There is a lot more to OMGTEA's Organic Matcha than just the lovely mild green tea taste and its vibrant emerald green colour.
It also has astonishing health and healing properties and we feel privileged to be one of the select few in the UK that import Japanese Matcha as we understand its true value.
One of the reasons the health benefits of Matcha exceed those of other premium green teas is because you consume the whole leaf and not just the brewed water. One serving of Matcha is the equivalent of 10 servings of green tea in terms of its nutritional value and antioxidant content.
Matcha green tea has a much higher concentration of antioxidants than orange juice or blueberries, two fruit sources which are recognised for having an abundance of antioxidants.
Matcha has antiviral and antibiotic properties which are said to help to prevent cold and flu viruses whilst also aiding digestion by killing harmful bacteriaMatcha is Very High in Antioxidants
Antioxidants are the amazing nutrients and enzymes that are essential for fighting life threatening diseases; the negative effects of UV radiation which in turn gives us younger-looking skin and all other age related decline. They are something that the health-conscious seek from foods such as raw fruits, green veggies, not forgetting dark chocolate. ORAC measures the potency of antioxidants found in food and beverages. Matcha offers a stunning high level of ORAC units: With 1573 units it surpasses all natural antioxidant rich food known so far.
Eisai - the monk who brought tea to Japan said that it was"the elixir of the immortals. Wherever tea seeds are planted, long life is sure to follow"
