An antioxidant powerhouse
Regular green tea is already known as being somewhat of an antioxidant powerhouse. But matcha tea boasts even more benefits thanks to the way in which we drink it. When making tea, you typically steep the leaves in hot water and then discard them before drinking. With Matcha tea, you are actually consuming the entire tea leaf when you drink it, getting the full benefits of the tea. The antioxidants in matcha tea can help lower blood pressure, reduce your risk of heart disease, and even boost your metabolism.
How to drink matcha tea
Firstly, you’ll want to sift the matcha powder into a matcha bowl or mug, this prevents the tea clumping together when you mix it with your hot water.
The next step is to pour in a small amount of hot water, and whisk vigorously from side to side – either directly back and forth or in a “W” pattern. This evenly disperses the powder in the water and creates a foamy layer on top.
Traditional matcha green tea, like our Ceremonial Green Matcha is made by mixing the green tea powder with water only. Designed to be savoured and sipped slowly. To make a delicious matcha latte, add your choice of steamed milk to our Pure Organic Matcha. This organic powder is naturally sweet and mild and can also be used to create delicious desserts or baked goodies.
