 All about Matcha

A super antioxidant

Those who like tea know that this drink is wonderful to calm the spirit, leaving us in a warning, but without anxiety, while bringing comfort, facilitates digestion and helps eliminate toxins.

Like black tea, oolong tea, white tea, and other green teas, the Matcha It comes from the leaves of Camellia Sinensis, which grow in Asia. The difference is in processing: while leaves of other types of tea are oxidized, in the matcha leaves are slightly steamed before they are dried, keeping natural antioxidants in an even purer state.
