Suggested Use

Add 2.5g (half a teaspoon) of Matcha Tea powder to your cup, then add between 30ml and 120ml of hot water (not boiling) and whisk. If you have not taken matcha tea before we recommend starting with 75ml of hot water, then adjusting the amount for future cups to find your own preference. Note that our matcha powder can also be taken with cold water or added to fruit juices, smoothies or yoghurts.

Premium Grade Matcha Tea Nutrition and Benefits

Matcha tea is taken from the same plant (Camellia Sinensis) as green tea, but is grown using traditional Japanese growing methods to give its unique taste and nutrient profile.

Matcha growers cover their plants for several weeks before harvesting their leaves. Devoid of direct sunlight the plants boost their chlorophyll production giving the leaves a vibrant green colour. Covering the leaves also boosts the amino acid content. Using the whole leaf gives a higher caffeine and antioxidant content than steeping the leaves of normal green teas.

After harvesting, the leaves are dried, the stems and veins removed, and the leaves ground very slowly into a delicate fine powder. Golden Greens Organic Matcha Tea is then packed into foil-lined and re-sealable packets to maintain freshness.

Matcha tea contains high levels of antioxidants, far higher than the steeping of normal green teas. Antioxidants found in matcha tea, such as catechins, are highly protective, reducing cell damage caused by oxidation.

Studies have also pointed to further health benefits such as liver protection and boosting brain function (attention, reaction time, and memory).

The high levels of the amino acid L-Theanine in matcha green tea helps promote non-drowsy relaxation. L-theanine also changes the way people react to caffeine, still promoting alertness but crucially helping to avoid the typical crash in energy levels that follow.

Green tea is often listed in the ingredients of supplements for heart health and weight loss.

It is important for your matcha tea to be certified organic as this assures your tea contains no traces of pesticides or other harmful chemicals.

Ceremonial Grade Matcha Tea - A Cautionary Note

The only grade above premium grade matcha tea is ceremonial grade. Genuine ceremonial grade matcha tea typically costs two to three times the price of premium grade, which is itself more expensive than the lower grades of matcha tea. For the vast majority of people, the difference in taste between premium grade and ceremonial grade matcha tea would be negligible. This is why we sell premium grade rather than ceremonial grade.

Nevertheless, some unscrupulous retailers will label their low grade green tea as ceremonial grade matcha tea to boost sales to the unwary. Many sellers on popular selling platforms will not even know the difference between the grades, but will simply copy the keywords from the listings of the best selling matcha teas. If the price is too good to be true, the bargain you think you are getting will almost certainly turn out to be cheap low-grade green tea.
