Health Benefits of Premium Matcha
Matcha green tea provides a powerful concentration of nutritional goodness. With normal green tea, you lose up to 90% of the nutrients as you strain away the leaves.
With match, the leaves are steamed, stemmed, dried, and stone-ground into a fine emerald powder so you consume the whole leaf and 100% of the nutrients.
An Antioxidant Elixir

A Calming Energy Boost
Matcha is particularly rich in antioxidants, like catechin and EGCg, which bond with the caffeine, slowing down and smoothing out how your body processes it. That means you get all the perks of caffeine—without the sharp spike and crash—for a clean burst of energy without the jitters. The slow release of energy due to theophylline supports the proper functioning of adrenal glands and maintains optimum hormonal levels.
Thanks to the matcha’s shade-grown cultivation, it’s rich in amino acids like L-theanine. L-theanine which promote both profound relaxation and sharp concentration—perfect for meditation or making it through a stressful day with supreme equanimity. Check out this study which shows the relaxing effects of L-theanine and this one which shows how it reduces stress.
