Matcha is a tea drink that has swept the United States in popularity over the past several years. This rich source of antioxidants has been known to promote weight loss and reduce inflammation; making this tea a staple in a lot of households. However, most people have yet to discover the deep-rooted origins of this tea that makes it so unique.
Matcha Is More Than Just A Powder…
Matcha is actually a unique way of consuming green tea!
Most people are familiar with its powdered form, but what they have failed to recognize is that matcha powder is derived from the raw, loose leaf green tea called Tencha.
The best tea distributors are the ones who grade Tencha in a manner that resembles the excellence of the ancient Japanese tea drinking ceremonies. When there is a lot of intentionality and high standards that go into grading loose Tencha leaves, the quality of the matcha powder that comes from it will be far greater.
This practice is what separates the specialty tea distributors from the generic brands that are found in most grocery stores within the U.S.
We are teaching tea lovers and aficionados all across the country how to grind and grade their own matcha powder from Tencha leaves! Our Tea Wellness Retreat is an elevated, immersive experience that combines the best of tea culture, wellness, and art. At this retreat, we will be unlocking the secrets of matcha that will help you have the most authentic, ceremony-grade experience every time you make the tea at home.
Boost Your Energy While Remaining At Ease
Matcha is rich in caffeine levels, but has another ingredient that prevents the jitters and crashes that come with coffee consumption.
L-Theanine is an amino acid found in teas such as matcha that promotes relaxation and reduces stress. This component of matcha allows the caffeine to disperse in the bloodstream over time instead of hitting the body with an abrupt wave of energy that crashes quickly. This is what makes matcha a more sustainable option for an energy source.
