About Matcha Tea - Matcha is derived from shade grown tea leaves and stone ground into an ultra fine, green powder. The brilliant flavor of matcha is attributed to sweetness from naturally occurring sugars, savor from the amino acid L-theanine, and bitterness due to the antioxidant catechin. Health Benefits:
Naturally occurring antioxidants, polyphenols, EGCG, and L-theanine in matcha boost the immune system. (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23072320) Naturally occurring antioxidants assist in reducing levels of triglycerides, cholesterol, and hepatic glucose content in diabetic individuals (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/14518774) Naturally occurring L-theanine enhances alpha brain-wave activity, developing a calmer and more alert mind-state.

Japan Sencha Green Tea

Sencha is the most common and popular variety of green tea in Japan. The fresh leaves are steamed immediately after harvest without any withering. This preserves the tea’s fresh, vivacious green quality and bright, chlorophyllrich color. Since it is not shade grown, Sencha has a bright green-gold color and is not as sweet as Gyokuro. The flavor is also more assertive (usually described as brisk, or astringent), with a bright, grassy aroma.
