Matcha Tea is a form of green tea. Its name is derived from the words, “cha” (tea) and “ma” (powder) and like all other true teas, comes from the Camellia sinensis plant. Matcha refers to the method in which the leaves are grown and processed. After the leaves are picked, they are ground to a fine powder.
Matcha tea's nutritional content is superior to other green teas which are steeped and then discarded because the whole leaf of Matcha is entirely consumed. Matcha contains the amino acid L-Theanine, shown to promote relaxation and a state of well-being and for this reason, it was traditionally consumed by Japanese monks to support their meditation practice.
