Organic Matcha Green Tea

Matcha Green Tea is nothing like the so-called green teas sold in tea bags. Connoisseurs of green tea prefer to source organic green tea from Japan, where it is still picked and processed in the traditional manner. While organic sencha green tea is still relatively easy to find, organic matcha green tea is becoming rare – even in Japan. This is a very valuable product for those who care about their health.

Green tea is much healthier than black tea, which has been around a lot longer. They are both from the same tea plant; the prime difference is in their production methods. Black tea leaves are produced by roasting, whereas green tea is produced by lightly steaming. The roasting of black tea results in it oxidising and losing highly beneficial polyphenols.

Matcha Green Tea: A Rich Source of EGCG, a Powerful Polyphenol

Studies have shown that polyphenols in green tea are especially beneficial and are understood to give the body superior antioxidant protection to vitamin C or vitamin E. Epigallocatechin gallate – or EGCG as it is more popularly known – is the best known of these polyphenols. Green tea has been shown to support healthy cholesterol levels, balanced blood sugar levels and a strong immune system. What's more, it is widely believed to help stimulate weight loss.

Sencha green tea and match green tea are regarded as the highest quality green teas, with matcha considered the most exclusive. In Japan, it is used in official tea ceremonies and for other special occasions. It is to the Japanese what a special Bordeaux is to the French. Only the finest leaves grown in covered areas is used to produce matcha green tea. The leaves are steamed, then dried and stone-ground. In Japanese tea ceremonies, the powder is measured out with a small bamboo spoon into a porcelain dish, whereafter it is whisked with a bamboo brush into a sweet, highly nutritious green drink.

Green tea is highly tolerable, particularly in comparison to black tea or coffee. In Japan and other cultures that drink green tea, the average consumption is 3 cups per day. This equates to approximately 250-300mg of polyphenols per day. Green tea does have a slight stimulating effect, though, and excessive consumption before bedtime may cause difficulties in getting to sleep. However, it has been shown that those who are particularly sensitive to caffeine are much less sensitive to green tea.
