BioBalance Certified Organic Japanese Matcha Powder comes from green tea leaves which are carefully hand grown in over 4,000 hectares of organic estates in the shady highland valleys of Japan where tea has been farmed for more than 800 years. Our matcha powder is cultivated using the ancient practice of blocking out sunlight twenty days before harvest. This concentrates the production of amino acids, catechins and antioxidants, to bring out a strong natural green colour and a milder pleasant fresh taste. When you consume matcha powder you ingest the entire leaf and receive 100% of the nutrients like chlorophyll (which supports your body in eliminating heavy metals and chemicals), antioxidants and amino acids in every sip or sprinkle. Just think: one teaspoon of matcha tea powder contains 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea*. The Buddhist monks popularised matcha tea around the 11th Century, and to this day the Japanese people enjoy the slow and graceful process of creating and brewing the perfect cup of tea.
Enjoy your daily Zen moment. Kampai!
Each batch of BioBalance Certified Organic Japanese Matcha Powder is fully tested here in New Zealand for heavy metal and radiation contamination to ensure it is safe to mix into your daily routine.
