Loaded with Catechin, EGCg

Cleanse & Detox

Matcha comes from the same plant that produces both black and green tea. But it comes down to how the plant is grown and the processes after the tea leaves have been picked. Unlike other teas, to produce Matcha, the leaves grow in the shade in the final month of growth. Shade growing causes a tremendous increase in chlorophyll and L-theanine production in Matcha. The resulting high levels of chlorophyll which aids detox and give this tea its beautiful vibrant green color. 

Energy Levels and Endurance

Matcha contains half the amount of caffine as a espresso, but it works differently to the caffeine from the coffee. Matcha contains distinctive amino acid called -theanine, which is a slow release caffeine and produces calm energy boost as opposed to the caffeine spike rom coffee which gives jitters.

I am in love with the taste of your matcha, it is better than at least 6 different ones I tried. I really believe in the benefits of drinking matcha instead of coffee as I have been doing so for 2 years consistently.

It is so amazing to put this mask on after practicing face yoga. Because of increased circulation the absorption of good stuff from matcha is even better.
