Matcha is essentially a very concentrated form of Green Tea. It is full of essential vitamins and minerals. The tea bushes are grown under shade which dramatically increases the Chlorophyll content of the leaf – which is particularly rich in antioxidants.
When you drink regular green tea, you throw away the leaves afterwards. It’s a bit like boiling spinach, throwing away the spinach and just drinking the water! You’ll get some of the nutrients, but you’re throwing away the best bit. Matcha is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every last bit of goodness.
