Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder
What is matcha green tea?
Matcha is a traditional Japanese green tea prepared by mixing powder into water or milk. This differs from typical tea drinks prepared by boiling and discarding leaves. Since you’re consuming the whole powdered tea leaf matcha can be mixed with cold water, milk, or any milk substitute as well as brewed with hot water.
Quality matcha should be a pea-green, extra-fine powder with a distinctive, grassy aroma.
Matcha powder is made from shade-grown young camellia sinensis leaves. These plants are specially grown using a pre-harvest shading technique which encourages high concentrations of health boosting compounds. Leaves are carefully harvested steamed, dried, and stone ground.
Our organic matcha green tea powder is sourced from the tea connoisseurs at Dobra Tea Pittsburgh who import it from Japan. This is among the finest matcha available in the US.
Matcha green tea benefits:
By consuming the entire tea leaf you get more of the benefits of green tea than a typical brewed tea. Matcha powder contains vitamins, minerals, amino-acids, and antioxidants. This powdered tea is one of the best natural sources of the potent antioxidant epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG.) It is also an excellent natural source of l-theanine.
Do not drink matcha on an empty stomach.
