Matcha is simply shaded green tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder. Instead of only receiving a small part of the nutritional benefits of brewed green tea, with matcha you are consuming the whole leaf, which means all the healthful goodness!
Matcha Organics is made from high quality green tea leaves that have been shade grown for 3 weeks, carefully picked, destemmed and deveined, dried and stone ground into a fine powder.
The process of covering the green tea leaves causes the leaves to photosynthesize therefore increasing chlorophyll and nutrient content. This also causes the leaves to have a dark green color and matcha to have a vibrant color.
Matcha can be whisked with water for a traditional nutrient dense tea, added to milk for a tasty latte, or incorporated into any smoothie, dessert or baking recipe for a natural boost energy boost, and dose of antioxidants and nutrients. There is a great rason Zen monks have used matcha for centuries... its calming focus is beyond compare.
