Japan's select batch, certified organic ceremonial matcha (ceremonial grade). Sourced from select farms in the mountains of Japan, this is earth's rocket fuel in powder form. Our Organic Japanese (Ceremonial Grade) Matcha is smooth and creamy, fit for the Samurai Warrior within. Like green tea, matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. However, it’s grown differently and has a unique nutrient profile.
Farmers grow matcha by covering their tea plants 20–30 days before harvest to avoid direct sunlight. This increases chlorophyll production and boosts the amino acid content. Matcha contains the nutrients from the entire tea leaf (packs more concentrated nutrients), which results in a greater amount of caffeine and antioxidants than typical green tea.
Matcha is rich in catechins, a class of plant compounds in tea that act as natural antioxidants.
EGCG available from drinking matcha is 137 times greater than the amount of EGCG available from 'China Green Tips' green tea, and at least three times higher than the largest literature value for other green teas (Weiss and Anderton).
Furthermore, an analysis of 15 studies found that drinking green tea was associated with a decreased risk of liver disease (Yin et al).
One study suggests that matcha tea consumed in a realistic dose can induce slight effects on speed of attention and episodic secondary memory to a low degree (Dietz, Dekker and Piqueras-Fiszman).
