Our Matcha is hand picked and Organic is a top quality beginners grade. It is sourced from Japans southern most islands where it is produced using elaborate techniques handed down from generations of farmers.

Matcha grows best in shade, and one month before harvest the fields are covered to ensure a 90% reduction in sunlight. This encourages the plants to produce Chlorophyll, meaning the leaves are rich in Amino Acids.

It is these amino acids that make Matcha a truly unique ingredient, naturally higher in Antioxidants than any other naturally grown plant.

Tests using ORAC - Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity - showed Matcha is 1573 units per gram compared to 93 units per g in blueberries.

Antioxidants are the bodies natural defence mechanism, they prevent aging and disease and infection caused by damage to cells.

Matcha contains Catechins, in particular a class of Catechin called Epigallocatechin gallate EGCG known to fight cancer cells

In addition Catechins fight free radicals (an atom or group of atoms that react with cells and cause damage) associated with UV rays and Pollution
