Matcha is a specially grown and processed green tea. The whole tea leaf is consumed providing an arsenal of nutrients, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids making it one of the healthiest beverages on earth. To match the potency in a single serving of Matcha, you would need to drink at least 10 cups of green tea. Its unique in that it provides L-Theanine, an amino acid which promotes a relaxed yet productive alertness and mood enhancement. L-Theanine works synergistically with the caffeine in Matcha to provide clarity and concentration without the jitters. Matcha provides sustained energy for up to 4 hours without the crash you feel with coffee. Also unlike coffee, the caffeine is alkalizing rather than acidic. Matcha has been renowned in Zen Buddhist culture for centuries due to its mood and concentration enhancing effects. It also has 6 times more amino acids than common black and green teas and is loaded with chlorophyll, a major detoxifier.
