Matcha is a special variety of green tea, stoneground into a fine powder where all of the nutritional properties of the tea leaves are ingested, not letting any of the same goodness go to waste. Matcha tea leaves are shade grown before harvest, and this significantly increases the chlorophyll and amino acid content well above that of standard green teas.
Now this fine nutritional powder is available to establishments through the brand Matcha Matcha. Its product is 100 percent pure organic matcha sourced from the hills of Uji in Japan, the birthplace of Japanese tea.
Matcha can be enjoyed in lattes, smoothies, chia puddings or raw or baked treats.
Just one cup of matcha is reported to have the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of regular green tea and over 100 times the antioxidants. For more information or to order contact Kate on firstname.lastname@example.org or visit their website www.matchamatcha.co.nz.
