Matcha powder has a long and rich history that dates back centuries in Japan. The origins of matcha can be traced to China, 

where the cultivation and consumption of powdered tea began during the Tang Dynasty.

Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea.

It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: The green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown 

for about three weeks before harvest, and the stems and veins are removed in processing.

The traditional Chinese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha. In modern times, 

matcha also has come to be used to flavour and dye foods such as mochi and soba noodles, green tea ice cream,etc.

It’s a special form of green tea:Matcha literally means “powdered tea.” When you order traditional green tea, 

components from the leaves get infused into the hot water, then the leaves are discarded. With matcha, you’re drinking 

the actual leaves, which have been finely powdered and made into a solution, traditionally by mixing about a teaspoon of 

matcha powder with a third cup of hot water (heated to less than a boil), which is then whisked with a bamboo brush until it froths.

Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it’s a more potent source of nutrients than steeped green tea. 

In addition to providing small amounts of vitamins and minerals, matcha is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been tied to 

protection against heart disease and cancer, as well as better blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. 

Another polyphenol in matcha called EGCG has been shown in research to boost metabolism, and slow or halt the growth of cancer cells.

High in Antioxidants: Matcha is rich in catechins, a type of antioxidant that helps protect the body against damage from free radicals. 

The most abundant catechin in matcha is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), which has been studied for its potential health-promoting properties.

Boosts Energy and Focus: Matcha contains caffeine, which provides a gentle and sustained energy boost. The combination of caffeine 

and the amino acid L-theanine in matcha promotes a state of calm alertness, enhancing concentration and mental focus without the 

jittery side effects associated with other caffeinated beverages.

Supports Metabolism and Weight Management: Some studies suggest that matcha may help increase metabolism and fat oxidation, potentially 

aiding in weight management. The catechins in matcha have been shown to promote thermogenesis (the body's ability to burn calories) 

and may help support a healthy weight when combined with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Calming and Relaxing: Despite containing caffeine, matcha has a calming effect on the mind and body. 

L-theanine, an amino acid found in matcha, promotes relaxation and helps reduce stress and anxiety.

Detoxifies and Supports Overall Health: Matcha contains chlorophyll, a natural detoxifier that helps eliminate toxins from the body. 

It also has anti-inflammatory properties and may support a healthy immune system.

Promotes Heart Health: Some research suggests that the catechins in matcha may help reduce the risk of heart disease 

by lowering bad cholesterol levels (LDL) and triglycerides, and improving overall cardiovascular health.

Enhances Cognitive Function: Matcha has been studied for its potential cognitive-enhancing effects. 

The combination of caffeine and L-theanine may improve memory, attention, and cognitive performance.

Supports Immune Function: Matcha contains various nutrients, including vitamins (such as vitamin C) 

and minerals (such as potassium and magnesium), which play a role in supporting a healthy immune system.
