Having the perfect balance of natural umami sweetness, slow-released caffeine (derived from the amino acid L-theanine), and slight matcha astringency (derived from natural tea Catechins), this is the perfect Usu-cha (thin style matcha) for daily sipping.
This "super tea," is grown and produced in Nishio city in Aichi prefecture. Nishio has been known around the world as the cradle of the finest matcha for more than 800 years.

Matcha has some of the strongest and most convenient health benefits of all tea.
Matcha doesn't need to steep since it's ground up whole tea leaves. The word “Matcha” is a transliteration from the Japanese word mat-cha (抹茶). Mat (抹) means “to grind” and cha (茶) means “tea.” That means, when you dissolve matcha into water, you're getting the benefits of the entire tea leaf! Like all green teas, matcha is full of rich health benefits: antioxidants, caffeine, amino acids, vitamin c, potassium, fiber, beta-carotene, and stress relieving properties too. What makes matcha so unique is that it's a concentrated form of all the feel good stuff you would get from any other tea. It's like drinking ten cups of green tea at once! Plus, without getting too science-y, it's full of L-theanine, which helps eliminate any kind of crash you would get from consuming all of the intense caffeine matcha produces! That's why matcha is commonly referred to as a, "super-tea!" Not to mention, it's calming, mediative, and beautiful to make! What more could you want in a tea?!
