Ingest all the nutritional benefits of Twist Teas super powered Matcha. Green Tea powder made from 100% premium Tencha Green Tea grown in the shade to boost its chlorophyll content and anti-oxidising impact. We’ve added turmeric, ginger and cinnamon because it tastes great and helps to detox and cleanse.

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 Turmeric Matcha taste like?

Turmeric, liquorice, cinnamon, and ginger have been added to our premium matcha powder to offer a spicy kickstart to your day. Turmeric Matcha will not only provide you with an energy boost minus the jitteriness of coffee but it will help to support your immune system.

 

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.
