What is Matcha and how is it grown ?
Matcha is a fine powdered Green Tea used in Japan for their tea ceremonies. Matcha Tea was used by Zen Buddhist monks, to keep them focused and relaxed during long periods of meditation. Matcha is the fastest growing health beverage today due to its high antioxidant count and numerous health benefits. Our Matcha comes from Japan and is unique because of its manufacturing process compared with regular green tea.
The preparation of Matcha starts several weeks before harvest as the tea bushes are covered 90% to prevent direct sunlight for 20 – 30 days, which increases their chlorophyll content.
This slows down growth, turns the leaves a darker shade of green and causes the production of amino acids that make the resulting tea sweeter. Then the leaves are plucked, steamed, dried, and then removed of all stems. The dried leaves are then stone ground into a powder creating the final product. Amino acids, such as theanine, found in the Camellia Sinensis plant, relaxe the body, Stimulates brain waves and keep us alert.
When drinking Matcha, you are actually consuming the whole green tea leaf in which, you receive approximately ten times more health benefits than an infusion of regular Green Tea leaves. Green tea is known for being high in antioxidants, catechins, polyphenols and we now have the scientific proof of the incredible power of Matcha Green tea.
