Green gold: The incredible benefits of matcha

Written by Sebastian Pole

Matcha is a unique form of bright emerald green tea. Here we discuss its amazing health benefits and tradition of use.

Matcha is green gold. It is made from a special type of powdered green tea that is grown under shade for a few weeks before being harvested. The stem and veins are then removed before being powdered into the finest verdant grains that dissolve easily in water. Matcha is the tea used in the ancient Japanese tea ceremony and has been used by Buddhist monks for the last 1,000 years. Its light and ascendant properties take ones awareness and energy upwards through the heart to the head bringing clarity and insight. It’s this almost spiritual quality that makes Matcha such an appropriate drink for today’s busy world.
