Drinking a delicious cup of matcha tea or a matcha latte is a healthy habit that has come to us from Japan, where matcha has been drunk for centuries. This remarkable and refined green tea is packed full with substances that increase your body’s natural resistance and contribute towards better fat combustion. In addition to matcha tea, Biotona now also offers Matcha Caps as a nutritional supplement!
Not just any green tea
Matcha is something completely different from ‘ordinary’ green tea. With ordinary tea, the leaves are allowed to brew for a few minutes before drinking. In contrast, matcha leaves are ground into a fine power that is then whisked directly in hot water. This makes it possible to benefit from all the natural goodness that matcha contains, which is fifteen times greater than with ordinary green tea.
The health benefits of matcha
Matcha powder is rich in cell-protecting anti-oxidants and gives a long-lasting energy boost (thanks to the presence of theine), but at the same time also has a relaxing effect (thanks to the presence of L-theanine). In addition, matcha has a high concentration of fat-soluble vitamins, blood-purifying chlorophyll and amino acids. It has been proven that matcha also supports fat combustion, which makes it ideal as an aid for weight control. Last but not least, your blood circulation, general vitality and natural resistance can all benefit from a daily dose of matcha.
The power of shade
Biotona Matcha is of the very highest quality and is made from fresh, young tea leaves that are exceptionally rich in nutrients. For a number of weeks before harvesting the tea plants are deliberately kept in the shade, using a series of large tarpaulins. To compensate for the resulting lack of sunlight, the leaves produce extra chlorophyll and amino acids. The longer the period of shading, the better the quality of the matcha!
Matcha without drinking!
What if you want to enjoy the benefits of matcha but don’t like its flavour? We have thought of that, as well! Biotona has developed Matcha Caps as a nutritional supplement, made from tea leaves from the first harvest after a shading of three weeks. Each capsule contains 440 mg of matcha powder.
