It is well documented that green tea is the healthiest drink on the planet (if you don't believe me, you can ask google here). For those who are familiar with green tea, you'll know that it's loaded with healthy nutrients such as antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and caffeine. If you're unfamiliar - start with our post "What is Matcha".
So now you may be wondering - what's different between matcha and green tea? Isn't matcha just green tea? The answer is YES. Matcha is green tea. However, it's fundamentally different than how you've been drinking green tea before. We explained that Matcha is powdered so you can literally ingest the natural nutrients from the tea leaves.
This results in a major difference in the amount of nutrients you receive.
According to a report by ConsumerLab.com, matcha contained roughly 3-5x more nutrients compared to standard green tea or bottled green tea drinks.
Matcha has been found to prevent cancer cell growth, prevent cardiovascular disease, reduce inflammation and the onset of arthritis, boost metabolism, reduce cholesterol and the absorption of fat molecules, limit the invasion and growth of viruses and bacteria, prevent brain aging and neurodegenerative diseases.
There you have it. Green tea is the healthiest plant in the world, and Tenzo Tea is the healthiest drink on the planet.
