Organic Green Matcha Tea Powder
Matcha green tea powder is the stone ground powder made from 100% organic green tea leaves. Originating from Japan, the word ‘matcha’ literally translates as powdered (ma) green tea (cha). In the 3 weeks leading into harvest, the leaves are covered with shade to stimulate the production of chlorophyll and to greatly enhance a host of other micro nutrients.
Matcha is known for its smooth texture and slightly sweet flavour making it easy to enjoy as well as having a positive effect on our moods and emotions. It has long been talked about for its ability to stimulate presence of mind, mental alertness, and a calm, meditative state simultaneously.
With its vibrant green colour, the tea itself is loaded with nutrients including L-Theanine and the powerful anti-oxidant ECGC. Both of these protect brain and liver cells from damage, as well as reducing anxiety and promoting a good nights sleep. These two potent molecules are also associated with reducing the risk of stroke, with new studies showing promising results as cancer inhibitors. ECGC is also known to boost metabolism whilst L-Theanine plays a role in boosting immunity, supporting the body year round. Compared to other teas, Matcha has very high levels of anti-oxidants with more than 10 times the amount of regular green tea.
