And what about caffeine?
Matcha has approximately 1/3 the caffeine of coffee, with very high levels of the amino acid, theanine. This perfect balance works to enhance mental alertness and increase energy without the jitters common with coffee consumption. Japanese monks were known to sip matcha tea to help ease their mind for meditation while the subtle caffeine content would create focus.
We offer only 100% pure organic matcha, sourced from the rolling hills of Uji, Japan, the birthplace of Japanese tea.
Matcha is well known for being extremely high in antioxidants. The best way of putting this into perspective is with the ORAC value of matcha. ORAC is an acronym that stands for oxygen radical absorbance capacity. This test determines how readily available the antioxidants in a food or drink are and how effective those antioxidants are in the body. Matcha has one of the highest ORAC values of natural food products that we know of. Matcha Matcha's ORAC value on a per gram basis is 1384. The chart above compares the ORAC value of matcha with other common "superfoods".
