What is Matcha?

Put simply, matcha is finely ground green tea leaves.

When you drink matcha you’re consuming the entire green tea leaf, which is why one cup has the nutritional benefits of 10 cups of regular green tea. It’s also one the richest all-natural source of antioxidants!

The youngest tea leaves are steamed, dried, de-stemmed and de-veined, before being ground into a fine powder. To give matcha its vibrant green colour, special flavor and incredible health benefits, it undergoes a shade-growing process unique to this type of tea.

Drinking matcha helps achieve a calmer yet more alert state of mind, thanks to the combination of caffeine and L-Theanine which increases alpha brain wave activity. That’s why, for over 800 years, Japanese Zen Bhuddist monks have been using matcha to give them energy and mental clarity during long meditations.

Matcha’s usefulness goes way beyond meditation - it’s the perfect, gentle energy boost for those of us who lead busy lives, giving us the focus and calm we need to make the most of each day.
