Japanese Matcha green tea

Our 100% GRADE A Premium Usacha Matcha Green Tea Powder is imported from Shizuoka, Japan. Matcha is the tea used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies.

Matcha is a high-quality green tea powder with a fine texture. Its tea leaves are grown only in Japan and are shielded from sunlight several weeks before harvest. This causes the leaves to darken and produce higher levels of amino acids. After the best tea leaves are picked, they are dried out and ground manually to a fine powder on a stone mill to protect the nutrients in the leaves.

Matcha tea powder was first cultivated by Japanese Zen priests, who developed rituals incorporating matcha. During Japanese tea ceremonies, participants prepare matcha green tea in a series of choreographed steps to achieve beauty, tranquility, and enlightenment. Matcha is the only tea used in these ceremonies, which can range from formal to social.

Due to its high levels of amino acids, matcha green tea has a deep and complex taste, initially bitter but with a sweet aftertaste.

Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

Many people drink green tea for its health benefits or to lose weight, but matcha does much more than this. Matcha green tea powder contains more antioxidants than virtually any other food, including acai berries and pomegranates. It also contains high levels of L-theanine, an amino acid which lowers stress levels but preserves alertness. The L-theanine counteracts the caffeine in the tea, making matcha ideal for creating a mental state of relaxed alertness.

Since matcha leaves are grown in the shade and protected from sunlight, matcha boasts the richest source of chlorophyll compared to all other teas. Chlorophyll is a powerful cleansing and detoxifying agent that helps rid the body of heavy metals and other toxins. It is also responsible for the powder's signature verdant color.
