Matcha tea leaves grow in the shade to increase chlorophyll content. The leaves are then hand-picked, dried and ground into a fine green powder. The entire leaf is ingested with all of their antioxidant powers (6 times the antioxidants of goji berries, 7 times that of dark chocolate, 17 times that of blueberries, and 60 times that of spinach). This wonder powder has been credited with having preventative cancer, anti-aging, and heart disease properties, as well as being a helpful weight loss aid, detoxifier, mind enhancer, and energy booster.
Suggested Use: Boil water, let water sit for 5 minutes before adding ½ tsp of powder. Enjoy the miraculous benefits the Zen Buddhists have enjoyed for centuries. You an also add 1 tsp per day to juice, smoothies, yogurt or cereal.
