What is Matcha Green Tea?

Matcha tea is made from high quality green tea leaves which are stone-ground into a fine, vibrant green powder that is ready to use. With ceremonial-grade matcha, the whole leaf is harvested by hand and used to create a powder that is up to ten times more potent than standard green tea. Matcha has been used for hundreds of years, and it remains a staple of the Japanese diet. We are delighted to provide a carefully selected organic ceremonial-grade, matcha green tea powder, which has an incredibly delicate and naturally sweet taste. Our matcha green tea is packaged in a Miron violet glass container in order to preserve its high nutritional content.

 

What Are the Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea?

Matcha was first discovered 1181 A.D, when the Zen monk, Eisai, brought green tea seeds to Japan and planted them in the temple grounds of Kyoto. He then proceeded to grind the leaves into a powder and used them in tea ceremonies. The word spread, and ritual matcha tea ceremonies became popular all over Asia. Many monks and spiritual seekers honour matcha as it helps to create increased feelings of calm, mental alertness and focused states which are beneficial for a meditation practice.

Modern science has revealed that matcha contains a ‘feel-good’ compound called L-theanine, and it’s this amino acid which helps to stimulate alpha brain waves. A Cochrane Review Study shows that regular use of green tea may help to lower blood pressure. Matcha gets its bright emerald-green colour because it contains a high concentration of chlorophyll, plus it’s also rich in antioxidants, fibre, minerals and vitamins A, B-complex, C, E and K. It is commonly enjoyed as a nutritional alternative to coffee.

 

What Does Ceremonial-Grade Mean?

Matcha green tea is graded depending on several factors including the location that it is grown in and the quality of the leaves. Some of the most common grades include kitchen, cooking and culinary-grade matcha, but ceremonial-grade is reserved the highest grade green tea leaves that can be used in matcha tea ceremonies.

What is Miron Violet Glass?

Miron violet glass containers are able to protect their contents from the harmful effects of UV light. They help to maintain the freshness and nutritional potency of the matcha, and extend its shelf-life. Miron violet glass containers also provide a green way to store this powerful green powder, as they are fully recyclable and reusable too.
