The baking time can vary depending on the strength.
- The vitalizing effect
Matcha tea is exceptional energy, health, and anti-aging drink.
It supports a vital and active way of life. It owes its positive properties to the unusual shading of the tea fields and gentle processing with the help of special stone mills into powder tea. In contrast to conventional tea, the entire tea leaf is processed.
The concentration of valuable ingredients is therefore significantly higher and can be 100% absorbed by the body. Matcha is rich in vitamins A, B, and E and contains three times more vitamin C than an orange. The many amino acids, including L-theanine, have a relaxing and invigorating effect at the same time.
- The green tea espresso
In comparison to coffee, caffeine is only released in the intestine, which means that the invigorating effect occurs later but lasts longer. The caffeine in coffee is already released when it comes into contact with stomach acid and has a more aggressive effect – the effect occurs immediately, but quickly wears off again.
The caffeine in matcha tea leads to increased mental alertness. It helps reduce stress and increases concentration. The high caffeine content also stimulates metabolism, breathing, and heart activity. The ideal conditions improve physical endurance, support fat loss, and promote responsiveness.
Matcha strengthens the immune system and the defense cells.
- Drink of immortality
Matcha tea reduces appetite and increases metabolism. It reduces cholesterol and is effective against obesity. A study with more than 40,000 participants even showed a decrease in deaths from cardiovascular disease.
The consumption of matcha tea increases the quality of life and slows down physical and mental aging. The cultivation of the tea leaves was a closely guarded secret of the imperial family for a long time, which is why Matcha tea is also known under the name “Potion of Immortality”. As an ancient remedy, Matcha Matcha contains numerous health-promoting ingredients. The tea supports the immune system, has a rejuvenating effect on the cell culture of the skin, and regulates blood pressure. Studies show a protective effect against tooth decay due to fluorine compounds.
It has also been proven that matcha tea has a growth-inhibiting effect on cancer cells. The substance epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) attaches to existing cancer cells and prevents further spread. Matcha consists of pure leaf meat. The concentration of the cancer-inhibiting EGCG is much higher than that of green tea.
