The origin of matcha dates back thousands of years to the Tang Dynasty in China, despite it being deeply rooted in Japanese culture today. While many often confuse matcha with green tea, the two have very distinctive flavour profiles, cultivation and preparation methods, as well as health benefits.

In fact, matcha is derived from the same plant as green tea, known as Camellia Sinensis. However, unlike green tea which is processed in a way that retains its natural bitter flavours but with a light, delicate mouthfeel, matcha tends to have richer, more intense flavours. Moreover, matcha is known to be very high in antioxidants—think anywhere between three to ten times the amount in standard green tea. This makes it a highly beneficial ingredient to consume for anti-inflammatory and immunity-boosting benefits.
