MATCHA ORIGIN & TRADITION

MATCHA TEA originated in Japan, and imported from Uji Kyoto - is located in the region between Kansai Uji Kyoto And the Pacific Kyoto, is Japan's most prolific tea-growing region, accounting for about 3% of Japan's Cermonial production each year. The MATCHA we order is in small quantities to assure its freshness and quality.

The traditional Japanese tea ceremony is a spiritual experience which symbolizes harmony, respect, purity and tranquility which defines Matcha to the core. Only the highest quality leaves are used for Matcha in the tea ceremony.

METHOD OF GROWING MATCHA


Step 1 - Shaded from direct sunlight

MATCHA uses tea leaves completely shaded from direct sunlight.


Step 2 - Selectively Handpicked

During the first harvest, the tea leaves are carefully handpicked (for Matcha) as guaranteed by experts in quality, freshness and flavour.


Step 3 - Steamed and Air-dried

After the harvesting process is completed, the tea leaves are suitably steamed to maintain its nutritional factor.



Step 4 - The Stems and Veins

Using special machinery the stems and veins are separated from the leaves then properly aired and dried leaving behind the residue called Tencha.


Step 5 - Stone milling Process

This Tencha is then stone-milled into a fine powder to form MATCHA.


Step 6 - Finely Milled Matcha

The finely milled MATCHA Green Powder.


MATCHA – POLYPHENOLS

The Polyphenols found in green tea are more commonly known as flavanoids or catechins. One of the main catechins is a rich antioxidant called Epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG). EGCG is 100 times more effective than Vitamin C and 25 times more effective than Vitamin E at protecting cells and DNA from free radical damage linked to many diseases. This antioxidant has twice the benefits of Resveratrol, a polyphenol found in red wine, that is also known to limit the negative effects of smoking and a fatty diet.
It protects against infections, Cancer, HIV, Heart problems, Liver disease, Radiation and Ageing.

One cup of matcha is the equivalent in nutritional values and antioxydants of 10 cups or regular green tea because the leaf is consumed not just steeped. It is proven healthy alternative to coffee and other warm drinks. Also matcha powder is used as an ingredient in various kinds of foods.

The miraculous health benefits of Matcha Green Tea are:

1. Cancer prevention

Green tea contains potent antioxidants called catechins, which scavenge for dangerous free radicals in the body. The most powerful catechin found in green tea is EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), which is believed to be a powerful anti-carcinogen.

A 2003 University of Colorado study confirmed that drinking 1 cup of matcha green tea has 137 times the amount of antioxidant EGCG compared to a conventional cup of green tea.

2. Burns Fat X 4 times Faster

A 1999 study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that green tea extract rich in catechins has thermogenic properties and promotes fat oxidation beyond that explained by the tea’s caffeine content.

It was found that consuming green tea increased thermogenesis (the body’s rate of burning calories) from 8-10% to 35-43% of daily energy expenditure.

Another study demonstrated that exercising immediately after drinking matcha green tea resulted in 25% more fat burning during exercise.​

3. Natural boost in energy

Matcha green tea provides you with good, clean energy that keeps you going for hours after enjoying your cuppa. Like all green teas, Matcha does contain caffeine, but the boosting effect is attributed to the combination of other nutrients.

4. Anti-aging properties

The anti-aging benefits are connected with the abundance of the tea’s antioxidants. The drink fights off diseases and protects against UV radiation, thus maintaining the skin’s youthful appearance.

5. Relaxing agent

Despite its caffeine content, Matcha has a calming effect on the body and can be used prior to meditation. Its L-theanine (a relaxing agent) balances the body and lowers stress levels.

6. Improves memory and concentration

Matcha green tea contains up to 5 times more L-theanine than conventional green tea. L-theanine is an amino acid with psychoactive properties, capable of inducing alpha wave activity in the brain.

Stress is known to induce the brain’s beta wave activity, leading to a more agitated state. Alpha wave activity can relieve stress, promote relaxation and even lower blood pressure.

Although matcha contains some caffeine, the relaxing properties of L-theanine counterbalance the “jittery” effects of caffeine. Therefore, a cup of matcha green tea promotes concentration and clarity of mind without producing any of the nervous energy typically associated with coffee.

7. Boosts immune system

Matcha’s antioxidants act as natural antibiotics and support the immune system. Furthermore, the tea is rich in potassium, vitamins A and C, iron and calcium, that all contribute to the body’s defense system.

8. Lower levels of bad cholesterol

A 2011 study featured in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition demonstrated that administration of green tea beverages or extracts significantly lowered serum total cholesterol and LDL “Evil Emperor Zurg” cholesterol concentrations.​

9. Detox effect

With the help of its chlorophyll, Matcha tea detoxifies the body and removes heavy metals and other dangerous substances.​

10. Improves Skin, Hair and Nails

Matcha tea has antioxidants which reduces skin ageing process and makes skin look younger. Matcha tea helps strengthening and re-growth of hair roots and skin cells as it contains epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).​
