What Is Matcha Tea?
Matcha powder is essentially a more potent green tea. Because the whole leaf is ground into a fine powder and consumed entirely (instead of steeped), matcha offers more potent health benefits than steeped green tea. People have been drinking matcha for centuries, but it’s recently gained popularity again due to its unique earthy taste and long list of health benefits. As an ingredient, culinary grade matcha can add a unique savoriness to a range of recipes as it compliments almost any dish. As a straight drink, there are different grades of matcha and many ways to prepare it. From savory dishes and baked goods to smoothies and lattes, you can add matcha powder to almost anything. Matcha is often praised for its unique flavor profile, but if you don’t like the taste of matcha you can still get all the health benefits from matcha capsules.
Matcha powder is packed with antioxidants. It contains 137 times the antioxidants of brewed green tea. There are plenty of health benefits to drinking matcha, including regulation of cholesterol, blood sugar and harmful blood fats, as well as protection against kidney damage. Some studies also suggest that matcha may prevent age-related cognitive impairment, reduce the risk of stroke and diabetes, keep blood pressure in check, strengthen bones, and help prevent several forms of cancer. In addition to this long list of health benefits, matcha is also great for weight loss support as it curbs hunger and increases thermogenesis (your body’s rate of burning calories). Just 1 to 2 teaspoons of the stuff gives you a potent energy boost and focused energy that lasts longer than coffee and doesn’t produce any of the negative side effects like the jitters or caffeine crash.
Which Matcha Is Right for Me?
Some basic rules for buying matcha powder are:
- Buy organic so you get the purist tasting matcha
- Check the certifications and lab-tests: You want to make sure the matcha you’re buying is certified organic and lab-tested for chemicals (such as lead).
- For straight cups of tea: a high-quality organic ceremonial grade matcha powder is essential. Ceremonial grade matcha is made from the leaves at the top of the plant, which are the youngest and have more chlorophyll. This gives it a bright green color and sweeter smoother flavor.
- For recipes, smoothies and lattes: culinary grade matcha is ideal. Culinary grade matcha is made from more mature green tea leaves and has a stronger flavor that works well in combination with other flavors.
We also offer Vita Matcha if you’re looking for an extra dose of added vitamins, as well as Matcha Capsules if you don’t like the taste of green tea but you want the health benefits.
