At Art of Tea, we’re passionate about the unique taste, flavors, and experience of premium quality teas from all over the world – but one of the most distinctive teas we’ve come across is matcha green tea. Matcha, or “powdered tea,” is made using an ancient Japanese ritual and produces a cup of tea with a rich taste and a unique creamy texture. But in addition to the distinctive taste attributes of matcha, it also has a number of unique health benefits.
Why Is Matcha So Healthy?
The reason matcha stands out in its health benefits is that unlike regular brewed tea, drinking matcha involves consuming the entirety of the tea leaf. While brewing regular green tea involves only ingesting the phytonutrients and chemicals that can seep out of the tea leaf into the water, powdered matcha contains every part of the tea leaf – and consuming matcha powdered tea means ingesting every chemical present in the tea leaf.
Because of its unique composition, matcha boasts more antioxidants than almost any other food or drink. In fact, drinking a single cup of matcha tea provides the same amount of antioxidants as 10 cups of green tea – making it a powerful drink for health effects.
How Matcha Promotes Health
There’s a wide base of research linking matcha to a number of positive health benefits. While these effects have not been conclusively proven, research suggests matcha may confer the following benefits:
- Cancer-Fighting Properties
- Anti-Aging Effects
- Weight Loss
- A Calm Energy Boost without Jitters
- Detoxifies the Body Thanks to Increased Chlorophyll Content
- Boosts Metabolism
