Matcha has 137 times more antioxidants than green tea. It also aids weight loss and is believed to improve concentration.
Matcha is prepared from a quality, shade grown, leaf known as tencha. The harvesting is done by hand to ensure only the youngest high grade leaves are used and then these green tea leaves are stone ground into a very fine powder.
Matcha is renowned for its abundant health benefits as it is rich in nutrients, fibre, chlorophyll and antioxidants. When you drink matcha you ingest the entire leaf, which provides 137 times more antioxidants for the body than brewed green tea. Antioxidants are a powerful support to our immune system and can reduce oxidative damage due to the ageing process. Said to aid weight loss, matcha is also a brilliant post work-out ingredient as it supports cell repair and re-growth.
For over a millennium, matcha has been used by the Chinese and Japanese as a means to relax and meditate whilst remaining alert. The amino acid L-theanine contained in the leaves promotes the production of alpha waves in the brain which induces an alert but relaxed mental state. This can help you feel naturally energised but without the jitters sometimes associated with an intake of caffeine.
