Antioxidants & Catechins

Green tea is rich with catechins (EGCg), a type of natural antioxidants with a large amount of health benefits. All our green teas are high in antioxidants, but Matcha has 115x times higher in antioxidants and vitamins. These special and rare antioxidants protect against obesity, high blood pressure and tooth decay. The tea plants are protected against direct sunlight 4-6 weeks before harvest in Japan. This shadowing process causes chlorophyll and amino acids to increase in the tea leaves. It’s a antibacterial and nature substance and even helps to prevent all kind of diseases.
