Boost your immune system premium Matcha powder, Tencha Green Tea grown in the shade to boost the impact of its anti-oxidising, chlorophyll. Health promoting , super nutrional, Green Tea powder that you ingest to get all the nutritional benefits. We’ve added raspberries and goji berries because they taste great and help boost immunity.

What is matcha?

Matcha, otherwise known as matcha green tea, or matcha powder, is the finely ground powder of the Camellia sinensis leaf. Farmers grow matcha by covering their tea plants for approximately twenty to thirty days before harvest to avoid direct sunlight.  This increases chlorophyll production, boosts the amino acid content, and gives the plant a darker green hue.  Once the tea leaves are harvested, the stems and veins are removed, and the leaves are dried before being ground into a fine powder known as matcha.  

 

How is matcha different to green tea?

Matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant, as does green tea.  However, this is where the similarities end.  With green tea you remove the whole leaves after they have infused in hot water, before you drink it. With matcha you ingest the whole leaf, meaning none of the health benefits of the green tea are lost. Matcha, therefore, packs in a more concentrated number of antioxidants and beneficial plant compounds. 

 

What does Raspberry Matcha taste like?

Raspberry and goji berries have been added to our premium Pure Matcha powder for additional sweetness and to promote a healthy immune system.  Raspberry Matcha will not only satisfy your sweet tooth, but it will also provide you with an energy boost minus the jitteriness of coffee.

 

What are the benefits of matcha?

We don’t call matcha a super brew for nothing!  Matcha certainly packs a punch when it comes to health benefits, including:

  • The increased levels of chlorophyll in matcha can reduce inflammation within the body, which can be great for aches and pains, and problems such as acne and swelling. 
  • Matcha is also generally high in antioxidants, which help stabilise harmful free radicals.
  • Green tea has been shown to enhance weight loss as it has the potential to increase fat burn during exercise.
  • Studies have shown that green tea can promote heart health development as it can reduce LDL (bad) cholesterol, allowing easier transport of blood flow.
  • Matcha can help improve brain function due to the high levels of L-theanine present in the leaves.

 

Matcha side-effects

You might ask, is it safe to drink matcha every day?  The period of growth in the shade increases the production of caffeine by the Camellia sinensis plant.  Therefore, matcha has a higher concentration of caffeine than green tea. If you think you may be sensitive to caffeine, or if you are pregnant, we recommend that you consult your healthcare professional prior to consuming matcha.

2) Add a small amount of warm water/milk/substitute and mix into a smooth paste.

3) Top up with the rest of the liquid whilst stirring briskly.

    :

    I have tried the pure matcha and loved it, so I thought I would try something new. The Raspberry addition is perfect as it gives it a nice sweet taste but not too sweet, so the balance is just right. Would definitely recommend if you are looking to branch out into different flavoured matcha’s.

    Really nice and fruity. Full of flavour and great for an afternoon pick up.
