Matcha is famously known for being part of ancient Japanese tea ceremonies, spanning over 900 years. This powdered green tea was first introduced in imperial China, and later in Japan, where Buddhist monks and samurai warriors drank what they called a “health elixir.” They honored matcha tea for its potential to heighten the concentration and enhance the metabolism.
The Japanese turned tea drinking into an art form and this tradition is still practiced today.
The process of creating this nutrition rich tea starts with shading he green tea leaves from the sun for the last few weeks of their growth. This increases the chlorophyll content and creates a gorgeous green color. The leaves are then carefully ground with stone grinding wheels to produce a fine powder.

Matcha is most known for its antioxidant properties, just one for the reasons matcha is so beneficial for the skin. Since your skin is your largest organ, providing it with a healthy dose of antioxidants daily can neutralize the free radical’s effect, protect the body from inflammation and even reduce signs of aging.
Just one bowl of matcha green tea provides over 5 times as many antioxidants as any other food. Because of this, applying matcha directly to the skin can fight against acne, rosacea and other skin conditions. Matcha contains detoxifiers capable of naturally removing heavy metals and chemical toxins from the body.
One bowl of Matcha provides substantial quantities of Vitamins A & C, Protein, Iron, Potassium, and Calcium. The amount of catechins found in Matcha has antibiotic properties which promote overall health. It also can improve cholesterol and increase your metabolism, allowing you to burn more calories a day.
