Organic Matcha Powder
Our green matcha tea will get you and your body going. Matcha has a sweet and slightly tart taste. It is made from ground leaves of the tea plant and has a very long tradition, especially in Asia. It serves both as a daily coffee substitute and as a creative drink, such as Power Matcha with oat milk, coconut blossom sugar and a pinch of cinnamon.
But what is matcha?
Matcha is green tea made from the Tencha tea variety. After the leaves of the tea plant have been picked, they are steamed and dried. Of course, all the ingredients are completely preserved. The leaves are then ground into a fine powder. As mentioned above, Matcha has a long tradition in China, where it has been consumed for centuries.
Effect of Matcha powder
Matcha tea is a real stimulant and that is why it is drunk in the morning instead of coffee. Matcha powder contains more caffeine than other types of green tea. However, the invigorating effect of Matcha powder comes later, but is much more lasting. This is because the caffeine in matcha tea is bound to secondary plant substances and is therefore only released in the intestine. In addition to caffeine, matcha powder also contains the amino acid L-theanine. This combination ensures relaxation and at the same time more concentration and attention.
Is Matcha healthy?
Matcha powder contains many health-promoting ingredients. Besides theanine and caffeine, it contains iron, potassium, calcium as well as the B vitamins, vitamins A, E and K. The advantage over conventional green tea is that matcha tea is finely ground, so the entire powder, including all the ingredients, is absorbed when consumed. Normal tea, on the other hand, is boiled, so that fewer nutrients are contained in the tea. Other advantages of matcha are the antioxidants it contains, such as polyphenols and catechins, which make matcha a real superfood. Matcha is said to have a positive effect on the body in cases of cardiovascular diseases, cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.
Use of the Matcha powder
Add 1/4 teaspoon of matcha to a cup of hot water and whisk.
