A Complete Guide to Matcha

A Complete Guide to Matcha

Yamecha Matcha is a Japanese green tea. Matcha is grown in Yame-shi.  This tea accounts for 3% of Japan's total tea production. Yamecha Matcha is a high-end tea made in the same regions where one of the first teas was created. Matcha is a powdered green tea made with traditional stone wheels. Because hot water is poured immediately into the bowl, it is a very demanding tea. It forms a frothy mousse when combined with tea. Matcha is a vibrant jade green tea with a tonic, rich flavor.

The Growing Process of Yame Green Tea:

Yame green tea is grown in a somewhat different way than other tea leaves. These tea leaves are grown in a unique way, with the tea bushes being shaded for two weeks before harvesting begins. This happens in May most of the time. Bamboo shades have traditionally been used to cover these tea leaves. These shades shield the plant from the sun's rays, allowing 90 percent of it to remain sun-free. Because photosynthesis slows as a result of the shadowing, the number of amino acid residues in the tea increases. As a result, the tea becomes significantly sweeter, with a bolder character and a richer flavor.


How Matcha Tea is Different from Green Tea?

In China, the Camellia Sinensis plant produces both matcha and normal green tea. Matcha, on the other hand, is grown differently than conventional green tea since the tea leaves are shaded and shielded from the sun for about a month until harvesting. This causes a rise in the number of amino acids by increasing the number of chlorophyll levels, which turns the leaves greener and hence leaves a darker shade. The leaves are then removed and processed into a fine powder. Because the entire tea leaf is used in this procedure, Matcha has higher caffeine and antioxidant content than Green tea. Green tea, on the other hand, uses a portion of the leaf.

Health Effects of Matcha Tea:

Matcha contains a lot of caffeine, which helps us stay awake throughout the day. Because it is delivered in little amounts, this caffeine is far superior to the caffeine found in coffee. As a result, we will be able to experience this mental sharpness for a long period.

One of Matcha's most important elements, vitamin C, can make our skin glow and prevent acne. Vitamin C, which is present in this tea, can also aid in preventing wrinkles.

Matcha contains a high concentration of catechins. This helps in the stability of hazardous free radicals. Catechins are 137 times more abundant in this tea than in any other green tea. Matcha may help you consume more antioxidants, which may help prevent cell loss and even lessen your risk of developing numerous terminal diseases.

Green tea contains antioxidants which can assist the body in burning calories by speeding up our metabolism.

A daily cup of Matcha tea can help you maintain good dental health. It assists in maintaining a healthy amount of acid in the mouth.
