivered via use of the whole leaf, making Matcha an amazingly potent food source that naturally promotes vitality. Matcha requires only picking, natural drying, and stone grinding, so its lack of industrial processing or modification truly makes it a natural Super Food.
Matcha Tea has an impressive history that goes back over a thousand years. Japanese monks who considered meditation important but also realize the benefit of staying alert. They learned that Matcha Tea allowed them to be focused without being “wired.” In today’s coffee-crazed culture, this may seem like a dichotomy but, science has proven what these ancient monks experienced. A unique Amino Acid called L-Theanine has been proven to promote relaxation while keeping brain function stimulated. This amino acid is also believed to help memory and learning. The great news is that Matcha Tea has up to 5 times more L-Theanine Amino Acid than common black and green teas. This helps buffer the caffeine content and deliver amazing concentration and focus without the jitters of other caffeinated beverages.
Matcha Tea is unique in that it is a fine green powder. Traditional Matcha is prepared by placing a portion of the tea in a bowl or cup, and then adding hot water. The tea is then dissolved and aerated by using a traditional bamboo whisk (or Chasen in Japanese) until creamy and frothy.
Match Tea is the taste of health and freshness. It is rich and creamy compared to more astringent green and especially black fermented teas. The whole leaf organic content helps buffer any bitter or harsh flavor, and the powdered consistency makes it light yet full on the palette.
Matcha is a 100% whole-leaf green tea from Japan, meticulously grown, gently dried and stone-ground into a bright green, unfermented powder. Because the entire unfermented leaf is ground and combined with hot water, consuming Matcha provides ALL the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids inherent in the plant itself, while delivering a richly organic, full-bodied and deeply satisfying flavor profile not found in steeped teas.
