Matcha Green Tea, originally discovered by a Buddhist monk in the 12th century is a wildly popular tea today. Matcha is finely ground green tea leaves that are whisked (with a special Matcha whisk) into hot water in a zigzag pattern. This type of Matcha whisk will create a foam on top. Then more hot water or milk is added. There a many great health benefits to drinking Matcha. It is rich in antioxidants, it boosts brain function with L-theranine which is a compound that impacts the way the caffeine in Matcha is processed. It provides energy without the crash. If that’s not enough it has been linked to studies for it’s effects on cancer cells and decreasing tumor size.
So, whether you like Matcha Green Tea for the taste, the caffeine boost without the crash, or the health benefits you can rest assured that it is freshly sourced and ready for brewing!
