Super Green Tea
Our Super Green Tea is all natural premium Japanese green tea called Matcha. Matcha is special shade grown green tea which has been carefully ground down to form a fine powder. Matcha supercharges metabolism, improves focus, boosts energy, detoxifies the body, is extremely high in antioxidants, amino acids & other nutrients.
Matcha is essentially a very concentrated form of green tea. The way it's grown and consumed means that it's packed full of essential vitamins and minerals. Matcha tea bushes are grown under shade which dramatically increases the chlorophyll and amino acid content of the leaf – lots of good stuff.
When you drink regular green tea, you throw away the leaves afterwards which a bit like boiling spinach, throwing away the spinach and just drinking the water – you’ll get some of the nutrients, but you’re throwing away the best bit. Matcha is drunk as a fine powder diffused in liquid so you actually ingest the whole leaf, consuming every little bit of lovely green tea good stuff. That's why we call it super green tea!
Supercharges metabolism & aids weight loss
Matcha contains high levels of EGCG which increases thermogenesis, increases fat oxidation & supercharges the body’s metabolism.
Detoxifies the body
Matcha is shade grown, producing extremely high levels of chlorophyll. Among its many touted benefits, chlorophyll helps the body to: Absorb and expel heavy metals, De-acidify the body & restores its natural pH balance & cleans & purify the blood.
Contains 5 times more L-theanine, an amino acid which helps with neurological activities, than standard green tea.
A 2004 study in the Journal Of Agriculture & Food Chemistry on 'Gram-per-Gram Antioxidant Level Comparison' of antioxidant rich fruits & vegetables as well as other leading super-foods detailed Matcha antioxidant levels over 5x goji berries, 25x Acai Berries & an incredible 53x Spinach.
Great source of antioxidants & essential source of vitamins
Matcha contains high antioxidants compared to all known natural fruits & vegetables.
Matcha contains two special amino acids called theophylline and L-theanine. Like all green tea, Matcha naturally contains caffeine but, unlike coffee, it works together with these two important amino acids to give you a sustained energy boost which can last 6 hours.
Matcha has more antioxidants per gram than any other superfood

For more than 800 years, Zen Buddhist monks have used Matcha green tea as a meditational drink. Unlike regular green tea bags, Matcha allows for consumption of the entire tea leaf, which provides natural energy, supports the body and delivers health benefits greater than anything else on the market. Matcha green tea is also the distinct leader compared to other antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables.
How is Matcha produced?
Only a few dozen tea farmers in all of Japan have the rare and exclusive knowledge required to produce pure, high-quality Matcha green tea. Tea leaves for Matcha grow slowly in shaded tea plantations. The fresh leaves are handpicked, dried and ground by low-friction granite stone mills into an ultra-fine, jade green powder. The powder is then whipped, typically with a bamboo whisk, producing a creamy, velvet, full-bodied, premium green tea.
Where does Matcha come from?
Matcha is cultivated in Shimoyama, located near Nishio City. Shimoyama represents outstanding organic quality with the region located 600m above sea level providing a cool climate. The lower temperature is a natural barrier and protects the organic tea fields as only few insects survive in the colder regions of Japan. This is very important since organic production does not use any pesticides and relies on natural fertilizers only. The organic fields are located in the valleys of the mountains away from civilization. The farmers in this region are considered among the best in Japan for organic cultivation.
