Matcha tea: what it is for and benefits

Matcha Tea: what it is for and benefits

History of matcha tea

In Japanese, "cha" means tea, and "ma" means powder , so the word matcha literally translates to tea powder. It is believed that the first tea seeds were brought to Japan from China by the Zen monk Eisai. The tea ceremony celebrates the profound beauty of simple things, the extraordinary in the ordinary, and aims to bring all participants to the here and now.

Drinking matcha tea as the focal point of the tea ceremony was a perfect choice, as matcha stimulates presence of mind, alertness, and a state of calm and meditation at the same time.

These profound physiological benefits of matcha intuited by the sages of Japan are now proven by modern science, while more and more groundbreaking studies are being published on the health benefits of green tea.

Matcha tea is the youngest leaf of green tea ( Camellia sinensis) which is protected from the sun and then turned into dust. Matcha tea serves to increase metabolism, promoting weight loss, reduce stress, improve mood and memory, care for liver health, prevent premature aging and reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases.

These benefits are due to the fact that matcha tea contains large amounts of theanine, chlorophyll and caffeine, providing powerful antioxidant, thermogenic, stimulant, cardioprotective and hepatoprotective properties.
