Single-Origin Japanese Ceremonial Matcha 30 grams (approx. 30 cups)
A time-honored practice, our single-origin matcha is shade-grown on a 7th generation family farm in the birthplace of matcha, Uji, Kyoto prefecture, Japan.
Instantly set apart by our vibrant green color and umami taste, you'll notice the difference throughout the day when consuming matcha directly from the source in Uji.
Rich in Vitamins A,C, K, E, B complex and the hero amino acid which gives us caffeine without the jitters; l'theanine.
The average cup of matcha contains around 35 - 40 mg of caffeine, and regular green tea has even less, while the average cup of coffee sits between 90 and 120 mg.
The difference? caffeine in matcha activates the GABA waves in our brain whereas caffeine in coffee activates beta waves.
This means l'theanine gives us a sustained level of focus and calm while caffeine gives us the feeling of prolonged energy.
Did you know 1 cup of matcha has as many antioxidants as 10 cups of brewed green tea? Matcha is filled with powerful and necessary antioxidants such as EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), Catechins, and theanine. EGCG can speed up your metabolism and improve blood sugar and cholesterol levels. Catechins are believed to help prevent cell damage. Theanine is a powerful mood-booster, increasing your levels of dopamine, serotonin, and other important chemicals. This can also help ease anxiety, blood pressure, and may provide mental clarity.
