Origins And Benefits Of Matcha Tea

  • Matcha Tea has long been associated with ancient Zen tea-drinking ceremonies performed by monks.
  • It is part of the Zen mindfulness meditation, where the entire process of preparing and drinking tea is a complete meditation.
  • The fine green tea offers minerals, vitamins, polyphenols (a form of antioxidants) and other nutrients that regulate blood sugar and protect against heart disease and cancer.
  • Drinking matcha tea using the ‘slow down’ technique of Zen monks has added benefits: lower inflammation, lower blood pressure, and reduced stress hormones.

The strong, umami taste of Matcha tea is like a mixture of grass and spinach and may need to be sweetened to taste, though milk is not recommended.
