Matcha Green Tea from Japan

Heapwell Superfoods focus on facilitating a healthy lifestyle for everyone that is affordable, introducing super foods that are not only great tasting, but nutritious with great dietary benefits. Matcha is a finely powdered green tea which is ground from high-quality, shade-grown tea leaves that give the powder its bright green color. Unlike most teas, with Matcha, you're not drinking a tea-infused water-based concoction, you're actually consuming tea leaves in a powdered form. 

Matcha is also being used in many dishes from ice cream and brownies, to lattes and smoothies simply for its unique flavor. However, to reap the full health benefits, it is recommended in its traditional form of tea. 

 

Tea Ceremony

In Japan, drinking tea is a profound ritual called Chanoyu or Sado, which means "way of tea". It involves preparing the Japanese Matcha Tea in a calm, reflective manner. The process that’s almost a ceremony, focuses on the aesthetics of tea-making that are soothing to the body and soul. It is almost an attempt at refining the art of living with the addition of matcha. Only the finest and purest quality of matcha is used in a sacred ritual like this one, just like our Heapwell Organic Ceremonial Matcha. Our matcha complements the rituals of Japanese tea making. It is tranquility in a cup. Sip it and enjoy the celebration of the being.

One cup of matcha is equal to three cups of regular green tea - just think how much more nutrients, antioxidants, and detoxification support your body receives by drinking several cups of matcha per day. Matcha especially gives a metabolic boost and keeps us hydrated. Drinking several cups each day is an easy way to gently assist our system in detoxifying and promoting weight loss benefits. People generally follow a detox routine for a day or a couple of days at most. But, consuming matcha on a regular basis is recommended as it would allow your body proper time to cleanse and eliminate toxins and naturally suppress an over-stimulated diet.
