Matcha is an amazing tea. Developed by Zen Buddhist Monks and now the Japanese Ceremonial Tea, the process of growing and drinking matcha has, for centuries, been intended for fostering excellent health, clarity and focus. Research shows matcha to contain a concentrated amount of EGCG, the powerful anti cancer preventative antioxidant. Each teaspoon of matcha contains 10 times more the amount of EGCG than one cup of green tea. It is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fiber and chlorophyll. The health benefits of matcha exceed those of other green teas because matcha drinkers ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content.

You will find that our matcha when stirred, whisked or shaken suspends completely and will not leave clumps at the bottom of your cup. We recommend stirring your matcha once ½ way through your drinking experience.
Each half-teaspoon (1g) serving contains roughly 34mg of caffeine, about ⅓ a cup of coffee. However, Matcha also contains L-Theanine, which has a calming and leveling affect, so it doesn’t make you feel jittery or wired like coffee does.
