All matcha is green tea, but not all green tea is matcha. Matcha is a super-charged green tea! Instead of being traditionally steeped in a bag, matcha is made from whole tea leaves that are specially grown, dried and ground into a super fine, pure green tea powder. When you drink matcha, you’re consuming whole tea leaves and with it, loads of benefits that will keep you energized and prepared for your day, goals and wildest dreams.
Our green tea plants are covered with mesh shade screens to keep sunlight out and boost chlorophyll production levels, which gives our matcha its beautiful emerald green color. Chlorophyll happens to be a superfood full of antioxidants, which helps detoxify the body by removing free radicals (unstable atoms that cause cell damage, illness and aging), keeping your body cells healthy so you can continue to challenge yourself and break boundaries.
Matcha is packed with high levels of L-Theanine, which cancels out negative effects of caffeine (such as the jitters & crash) by helping the body gradually absorb caffeine over a period of 4 to 6 hours rather than all at once. Junbi matcha is a perfectly balanced source of mental clarity and calm, efficient energy to help you prepare daringly to push your limits.
EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate), a main antioxidant found in matcha, has been shown to boost metabolism, fight inflammation in the body, help maintain healthy arteries and even promote cell repair! No wonder just a sip of Junbi matcha will have you feeling so bold and determined to take that leap of faith!
