Matcha is a natural, organic green tea that is gently ground to a fine powder between two granite rocks. It has been drunk in tea ceremonies in Japan for nearly 900 years. Buddhists monks use it to aid meditation and keep them alert and awake during long meditative sessions. Matcha tea is also popular among Japanese students during exam times.
The thing that makes match tea so special is the fact that it is grown under cover for the last two weeks of cultivation to produce extra chlorophyll. This increase in chlorophyll means that matcha has over 100X the amount of antioxidants found in regular green tea.
Matcha tea is said to increase your energy while keeping you calm and focused. It is also reported to aid with weight loss and help encourage healthier skin. It is traditionally drunk by whisking a teaspoon of ground tea leaves into a cup of hot water (no need to strain). Using this method means you ingest the whole leaf, consuming all the nutrients.
This is high-quality, non-burnt stone-ground matcha tea imported from China.
