The Powerful Matcha Tea

 We’ve all heard that green tea is a great form of antioxidants, but now matcha tea is taking the world by storm as the super antioxidant. Matcha contains the entire leaf of the Camellia Sinensis, the plant used to make green tea, black tea, oolong tea, and white tea.

The tea leaves are grown in the shade, which boosts their amino acids. Since the entire leaf is ground up once it is harvested, it contains 10 times as many antioxidants, and shade boots their amino acids. This is what gives it its super-powers.
