High Quality Japanese Matcha Green Tea Powder. What is it?

Out of all the forms of green tea, Matcha is the most traditional form but also, recently, one of the most popular!

Matcha is a green tea powder. Vibrant green in colour and finely powdered, it is made from high quality dried green tea leaves. Stronger in concentration and healthier than regular green loose leaf teas, Matcha is sometimes referred to as a green tea extract.

Found in all sorts of foods, especially healthy ones, and also a popular flavour in drinks such as matcha lattes.

With Matcha, a cup of tea contains all sorts of health benefits including promoting weight loss which you can find detailed below.

The History of Matcha

Originally used at Chinese Buddhist Chan (Zen) monasteries, and then later brought to Japan by traveling Zen monks, the Matcha form of powdered green tea was highly valued by the Zen Buddhists for its energising properties and health benefits.

From about the 12th century onwards, Matcha became popular across Japan, at first in Buddhist monasteries and then by the Japanese elite, and spreading further into the community.

Over time, elaborate Japanese tea ceremonies evolved, involving a range of matcha tools including a bamboo whisk and ceramic matcha bowls (all of which you can buy from us on this page - see our range of Matcha products above!)

Matcha Today

These days Japanese, Matcha green tea powder has seen a huge surge in popularity world-wide, enjoyed as a flavour in deserts, and especially popular with both health fanatics as well as existing tea lovers.

It is also a very fashionable ingredient in smoothies, cookies, ice-cream and other sweets, and of course there's the well-known "matcha latte" or "green tea latte" or as we call it here at LUPICIA, Matcha Au Lait, a sweet and milky matcha-laden hot beverage.

Matcha Tea Bags

Due to its fine powder consistency, Matcha is not normally found in tea bags. Here at LUPICIA however we have blended Matcha with a lovely Kirara Rice Green Tea to create Matcha Kirara Matcha/Green Tea Bags

Health Benefits

As with green tea in general, there are many beneficial health and wellbeing effects associated with Matcha. Since Matcha is essentially a concentrated form of green tea, one can appreciate extra health value compared to regular green tea.

Organic Matcha

Organic matcha is especially healthy and here at LUPICIA we offer some very high grade single origin, plantation-specified, organically grown Japanase matcha green teas such as Matcha Uji Tawara and Matcha "Nishio" (both of which you can find above on this page)

Caffeine Content

Whilst Matcha, being more a more concentrated form of Japanese Green Tea, has more caffeine, it still has overall a lower caffeine content than coffee.
