Powdered Matcha Kagoshima Tea.

Froth of Liquid Jade, this is the powdered tea used for the traditional Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Matcha is a versatile and exciting tea that is gaining popularity throughout the world.

Meaning Powdered Tea, Matcha originates in Japan where it was traditionally the most refined type of tea used for the traditional Tea Ceremony.

The tea leaves that are used for producing Matcha are the younger leaves of the tea plant. They are also grown in shade; these two factors ensure an exceptionally high concentration of chlorophyll and amino acids. It is why this powdered tea is so green.

Back in the 15th-16th Century it had been found that shading tea plants before harvest produces a mellow, sweet taste. The best Matcha is hand-picked only once a year.

Matcha is special because it is powdered and, unlike regular loose-leaf tea where you discard the leaves, because it is powdered you consume the entire leaf. This means the powdered tea has a host of health benefits for those who drink it.

It is full of nutrients to provide surplus vitamins and minerals, including antioxidants for the immune system. Studies show that Matcha contains 137 times more catechins than regular green tea and regular green tea already has lots.

It contains a high amount of caffeine making it a great replacement for coffee. What is even better, is that the amino acids in Matcha also have a calming effect on the body and so counter the coffee shakes!

It is a great booster without the crash that comes from energy drinks and coffee.

You need very little powder, so a little goes a long way to perform that Matcha magic.
