Why should I drink matcha?

L-theanine, a compound unique to tea, is energising, but also calming. Found in abundance in matcha, the zen of teas.

Matcha is packed with 15x more antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and alkalising chlorophyll than green tea, keeping you healthy.

Unlike coffee, there is no crash – just sustained energy which lifts you throughout the day. Matcha is a great coffee alternative.

All this sounds great, but what is matcha?
Matcha is tea, but not just any old tea!
Matcha is made from the highest-grade tea leaves, stone ground to a fine powder. True matcha is only grown in Japan, the best stuff is produced in Kagoshima in the south of Kyushu island, and that’s where we source Living Matcha.
All tea comes from the same plant, camelia sinensis, but matcha is different. For two weeks prior to picking, matcha is grown under shade. This shade-growing process causes the tea plant to produce extra chlorophyll (so it can absorb as much sunlight as possible). Shade growing not only gives matcha its vital green colour, but also supercharges the leaves with nutrients.
So, matcha is super healthy. Moreover, when you drink it, because it’s a powder (rather than an infusion), you ingest all these nutrients. Small wonder health enthusiasts are obsessed. With the sustained, no-crash boost of energy you get from a cup, Living Matcha is an excellent coffee replacement.
