There is no matcha when it comes to this green tea! We are now stocking this Japanese superelixir at our Kingly Street deli, try it as a smoothie booster or as a delicious matcha latte and enjoy it's wonderous health benefits...

Antioxidant Power

Matcha is unrivalled in terms of its antioxidant content; even blueberries and spinach can’t compete. When we drink matcha tea, we are actually consuming the leaf itself, not just brewed water. And although matcha’s leaf might be green to the eye, it’s pure gold for the body because it is so nutrient-dense; so much so, that it would take 10 glasses of normal brewed green tea to reap the benefits that just 1 glass of matcha provides. And what’s more, matcha tea contains some of the most powerful antioxidants out there. It is full of EGCg, which is cancer fighting.

Brain Power and Energy

For years, Japanese monks have used Matcha to help them meditate and it’s about time that we take a leaf out of their book. Matcha contains an impressive amount of L-Theanine, which is an amino acid that induces a state of relaxed alertness, increases our concentration and improves our mood. But that’s not all, you might put down your coffee cup as you read this because L-Theanine works with the caffeine in Matcha to also provide us with a lasting energy boost.

Fat Burner and Detoxifier

When it comes to being lean and clean, it certainly helps to go green. Matcha has been found to speed up our metabolism and burn fat without elevating our blood pressure or heart rate. What’s more is that matcha is an incredible detoxifier. It is loaded with chlorophyll, which cleanses the body and rids it of toxins and heavy metals.
