There is perhaps no tea on the market today as celebrated or as famous as Matcha. The ancient Japanese who first created the tea believed it was gift of the heavens, and as such held great restorative and spiritual power here on earth. These days, the rules around drinking Matcha have loosened. What was once saved only for ceremony, has found its way into everyday life. Matcha can now be found served cold, as an ingredient in health shakes, ice creams, and even baked goods. And why not, when you consider these numbers: 2 cups of brewed matcha contains 7x the antioxidants of orange juice, 20x that of apple juice, and nearly 20g of calcium. On a gram/gram basis, our Matcha also contains approximately 10 times the polyphenols of some regular bulk teas!
What makes matcha so special? Unlike traditional teas in which the leaves are brewed and discarded, Matcha is powdered and brewed whole. As such, the leaves themselves are actually consumed. In addition to producing incredible mouth feel and a thick, rich cup, this maximizes the antioxidant benefits of the tea, helping it rank amongst the World’s most healthful beverages.
