Matcha has some of the strongest and most convenient health benefits of all tea. Matcha doesn't need to steep since it's ground up whole tea leaves. The word “Matcha” is a transliteration from the Japanese word mat-cha (抹茶). Mat (抹) means “to grind” and cha (茶) means “tea.” That means, when you dissolve matcha into water, you're getting the benefits of the entire tea leaf!
Like all green teas, matcha is full of rich health benefits: antioxidants, caffeine, amino acids, vitamin c, potassium, fiber, beta-carotene, and stress relieving properties too.
