Japanese tea health benefits

Japanese tea—particularly green tea—is the everyday elixir consumed by people across the Japanese archipelago! Enjoyed for the myriad of sweet and earthy tasting notes you can find throughout our range, our Japanese green teas further boast multiple health benefits.

Like other green teas from around the world, Japanese green tea is high in antioxidants and polyphenols. According to some studies, drinking these antioxidants and catechins over an extended duration (think a cup a day!) will combat ageing and help your body regenerate cells more efficiently. This may result in tea drinkers achieving healthier-looking skin and hair!

Along with antioxidants comes flavinoids. Such compounds present in Japanese green tea are thought to promote positive health, brain, and bone health! The anti-inflammatory properties further assist in lowering high blood pressure and improving glycemic control.

    How to brew a cup of matcha

    To brew the perfect cup of matcha you need to do the following.

  • Scoop one teaspoon of matcha powder and add to your matcha tea bowl
  • Pour in approximately 50ml of water at 80°C. Boiling water will burn the tea, making it bitter

  • Top up your mixture with more hot water, stirring as you do
  • Serve and enjoy!
