Matcha is made from whole, young green tea leaves grown on green tea bushes that are kept under shade. The shade increases the amount of chlorophyll content in the leaves, which is what makes them bright green & full of nutrients. After the leaves are hand picked, the stems & veins are removed. The entire leaf is delicately & finely ground into a silky smooth powder, as a way of maintaining the highest levels of nutrients.

Matcha is known for its health-promoting properties, boosting the metabolism, aiding in weight loss, promoting a state of relaxation & also for detoxifying and cleansing the body. Additionally, matcha is one of the highest sources of antioxidants, possessing as much as twenty times more antioxidants than pomegranates or blueberries.

One of the reasons matcha tea is considered a superfood is because it contains specific antioxidants called catechins. Matcha is high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which research has indicated that it provides potent cancer-fighting properties & counteracts the damage done on the cell’s DNA from chemical, UV ray, and radiation exposure. Matcha is also rich in L-theanine, an amino acid that acts on the brain’s functioning to promote memory, relaxation and well-being. While L-theanine is common in all tea, matcha can contain up to five times more than common black and green teas.

Matcha can be used in a variety of beverage applications from simply making the tea by whisking the powder into hot water. Traditionally this is done with a called a bamboo whisk called a chasen which is helpful to avoid clumping. If you do not have a chasen, it’s recommended to use a tea strainer to sift the matcha into a bowl to avoid clumps before adding the hot water. You can also add your favorite milk (almond, oat, etc) to make a delicious matcha latte. You can also add matcha powder to smoothies or to sparkling water for a refreshing & energizing drink or even in martini’s! It can also be added to other foods, like smoothie bowls, salad dressings, breads, baking, cupcakes, icing and pastries, for both its color and flavor.
