What is matcha?

Matcha is the finely ground powder of green tea leaves that have been shaded and hand picked. The powder is a vibrant green colour and dissolves in water. Matcha can be used in hot and cold drinks, baked goods, desserts, snacks and even face masks. Zen Green Tea is a premium, organic matcha from Kyoto in Japan from sustainable tea farms.

What are the health benefits of matcha?

Matcha green tea powder has 137 times the antioxidants of standard green tea and is thought to:

  • Boost metabolism to aid in weight loss
