Benefits of Matcha

Matcha, being a finely ground green tea leaf known as Tencha, has a concentrated amount of the properties present in a standard cup of green tea. Notably, it has 137 times the amount of teas most prominent and beneficial polyphenol antioxidant, EGCG. In fact, one cup of Matcha contains 3 times the amount of EGCG than a normal green leaf tea (1.)

Consuming Matcha leads to much higher intake of green tea phytochemicals compared to regular green tea (5.) When you drink Matcha you consume the actual tea leaves because the tea leaves are ground, accounting for the concetrate effect. This means you not only get the steeped effects, but the solid form too. The manner of growing the tea, in the shade, changes the chemical composition, which can also be attributed for its higher content of beneficial substances.
