Nature’s Superfoods Matcha is NOT your typical green tea. Although they come from the same plant Camellia sinensis, Matcha contains much more nutrients than the typical green tea (1 cup of Matcha tea is equivalent to 10-15 cups of typical green tea). Matcha is both a stimulant and a relaxant, providing 4-6 hours of steady energy.
MATCHA: Matcha contains good amounts of antioxidant polyphenols, which include flavanols, flavonoids and phenolic acid which are commonly known as catechins. It is also loaded with amino acids, such as L-theanine and theophylline which makes it a nutrient-dense superfood. It is exceptionally high in chlorophyll which helps in detoxification. Additionally, Matcha tea also provides substantial quantities of potassium, vitamin A & C, iron, protein and calcium!
Organic premium grade matcha powder is made from first flush tea leaves from the beautiful tea fields in Kyoto. The finest Matcha is produced from young and tender leaves hand-picked during the very first harvest of the season (first flush). The tea leaves are then steamed, dried and then milled into fine Matcha powder. First-flush Matcha is the Matcha of choice, as it contains significantly more chlorophyll and amino acids (including L-theanine) than the leaves that are picked later in the season. The more chlorophyll, the more vibrant green the powder will be. And the more L-theanine amino acid, the sweeter (umami plant sweetness) the Matcha will taste.
