Matcha Maiden Matcha Green Tea Powder consists only of pure green tea leaves stone ground into a fine but densely nutritious bright green powder, Mix N Matcha is Japanese certified organic and filled with so much green goodness that it has up to 137 times the antioxidants and 10 times the nutritional equivalent of regular green tea. Matcha Maiden searched far and wide to source a beautiful blend of 100% pure matcha from the lush rolling hills of Uji in Kyoto, Japan – the mecca of the matcha world.
Despite a long traditional and cultural history among Zen Buddhist monks who have used it for centuries in their meditation practices, matcha tea powder has recently undergone a modern revival. Aside from a beautiful earthy flavour and amazing versatility in its powdered form, it’s no surprise given that there are so many matcha green tea benefits for mind, body and soul. In an age where superfoods are king for their convenience and potency, matcha has emerged as a key leader in the health food boom
With regular green tea, you brew the leaves in hot water and then throw them out afterwards. By contrast, matcha drinkers consume the whole leaf dissolved in the water along with all the green goodness they contain. Because of its concentrated form, matcha has up to 137 times the antioxidants and up to 10 times the nutritional content of regular green tea. Matcha tea leaves are also grown under special shades to increase the chlorophyll and antioxidant levels even further.
WHY IS IT GOOD FOR YOU?
IMMUNITY – According to the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) antioxidant measuring scale, matcha has a 1300 units per gram rating (vs pomegranates 105 units per gram or blueberries 91 units)! Antioxidants can help boost the immune system and fight free radicals in the body that can contribute to inflammation, tissue damaging and aging.
METABOLISM – Matcha contains a particular class of antioxidants called catechins, notably epigallocatechin gallate or EGCG, which is known to help enhance metabolism. Matcha can have up to 137 times the EGCGs that regular green tea contains!
ENERGY AND FOCUS – Matcha is also full of useful amino acids, particularly L-theanine that is unique to tea. This is the amino acid that stimulates alpha wave production in the brain to create relaxation and concentration at the same time, providing alertness without the shakes and jitters of coffee. It helps provide a sustained energy release over hours, hence matcha’s meditative origins.
FREE FROM – Matcha is naturally sugar free, dairy free, almost calorie free and naturally vegan friendly. Everyone’s best friend!
VITAMINS & MINERALS – Here is where we could get super technical with bioflavonoids and other confusing words. To simplify, lots of other goodies in green tea (and therefore matcha) can help detoxify and enhance wellbeing. For example, the special way it is grown in the shade helps increase the chlorophyll in the leaves, which is known to be a natural detoxifying agent.
