The Benefits of Matcha

The Benefits of Matcha

Metolius Tea’s Japanese green tea is a smooth and accessible entry into the world of matcha. It is rich in both theanine and caffeine and helps to cultivate a balanced energy.

Chlorophyll, the element that gives green tea and other plants their signature vibrant color, has a myriad of health benefits, including boosting the immune system and improving energy. Because our matcha is carefully shade grown, it is substantially richer in chlorophyll than other teas.

Matcha is also rich in antioxidants, which help prevent cell damage, slowing or preventing chronic diseases. While most tea is steeped and the leaves discarded, when you drink matcha, you are consuming the entire leaf. This means a plethora of antioxidants -- higher than gigantic bowls of blueberries and spinach combined!

We offer two varieties of Matcha: our unblended Matcha and our Matcha Latte blend. Our Matcha Latte blend uses eco-friendly organic cane sugar and Madagascar vanilla bean for quick, barista-friendly preparation of delicious drinks!

We love to sweeten our matcha with our brand new Oregon Lavender simple syrup.

Other great Matcha fun:

  • Add a tablespoon to your smoothie

  • Add it to baked goods -- try mixing in enough matcha to turn your cake or frosting mix to a pleasant spring green color
