New To Matcha?
One cup of Matcha is equivalent to ten cups of brewed green tea in terms of nutritional value.
What is Matcha Powdered Green Tea?
Matcha is premium green tea powder from Japan used for drinking as tea or as an ingredient in recipes. While other green teas are grown throughout the world, Matcha is unique to Japan. It is the heart of the Japanese way of tea and has been celebrated in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony for hundreds of years.
What does Matcha taste like?
Complex. Alluring. Bitter. Misunderstood. Addicting. Chlorophyll and amino acids give Matcha its unique rich taste, an initial vegetal, astringent taste, followed by a lingering sweetness. Matcha made in the traditional Japanese style, whisked with water, is a full-bodied green tea. The intensity of the experience compares to one’s first taste of dark chocolate or red wine. When added as an ingredient, the taste of Matcha becomes subtler. It adds the flavor and color of green tea to your creation, be it a smoothie, latte, savory sauce or pastry.
What are the health benefits of Matcha?
Matcha is renowned for numerous health benefits. It is rich in nutrients, antioxidants, fiber and chlorophyll. It is sugar-free, an ideal drink for diabetics and others wishing to reduce their sugar intake. The health benefits of Matcha exceed those of other green teas because Matcha drinkers ingest the whole leaf, not just the brewed water. One glass of Matcha is the equivalent of 10 glasses of green tea in terms of nutritional value and antioxidant content.
