Have you ever seen a bright green-colored tea? That’s Matcha Tea, and it originated in Japan. Its gorgeous and unique color is thanks to the fact that the entire leaf is ingested in powder form. It’s the most potent green tea in the world!

The History of Matcha Tea

In Japanese “cha” means tea and “ma” means powder. Thus, Matcha literally translates as powdered green tea. The Zen Monk Eisai first brought tea to Japan from China in 1191 A.D. He planted the first plants at a temple in Kyoto and was the first person to consume the leaves in a powdered form. Since then, Zen and Matcha have always gone together, and the rest is history. For almost 750 years, Matcha was almost a secret tea for Japan’s elite, but now it’s well known throughout the world.

Benefits of Matcha Tea

Matcha Tea is full of goodness. Think about all the incredible benefits found in Green Tea and increase the results. Matcha has 137 times more antioxidants than regularly brewed green tea because you consume the entire leaf. In fact, one cup of Match is equal to ten cups of green tea in terms of its ingredients and benefits.

One cup of Matcha is packed full of vitamins and minerals like vitamin C, selenium, chromium, zinc, and magnesium. Plus, it helps to boost your metabolism and burn calories while detoxifying your body naturally and effectively. Matcha Tea has also been known to help calm the mind so you can relax, which is why it’s used in Japanese Zen ceremonies. It also helps to boost your memory and concentration while fortifying your immune system.

Matcha Tea may not look or taste like any other tea, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t give it a try. A well-made cup of Matcha Tea is textured like a perfectly pulled espresso shot and tastes like delicious cup of baby green vegetables with a sweet aftertaste. Give it a shot!

OUT OF STOCK

No doubt you know about green tea. Matcha is not just any old green tea. We source the most superior certified organic green tea leaves from Japan; which are steamed, dried, the leaves stripped from the stems, then ground into a fine powder. This powder, that’s matcha. Given that it contains the entire leaf, it’s not your standard green tea.
Benefits of drinking matcha include cleansing, increased energy, possible weight loss, immunity, relaxing and calming the mind, and regulating metabolism.
