Our organic Matcha is Japanese green tea, ground into powder. The peculiarities of cultivation and preparation allow this drink to retain a huge amount of nutrients.
Harvested only once a year. And an important feature is that two weeks before harvest, the leaves are covered to protect them from sunlight. Thus, the tea retains its freshness, and the leaves have a rich dark green colour. At the same time, the leaves are saturated with amino acids, and the tea acquires a sweet taste. The leaves are harvested by hand, dried in a special room without twisting, in a straight state, and then ground into a light, powdery powder of a bright green color.
The taste of matcha tea depends on the presence of amino acids in it. The higher grades that are harvested first have a deeper rich aroma and sweet taste than the lower grades harvested later.
Matcha surpasses any quality tea in its beneficial properties. For comparison, the concentration of beneficial and nutritious nutrients in 1 cup of powdered tea is equivalent to 8-10 cups of green tea. Matcha contains strong antioxidants (and in record amounts), flavonoids, amino acids and phytonutrients. Matcha neutralizes the effects of carcinogens, helps slow down the aging process and rejuvenates cells. Green tea powder boosts metabolism and boosts fat burning by acting as a detox agent.
Japanese tea promotes the production of dopamine and serotonin, which are responsible for tone, good mood and concentration.
