Matcha is made from tea leaves that are shade-grown before the leaves are harvested in order to thereby increase the amount of chlorophyll and amino acids in the leaves. In recent years, Matcha has become more and more popular worldwide, which i.a. due to its unique taste, but also the many health benefits.
Matcha is a source of caffeine and theanine, two substances that work together to provide a mild and smooth energy that lasts for hours. Theanine is also known to promote relaxation and reduce stress levels, which can help improve focus and concentration or it can be good if you are going to an exam or need to do a little extra in everyday life. In addition, Matcha is rich in antioxidants that help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. In fact, Matcha contains over 100 times more antioxidants than regular green tea. According to many studies, there is much evidence that antioxidants can help reduce the risk of various diseases, e.g. cancer and heart disease, as well as improving skin health and appearance.
Matcha has also been used in traditional Chinese medicine for centuries for its anti-inflammatory and immune-boosting properties. Matcha can help reduce inflammation in the body, which can lead to a number of diseases and disorders, while strengthening the immune system to protect against disease and infection.
But Matcha isn't just about health benefits - it also has a rich cultural history and significance in China. Matcha is part of the Chinese tea ceremony, where tea is a symbolic act that represents harmony, respect and tranquility. This aspect of Matcha has also become part of its popularity as it provides an opportunity to relax and enjoy a traditional Chinese tea experience.
