Magnificent matcha’s claim to fame is as the superhero of all green teas. Because it is harvested and produced differently to other green teas, Matcha is the richest source of nutrients and boasts the highest levels of beneficial antioxidants.
Like all green tea, Matcha originates from the camellia sinensis plant, but is harvested a little differently which creates its vibrantly green colour. Matcha powder is ground from ‘tencha’ which is what we call the green tea leaves in their entirety. The resultant fine powder retains all the nutrients of the green tea leaves and provides a mega boost of good green stuff!
Matcha is bursting with beneficial nutrients bound to boost your immune strength!
This superhero of all green teas contains high levels of several antioxidants including polyphenols and catechins. Drinking matcha every day or adding a scoop to your smoothies or porridge may help to protect your liver, improve your heart health, aid with weight loss, protect your cells from damaging free radicals, boost brain function and reduce the risk of chronic disease.
