Matcha is a powdered green tea originally from Japan used in tea ceremonies.
Kusmi's Japanese Matcha Tea is a premium powdered green tea since its leaves are crushed between two millstones after being rolled and dried.
One of the major health benefits of matcha tea is that it delivers a mega dose of antioxidants in every sip. According to the latest innovation in antioxidant research, matcha is packed with exponentially more antioxidants than any other ‘superfood’.
