Increase Focus, Enhance energy levels and Boost your metabolism with: Kenko Matcha Green Tea Australia
What is Matcha Green Tea?
Matcha is a special type of Japanese powdered green tea, produced by artisanal tea growers of Japan. Unlike regular green tea leaves which are 'steeped' in hot water, matcha leaves are ground into a fine powder, then mixed with water to create a super potent green tea, packed with nutrients.
The whole tea leaf is ingested, providing amazing levels of the antioxidant EGCG (many times that of regular green tea!)
Some people drink matcha for the taste, while many more Aussie's are turning to matcha for the incredible health benefits. Kenko Matcha Tea contains 100% pure stone ground tea leaves.

What are the Health Benefits of Matcha?
Increases focus and alertness (without the caffeine jitters you get from coffee)
Boosts metabolism (which can aid in increased fat burning)
Enhances energy levels naturally (with no 'crash' like other stimulants)
Off the charts antioxidant levels (more than any other 'superfood')
Calming yet energising properties (due to the L-Theanine / caffeine combination)
Supports your immune function (from all those antioxidants)
Aids meditation practice (matcha has been used by zen monks for centuries)
Super high levels of EGCG (antioxidants known for their cancer fighting properties)
(When you drink a normal tea that is steeped in water, the tea leaves are discarded, (causing most of the nutrients and antioxidants to be lost). Not so with matcha. When you prepare tea using matcha powder you are ingesting the whole leaf, and consuming all the good stuff. This gives matcha it's impressive antioxidant and nutrient profile and makes it a super tea. )
that's nice... but how does matcha taste?
Kenko Matcha tea has a natural sweetness, slight vegetal or grassy overtones, creamy texture and a hint of astringency. It should never be 'bitter' to taste (this is a sign of poor quality or old matcha). It can be prepared by simply mixing with hot water, made into a delicious green tea latte, or added to matcha smoothies and sweets.
How do I prepare Matcha Green Tea?
In a Japanese tea ceremony, Matcha is prepared using a bamboo whisk called a chasen, a fine metal sift and bamboo scoop called a chasaku. Start by shaking the matcha tea powder through a fine sieve into a bowl then adding water. You will want to use around 1 gram of Matcha Tea powder (1/4 teaspoon) with 75ml of hot water.
