Matcha is a fine-grade powdered Japanese green tea, rich in antioxidants and high in caffeine. It is produced in nearly the same way as Gyokuro — a premium green derived from specialised cultivars of the tea plant. Just before being harvested, the leaves are shaded for three weeks. This method encourages an increase in chlorophyll content, creating a more vibrant green colour.
Traditionally used in a Japanese tea ceremony, matcha’s recent popularity is no surprise, given the unusually high concentration of nutrients it contains. Unlike regular green teas, the ground leaves are consumed in their entirety rather than simply infused. This means that chlorophyll, l-theanine and caffeine levels in the powdered tea are plentiful and beneficial. These provide anti-aging benefits, along with a focus and energy boost for the body.
Free shipping is available for all orders over $70. Alternatively, pop into one of The Tea Centre's 9 tea shops located in Queensland, New South Wales and the ACT.
