The New Year gives the opportunity to start fresh and learn some new habits for staying healthy. We like to do this with Matcha tea moments!
Tea purifies spirit, removes anxiety and nervousness, brings ease and comfort, and is conducive to meditation. ~Author Unknown
Why Matcha? Approximately 10 times more powerful than regular green tea, Matcha is by far the most potent form of green tea available on the market today. Shade grown and ground to a fine powder, Matcha is super-charged full of antioxidants, catechins and L-theanine, making it one of the healthiest natural beverages on the planet.
Matcha leaves are gently picked, and only the youngest, most tender leaves are harvested. The plants are shade grown 2-4 weeks prior to harvesting, boosting chlorophyll and l-theanine content. These precious, extremely green leaves are then lightly steamed to halt enzymatic breakdown, de-stemmed, and finally ground to an ultra-fine powder on traditional stone grinders. Quality matcha companies will vacuum seal the powder to ensure ultimate freshness and taste.
Keep in mind, not all matcha is created equal; matcha has many grades, Ceremonial being the smoothest tasting and chocked full of nutrients. The Second Harvest grade is good too, but slightly more astringent. From there the grades become bitterer and more yellow in color, ideal only for lattes or baking.
