When Japanese Buddhist monks needed a little help with the long meditative sessions they turned to ground form of tea we now know as Matcha. Grown on the Izu peninsula of Japan, our Izu Matcha produces a distinctive and vegetable cup of tea with a sweet notes but undertones of astringency for interest. Produced from pure tea leaves called tencha which are shaded for 3 weeks prior to plucking, Izu Matcha has higher levels of Chlorophyll content that gives the leaves and tea an emerald green color and grassy notes.
- Matcha is considered the healthiest form of tea since the entire leaf is consumed due to its powdered consistency
- Green tea has been cited as being beneficial in lowering high blood pressure
- Green teas antioxidant content may also be helpful in preventing a number of diseases
Japanese Matcha Green Tea
I got 1 oz of this tea free in a recent promotion and must say that I am thoroughly enjoying it. Every morning, I place about 1/2 teaspoon in my morning smoothie and it not only makes me feel better, but it gives me added confidence that U am doing what I can to beat this virus by boosting my antioxidants. I've also tried the tea straight (with a whisk). I like it, but it's even better if you add a little coconut milk to it.
