Maximising The Health Benefits Of Matcha Tea

Boasting the highest levels of antioxidants from any superfoods, and proven health benefits such as boosted energy, immunity and metabolism, it's no surprise that Matcha tea has gained popularity. In this blogpost, we explore how to get the best health benefits from your daily Matcha tea drinking.

Reminder What Makes Matcha So Powerful

Matcha tea has been proven to have the highest antioxidant rating of all superfoods. According to The ORAC test (Oxygen Radical Absorption Capacity), which measures the antioxidant levels in foods, matcha green tea measures 1384 units per gram. For context, that’s:

  • 13x the antioxidants of pomegranates,
  • 15x the antioxidants of blueberries, and
  • 125x that of spinach. 

Furthermore, Matcha is very high in catechin antioxidants. Its most powerful catechin is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), shown to reduce inflammation, fight free radicals, and prevent a whole range of chronic diseases.

1. Choose High-Quality Matcha

To fully reap the health benefits of Matcha tea, it's crucial to select high-quality products. Look for ceremonial-grade Matcha, such as KOSHO Byuti Organic Matcha Tea. Ceremonial-grade Matcha tea undergoes meticulous cultivation, picking, and processing. Inferior quality Matcha may contain additives or lack the rich nutrients found in premium-grade options. Investing in quality Matcha ensures you're getting the most potent and pure form of the tea.

2. Proper Matcha Storage

To maintain the freshness and potency of your Matcha tea, proper storage is essential. Store it in an airtight container away from light, heat, and moisture. Exposure to these elements can degrade the tea's quality, flavour, and health benefits. KOSHO Byuti Organic Matcha Tea comes sealed in an air tight tin, to ensure optimal freshness. With the recommended daily bowl of Matcha tea, the 30g tin generally lasts 1 month.

Please note: KOSHO Byuti Matcha can appear to have little clumps. This is not due to moisture, but the static that can develop between the microfine, granite-ground Matcha particles. More on how to get rid of the clumps in the next step...

3. Mindful Matcha Preparation

Preparing Matcha tea is an art that requires attention and patience. Follow these steps to ensure you're maximising its health benefits:

a) Sift the Matcha: Use a fine-mesh sieve or sifter to remove any clumps. This step guarantees a smooth and consistent texture.

b) Use the Right Tools: Traditional Matcha preparation requires a bamboo whisk (chasen), a ceramic bowl (chawan), and a bamboo scoop (chashaku). These tools help create the perfect frothy consistency and preserve the tea's integrity.

c) Appropriate Water Temperature: Heat fresh, filtered water to around 80°C (or boil and let cool). Avoid boiling water, as it can scorch the delicate Matcha leaves and affect the taste causing bitterness.

d) Whisk Vigorously: Gradually add a small amount of hot water to the Matcha and whisk it in a zigzag motion until it becomes frothy. This process aerates the tea, enhancing its flavour and texture.

4. Optimal Matcha Consumption

For optimal health benefits, consider these strategies when consuming Matcha tea:

Moderation is Key: While Matcha tea is packed with beneficial compounds, it's essential to consume it in moderation. Aim for one to three cups per day to avoid excessive caffeine intake.

Mindful Ritual: Embrace the Japanese tea ceremony's spirit by savouring Matcha mindfully. Take a moment to appreciate the aroma, taste, and vibrant color. Cultivating this mindful approach enhances the overall experience and deepens your connection with the tea.

From smoothies and baked goods to desserts and salad dressings, Matcha's vibrant flavour and rich antioxidants can elevate a variety of dishes.
