Common Matcha Questions!
1. WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREEN TEA AND MATCHA
It is no surprise to know that both matcha and green tea are derived from the same plant Camellia Sinensis. Green Tea and Matcha both have different flavor profiles, aromas and different preparation methods.
What makes them different is the processing technique used to create both. Green Tea is grown in sunlight and matcha is shade-grown during the final weeks of harvest. The shade increases chlorophyll pigment levels in the tea leaves and turns them a vibrant green color.
2. WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF MATCHA?
One cup of matcha tea has 10 times more antioxidants than regular brewed green tea.
Energy boost - Matcha delivers caffeine slowly to your body with a slower release than coffee.
Weight-loss - Matcha is proven to increase metabolism, it helps the body burn calories up to 4 times faster than average without drinking.
3. DOES A HIGHER GRADE OF MATCHA OFFER MORE HEALTH BENEFITS THAN A LOWER GRADE OF MATCHA?
Matcha Grades refer to color, aroma and taste.
4. WHEN PREPARING A MATCHA, HOW MUCH IS THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF MATCHA TO USE?
