Origins and the Traditional Landscape

Green Matcha tea is taking the healthy living world by storm.  The green brew is making a big name outside its old traditional ritual setting and there’s a good health reason for that. But what is exactly Matcha tea and why is it becoming a bit of a present day urban legend in the Tea world?

Matcha is made from the Tencha tea leaf, most popularly grown in the southern half of Japan, which is then de-stemmed, de-veined and stone-ground to a very fine dark green powder.

To make a Matcha Green Tea, the powder is placed in bowls, mixed with warm water and whisked with a traditional bamboo whisk.

Health Benefits of Matcha Tea

Everyone in healthy lifestyle and conscious living circles is talking about the benefits of the tea. In recent years, normal green tea had already been recognised for its health properties, most popular being its anti-oxidising, cancer-fighting and weight-loss properties. What makes Matcha Tea so remarkable is the way it is harvested and processed

Matcha Tea:

  • Has around 137 times the antioxidants of the average green tea.
  • Contains L-theanine which promotes calmness. It helps your serotonin levels which aids you in getting a more restful night’s sleep
  • Is made up of clean energising properties because of its caffeine content. However, it is different to the regular caffeine boost, in that there are no side effects such as nervousness and hyper-tension.
  • Increases metabolism and helps the body burn fat four times faster than average.
  • Is a strong detoxifier, cleaning toxins and heavy metals from the body.
  • Holds substantial quantities of Potassium, Vitamins A & C, Iron, Protein and Calcium helping the body boost its immune system.

Different Shades and Grades of Green

The most popular grade of Matcha Green Tea is the premium grade which is high quality grade and available at decent prices. There is also a culinary grade Matcha which is of a lesser quality but is much cheaper and can be used to make things like cakes and smoothies.  I would advise people against buying the culinary grade Matcha as you do not get full value for your money.
