Our Curated Matcha Selection
Matcha green tea is rich in antioxidants called catechins, which have been linked to various health benefits such as improved heart health and better blood sugar regulation. The high concentration of the catechin, EGCG, is known to have cancer-fighting effects. Additionally, the L-theanine in Matcha promotes relaxation and mental focus, creating a unique "calm alertness" without the jitters often associated with caffeine.
Matcha is a finely ground powder made from specially grown and processed green tea leaves, traditionally used in Japanese tea ceremonies. The tea plants are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvesting, and the stems and veins are removed during processing, resulting in a vibrant green powder. It's primarily produced in Japan, in regions like Uji, Nishio, and Shizuoka, where the climate and soil conditions are ideal for growing these unique tea leaves.
Our careful selection and sourcing practices for Matcha prioritize quality and taste above all else. We collaborate with experienced tea farmers in renowned regions like Uji and Nishio among others, ensuring that only the finest shade-grown tea leaves are handpicked and delicately processed. This meticulous approach guarantees a Matcha powder that delivers an unparalleled, rich flavor and vibrant color, embodying the traditional artistry of Japanese tea cultivation.
