Debra’s Wellness Tips

Regular readers of Debra’s Tips for Well-being are aware of the health benefits of green tea, such as Green Tea, published April 27, 2014. A new kind of health-producing green tea is showing up under the name “Matcha,” a long-standing tradition of Japanese culture. Matcha Green Tea is the highest quality powdered green tea available.

Made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants, Matcha Green Tea is steamed, stemmed, and de-vined before being stone-ground into very fine powder. Matcha Green Tea powder is then stored away from light and oxygen in order to preserve its brilliant green color and antioxidant properties. This miracle elixir has been consumed for over a millennium in the Far East, and is now considered to be one of the most powerful super foods on the market today.
