Ceremonial Grade Matcha Green Tea Powder.
 
Our USDA Certified Organic Matcha Tea Powder is ceremonial grade which uses the finest, smallest shade grown leaves from the very tip of the tea bush. This creates a vibrant green colour and slightly sweet, smooth flavour the young tips of the tea plant which are used to make the lower grades of matcha tea.

What is Matcha?
Matcha is simply powdered green tea, however it is grown and harvested differently to standard green tea. The tea plant is grown in the shade for the final few months prior to harvest to boost the chlorophyll content of the leaves so it develops a vibrant green colour. Matcha is available in four different grades which vary in colour, nutrition and price.

Nutritionally Dense:
Green tea is made by brewing tea leaves in hot water after which the leaves are discarded. However, with matcha tea powder you actually consumes the green tea, which maximises the nutritional uptake. you get many times more nutritional bang for your buck from a teaspoon of matcha powder than a cup of brewed green tea. Matcha is very high in antioxidants, polyphenols and catechins.

How to enjoy: One serve is about half a teaspoon. Add the powder to your favourite smoothie.
 
Ingredients: Certified organic 100% pure Ceremonial Grade green tea leaves (no stems or twigs which produces are browner colour matcha).

Note: Green tea contains natural caffeine, though less than regular coffee. 1 gram of matcha contains about 25-30mg of caffeine while regular coffee contains about 80-100mg. Further, matcha powder also contains L-theanine which has a calming effect on the body and tempers the jittery effect that caffeine can otherwise cause. For that reason, we think matcha is much better caffeine source than regular coffee.
