Health Benefits of Matcha Green Tea

We are just wild about organic Matcha Green Tea and its antioxidant zestful, super nutrition properties. Along with drinking three cups of day, we love to add this health-giving green tea to cakes, pancakes, smoothies and now sparkling cocktails! Let’s celebrate the arrival of Spring with a delightfully zingy Matcha Green Tea cocktail with organic licorice, white rum and organic or biodynamic Prosecco with an uplifting, zingy recipe from Pukka, the organic tea wizards. We don’t know how you do it, but you have managed to elevate herbal tea into a drink fit for the most discerning disciples of food as medicine. Cheers!

What is Matcha Green Tea and What Makes it So Special?

Matcha is a special type of powdered green tea. It’s recent rise in popularity in the west is largely due to a better understanding of its scientifically- proven health benefits.

The matcha leaf stem and veins are removed before being powdered into the finest verdant grains that dissolve easily in water.

Antioxidant Super Powers

Recent research has shown that one cup of matcha has around 100 times the antioxidants compared to green tea (and green has about double the levels found in black tea).

Matcha also contains various compounds that are associated with improving health, reducing stress and increasing alertness. It’s the perfect brew for our over-stimulated busy world.
