Beginners Guide to Organic Matcha in 5 Basic Facts


What exactly is matcha? That's an excellent starting point. Before we go any further, let's start by explaining matcha. Fact #1- Organic matcha comes from very finely ground Japanese green tea consisting of whole tea leaves that are covered before picking to accentuate the deep green color. The tea leaves are then ground by stone into a dusty powder after being picked and before being carefully packaged. 
#2 Matcha tea is widely enjoyed in Asia, as well as in the Western Hemisphere. Tea drinkers prefer to drink steamy cups of Matcha because of an inclination toward the increased nutitional content from the unmistakably "green" chlorophyll flavor of the tea leaf which some find to be comparable to grass or spinach, in addition to the reported health benefits. 

#3 The wellness benefits of regular consumption of organic matcha which is antibacterial in nature and high in vitamins, minerals and antioxidants also includes the strengthening your body's immune system, lowering of blood pressure and cholesterol, aids in digestion, speeds up metabolism and is considered to provide anti-aging effect among other calming and detoxification perks.

#4 There are a wide variety of recipes and recommendations for use of matcha ranging from the highly traditional cup of steeped tea to those trendy frothy lattes and even as a baking ingredient. I chose to steep my tea. 


 I added approximately a teaspoon of matcha green tea powder into a cup with a third of a cup of hot not boiling water. Then proceeding to stir the tea powder moderately with a bamboo whisk or spoon to mix the tea. Sediments of the powder will remain in a foam or froth which is to be expected of matchas and safe to drink if desired. 

#5 USDA Certified Organic Matcha is very pure and natural with no fertilizers, pesticides, chemicals or other toxins. While traditional green tea matcha is certainly an acquired taste, the reported health benefits to tea drinkers is appealing to a growing population.

Unfortunately, sometimes simply choosing an organic matcha is not enough. Many farms are still exposed to industrial pollution because of their geographic location. Polluted rain water, toxic runoff in the soil, and noxious gasses from nearby plants are just a few of the ways that an organic tea farm could still be exposed to unsafe levels of toxins. The only way to ensure that you’re getting the safest product available is to choose a vendor who has lab-tested their leaves.
