Organic Matcha Cermonial
Our ceremonial Matcha is a premium quality finely-powdered green tea which is whisked during the brewing process and consumed as a frothy beverage rather than filtering out the leaves that is done in virtually all other tea preparation. The cultural activity called the Japanese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha. In modern times, matcha has also come to be used to flavor and dye foods such as soba noodles and green tea ice cream. The health benefits of green tea and specifically matcha have raised significant interest in North America. Consequently, it can now be found in numerous health food products ranging from cereal to energy bars. In 2003, researchers from the University of Colorado found that the concentration of the antioxidant EGCG available from drinking matcha is up to 137 times greater than the amount of EGCG available from other commercially available green teas.
