What is Matcha?

If you haven’t heard of matcha before, then it might be time to do a little bit of research. Matcha is a type of green tea that is grown in the mountains of Japan. It is processed by hand and the stone age method, and contains approximately 75% matcha powder. Which means that each cup of tea made from matcha contains roughly 3-3.5 grams of pure Matcha Powder! Compare that to most teas that you can buy at stores that contain around 30-35% tea leaves. Forreference, let’s compare some common teas:

Black Tea – Contains lots of flavonoids and other antioxidants , but relatively low on caffeine content

Rooibos Tea – Contains high amounts of antioxidants and also has a small amount of caffeine content

Youthfulness Caffeine Free Green Tea – Contains very high amounts of antioxidant flavonoids and very low amounts of caffeine
