READ ABOUT MATCHA

抹茶 or matcha means ''ground tea'', which is exactly what it is. Matcha is a green tea powder originating from Japan and a centuries-old tea ceremony.

Matcha is grown with Goko or Samidori tea plants. During the cultivation process, the tea plants are covered with a cover the last period before harvest. This causes that the tea leaves are only reached by 10% sunlight and the chlorophyll in the plant increases, which in turn causes the vitamin level in the tea to increase. Matcha is enriched with vitamins and antioxidants. In addition, the substance L-theanine also increases, which means that the caffeine content is higher in matcha compared to regular tea. It is usually said that a cup of matcha contains around 50mg of caffeine. L-theanine is a caffeine-like substance that increases focus and provides an invigorating effect throughout the day. Therefore, matcha is an excellent choice to coffee.
