In Tang Dynasty China (618–907), tea leaves were steamed and formed into tea bricks for storage and trade. The tea was prepared by roasting and pulverizing the tea, and decocting the resulting tea powder in hot water, then adding salt. In the Song Dynasty (960–1279), the method of making powdered tea from steam-prepared dried tea leaves, and preparing the beverage by whipping the tea powder and hot water together in a bowl became popular. Preparation and consumption of powdered tea was formed into a ritual by Chan or Zen Buddhists. The earliest extant Chan monastic code, entitled Chanyuan Qinggui (Rules of Purity for the Chan Monastery, 1103), describes in detail the etiquette for tea ceremonies.

Zen Buddhism and the Chinese methods of preparing powdered tea were brought to Japan in 1191 by the monk Eisai. Although powdered tea has not been popular in China for some time, now there is a global resurgence in Matcha tea consumption, including in China. In Japan it continued to be an important item at Zen monasteries, and became highly appreciated by others in the upper echelons of society during the fourteenth through sixteenth centuries.  More details see here.

Polyphenols: Your Key to Better Health

Fresh tea leaf comes unusually rich in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols which may constitute up to 30% of the dry leaf weight. So, when you drink a cup of tea, you're basically drinking a solution of tea polyphenols. In fresh, unfermented tea leaves, polyphenols exist as a series of chemicals called catechins.


Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) happens to be the most powerful catechin found in tea. In fact, one study indicates that EGCG is 25-100 times more potent than antioxidant vitamins C and E. This study also reported that just one cup of green tea has antioxidant effects greater than a serving of broccoli, spinach, carrots, or strawberries.


With Certified Organic matcha green tea, you could receive over 100 times the EGCG provided from regular brewed green tea!


With such extremely high antioxidant activity, it's logical to conclude that Matcha green tea may be highly beneficial in protecting your body from health concerns posed by free radicals. Free radicals are highly reactive molecules and fragments of molecules that may impact your body at the cellular level.


That's why antioxidants provide support for your hardworking immune and cardiovascular systems. Widely acclaimed for overall health-promotion, catechins (EGCG) have been studied for the last few decades for their potential ability to:


  • Support your immune system
  • Fight the signs of normal aging
  • Support your healthy digestion 
  • Promote healthy function of your brain and liver
  • Help promote your healthy gums
