Matcha is known as the “Champagne” of tea, unlike regular green tea, the leaves are not steeped in hot water. Instead the leaves are finely ground into a vibrant green powder which, when mixed with hot water, forms an incredibly potent green tea that has 137 times the antioxidant content of standard green tea!

Zen Green Tea sources the finest Matcha from Japanese tea farms to bring to you a Matcha that is bursting with flavour, packed with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals and contains only the best green tea leaves in the world.

Matcha Green Tea has been used for centuries by Zen monks and is known in Buddism for its ability to enhance concentration and boost the metabolism. It is referred to among monks as the “elixir” of good health.

Matcha Green Tea is better than standard Green Tea because the tea leaves are grown slowly in shaded tea plantations. The process of shading- unique to only Matcha Green Tea- promotes the plants to produce extremely high levels of chlorophyll within the leaves. The fresh leaves are then hand picked and only briefly steamed to preserve their nutritional properties and taste. The leaves are then rapidly milled by granite stone mills into an ultra fine, jade green powder. A small amount of powder (2 grams) can then be added to hot water and finally whisked with a bamboo whisk or stirred with a teaspoon to form a stunning Green Tea.

With Matcha you are consuming the whole tea leaf dissolved in water. As a result Matcha is a powerhouse of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. The result is a uniquely creamy, full-bodied and beautiful cup of Green Tea.

Does Zen Green Tea’s Matcha contain caffeine?
Yes, Matcha contains approximately ¾ the amount of caffeine as a standard cup of coffee. There is a vital difference however in the way Matcha delivers this caffeine in comparison to coffee. With Matcha the caffeine is absorbed and released slowly by the body over a period of 6-8 hours. This means that Matcha provides a sustainable energy boost and does not deliver the rapid 30 minute spike, slump and “jitters” associated with coffee. Additionally the L-theanine amino acid in Matcha is known for its ability to increase alpha waves in the brain and promote calmness and concentration giving Matcha users a great “Zen” state.

Where do you source your Matcha from?
Zen sources its Matcha from small, sustainable family run tea farms in the very South of Japan. Regions that our Matcha come from include: Kagoshima, Kyoto and Saga.

How is Zen Green Tea’s Matcha different from standard green tea bags?
When you consume Zen Green Tea’s Matcha you are drinking the whole tea leaf dissolved in water not just the steeped water from the leaves. As a result you are consuming a green tea which is more than 10 times stronger than a regular brewed tea bag. Matcha has gained a reputation in Asian culture to be the “Champagne” of tea due to only the finest leaves being selected and processed into a beautiful young green powder.
