MATCHA ELIXIR OF YOUTH, POTION OF IMMORTALITY, OR GREEN GOLD

Historically, monks, samurai warriors, and Japanese imperial families have enjoyed Matcha as part of their daily routines.

Buddhist monks, for example, have used Matcha for centuries, believing it helps them maintain mental focus, giving them mild, long-lasting energy during long meditation sessions.

Samurai learned the art of making Matcha from Zen Buddhist monks as early as the 13th century. They learned that drinking Matcha could restore them physically and prepare them mentally for battle. Based on their strict code of conduct, they have developed an elaborate framework called wabi that details how to prepare and enjoy Matcha.

Drinking Matcha was a ritual to which everyone came unarmed.

Over the centuries, the development of this philosophy gave birth to the Japanese tea ceremony we know today.

To this day, Matcha in Japan is prepared and enjoyed in the same way, celebrating the samurai.

In addition to its cultural context, Matcha is considered a natural alternative medicine in Japan. Matcha has a very beneficial effect on our physical and mental well-being. Various studies have also shown that the catechin polyphenols in Matcha help protect against cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and have a beneficial effect on cholesterol and blood pressure. Matcha also helps burn fat, increases metabolism and promotes weight loss. In terms of antioxidant levels, matcha contains 137 times the amount of antioxidants found in a cup of regular green tea.

Above all, 100 % is natural, which is a staggering figure for many.

Because of all these amazing facts, Matcha was considered the elixir of immortality in Japan.
