Table of contents
Matcha Green Tea Powder by EssentialSeries is a powdered food made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, dried and pulverised to produce a finely sieved matcha tea.
Matcha tea is a tea grown in various regions of Japan, a young tea, harvested approximately three weeks after germination and grown in low light conditions.
This product contains only high-quality matcha green tea leaves, with no additives, making it 100% suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Green tea and matcha green tea are obtained from the same plant: Camellia sinensis, so the beneficial properties of green tea, such as its content of catechins and other polyphenols, are shared by matcha tea.
Unlike standard green tea, matcha tea is grown in controlled environmental conditions, away from exposure to sunlight that 'ripens' its leaves and decreases its amino acid content.
This cultivation method allows matcha tea to have a more intense umami taste than green tea, as its content of amino acids such as L-theanine and L-arginine is higher than in sun-harvested green tea leaves; as a result, its taste is sweeter and it is usually consumed without the need for sweetening.
Polyphenols are compounds naturally present in plants to which specific characteristics have been attributed.
The main polyphenols in green tea are the catechins it contains.
Our matcha green tea is grown, harvested and processed using techniques and controlling factors that determine the quality of the product at every stage of the process, resulting in a tea leaf powder of the highest quality.
Reflected in their polyphenol content, organic compounds that are very sensitive to degradation by heat, acidic environments, exposure to light and other factors.
Ensuring 15% of the product's polyphenol content is a sign of good control and traceability of the raw material used for the production of matcha green tea.
It goes great with products such as:
- Ashwagandha (10:1) extracto.
- Kale powder.
- Vitamin C 1000mg + Bioflavonoids + Rose Hip.
