Matcha is a special form of powdered green tea that comes from the same plant as regular, whole leaf green tea. The difference between matcha and green tea lies in the unusual cultivation and processing methods, making it the king of greens.
Matcha’s recent rise in popularity in the West is in part due to a better understanding of its incredible health benefits. Recent research has shown that one cup of matcha has 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. It is also being used as an alternative to coffee.

I’m a tea drinker, from childhood. I haven’t seen Pukka here but I’ll keep my eyes open for this brand. There are so many brands these days that it’s hard to keep up. But I always have London Fruit & Herb teas at home and at the office, and PG Tips is a staple at home. I also have a brand from India and another from Tahiti (souvenirs from officemates). I live in tea country – we have free oolong, mugi and green tea at the office, and Japanese restaurants serve free kocha or hojicha. I don’t think I’ve met a tea I didn’t like (except for sweet/sugared tea but that’s not the tea’s fault).
Tastes pretty good, not overpowering flavor but enough flavor to be satisfying. I received the mint matcha green tea which has a good balance of flavors.
I am not a tea lover, gave it a short and I wont complaint about it, for the health benefits it renders I can drink it. I was wondering if they can put the antioxidant capacity of the green tea. I heard it is described in terms of the amount of catachins it contains.
Absolutely love this tea! It's organic and is packed with herbs that boost up my health. It gives me that boost of needed energy in the morning!
