Matcha Tea Powder Benefits
Matcha is loaded with antioxidants, and among the most potent and beneficial is ECG. This super antioxidant is most recognized for its cancer-fighting abilities and for its immune-boosting authority. Matcha’s antioxidant content consists of 60% catechins and boasts 100 times more ECGs than any other tea. In fact, based on the ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) conducted at Tufts University, one bowl of matcha contains 5 times more antioxidants than any other food source known on earth. If that weren’t enough, matcha can also boost one’s metabolism, detox the body, lower bad cholesterol levels, and supply substantial quantities of potassium, Vitamins A and C, Iron, protein, calcium, and beta-carotene. Look no further for the super tea of all teas!
How to Prepare Ceremonial Matcha
Use a Matcha Perfect Teaspoon to add one spoonful to the matcha bowl. Boil 8-10 ounces of water and let stand for 3-5 minutes off the heat to reduce to 80 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, use the matcha whisk to break down any tiny lumps in the powder until it is very smooth. When the temperature of the water has cooled, pour half the amount; or 4 ounces into the matcha bowl. Begin to whisk immediately using brush-like strokes. The matcha should start to froth at the top. Add the rest of the water to the bowl and proceed to whisk once more until blended; approximately 30 seconds. Pour matcha into cup of your choosing and enjoy.
To enjoy iced matcha, simply prepare the matcha as indicated above using only four ounces of water. Fill a cup or mug with ice, and then pour prepared matcha over the ice. Stir well and add more ice if needed.
