What's the Matcha? A Beginner's Guide to Matcha Tea

Matcha tea has become a favourite among health specialists, and when you look into it, it’s easy to see why.

Last year we launched Bootea Matcha tea in three flavours; original, blueberry and cinnamon and peppermint and we’ve received great reviews.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ “This tea is excellent. The texture is perfect. I highly recommend it, you get great health benefits without all the sugar from Starbucks.”

What is Matcha tea?

According to 8th Century Japanese Zen priests, Matcha is: “the ultimate mental and medical remedy and has the ability to make one’s life more full and complete”

Matcha Tea is a Japanese premium green tea powder, stone-ground and used in traditional Japanese tea ceremonies renowned for numerous health benefits. With Matcha you consume the entire tea leaf in powder form, meaning it is the purest form of green tea, giving you all of the health benefits of normal green tea and then some. 

Why is Matcha tea better than loose leaf tea?

When using loose leaf tea, valuable antioxidants and minerals are thrown away as the whole leaf is not being consumed. Whether this is left in a sieve or in a teabag, parts of the leaf, which have great benefits are left aside when you consume your tea. Matcha tea grinds the whole tea leaf, providing a powerful brew of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and amino acids in a way no other green tea can.

Key ingredients

Matcha contains small amounts of various vitamins and minerals, but is most prized for being rich in polyphenol compounds called catechins, a type of antioxidant. Because Matcha is made from ground whole tea leaves, it’s a more potent source of catechins than standard green tea.

Polyphenols and catechins are a natural chemical and compound found in green tea leaves that have antioxidant properties that boost the metabolism among many other great benefits.

Available in original, peppermint or blueberry and cinnamon flavours, our Matcha tea is the perfect way to start your day in a more energised and supercharged way than regular tea offers.

Each pot of joy provides 30 servings (measuring spoon included) and we highly recommend it as a tea, or to boost the flavour and nutrient profile of your shakes or smoothies.
