Our matcha powder is a 100% pure and certified organic blend with no additives or other nasties and it has up to 137 x the antioxidants of regular green tea.

Matcha Maiden is blazing a bright green trail! Being in a conveniently powdered form, you can add your matcha it into anything and everything – smoothies, lattes, desserts and raw treats, face masks, salad dressings, the possibilities are endless.

matcha powder

What is matcha?

Matcha powder is simply green tea leaves stone ground into a fine powdered form. The actual leaves are the same as the regular green tea leaves you know and love, but the preparation and method of consumption is different giving you a whole lot of extra benefits. Whereas regular green tea drinkers brew the leaves in hot water and then consume only the water (later throwing out the tea leaves), matcha drinkers dissolve the whole leaf in water thereby reaping more potent benefits.  Matcha tea bushes are also grown under a special shade for three to four weeks allowing the levels of chlorophyll, caffeine and amino acids like L-Theanine increase and the leaves to become a deeper coloured green.

The matcha journey began many centuries ago among Zen Buddhist monks who enjoyed its sustained and calming energy boost in their meditations. In its traditional context, the carefully choreographed preparation and consumption of matcha forms the basis of the beautiful Japanese tea ceremony honouring stillness, connection and mindfulness. In modern times, however, its versatility and impressive load of antioxidants along with other vitamins and minerals have led a matcha revival celebrating its benefits for metabolism, immunity, energy and overall wellbeing as well as its role as a healthier form of caffeination. There’s just so matcha to love, the possibili-teas are endless!

The benefits of Matcha
Maiden matcha tea

icon muscle

It can help boost energy

One of the main reasons why Matcha Maiden fell in love with matcha is because of its performance as a healthier caffeine alternative. During a bout of adrenal fatigue causing a total coffee ban, we discovered the beautiful matcha green tea powder and its gentler delivery of caffeine to the body.

It contains about one third to half the amount of caffeine as a coffee, but it works differently to the caffeine found in coffee beans. Due to the unique amino acid in green tea called L-theanine, the caffeine releases much more slowly into the body and produces a calmer, alert energy boost as opposed to the spike but subsequent crash and jitters that coffee consumption can result in.

his gentler, sustained energy release is why matcha gained such favour during the Zen Buddhist monk meditations and it helps activate the alpha brain waves in the body enhancing focus and concentration. It also makes it a beautiful alternative energy boost for those who are caffeine sensitive or who don’t take well to coffee.

icon boost metabolism

It may help boost metabolism

This same antioxidant, EGCg, has been shown through various studies to boost metabolism and stop the growth of fat cells. A study in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition from 2005 found that participants who drank catechin-laden green tea everyday dropped almost twice as much weight as participants who didn’t over the 12 week period.

Consuming green tea has been shown to increase the process of thermogenesis, which describes the body’s rate of burning calories. The caffeine content in green tea can also contribute to the gentle support of weight loss through boosting the metabolic rate and increasing fat burning.

icon antioxidant

It is packed with antioxidants

As mentioned, matcha is a concentrated form of green tea and can have up to 137 times the antioxidants bringing many potential benefits for immunity, detoxification, anti-aging, and general wellbeing. Unlike what you might expect, matcha outperforms the sources of antioxidants like blueberries or pomegranates that we turn to more often – it may have even up to 20 times more (based on the antioxidant rating scale known as ORAC)!

Among these antioxidants, catechins are the kind that is most potent and beneficial and one particular kind called EGCg makes up about 60% of the catechins in matcha. EGCg is widely recognised for its possible cancer fighting abilities and potential to fight free radicals in the body that disrupt our health (and cause the signs of aging). Matcha is also rich in fiber, chlorophyll and other vitamins such as vitamin C, selenium, chromium and zinc.

icon versatile

It’s so versatile

The best thing about matcha is how easy it is to incorporate into your daily routine! Due to its powdered form, it can be prepared in its traditional format as a hot beverage – either a plain tea or a latte. But it can also be added as a supplement to other drinks or foods i.e. smoothies or protein shakes as a booster or as an ingredient in raw cooking, baking, salad dressings, dips and seasonings.

Matcha also has topical benefits for the skin and can be whipped into a DIY face mask, body scrub or other beauty products bringing its high antioxidant content to your skin cells. The possibili-teas are endless and we LOVE experimenting with this vibrant green superfood!

Some of our favourite recent developments in the kitchen are the bulletproof matcha latte or a matcha protein bliss ball for an easy snack on the go! If you’re feeling adventurous you could even whip up a matcha mojito – it’s all about balance right? It can pretty much be worked into your life in any way you can imagine. There’s so matcha more to life if you’re up for it!
