Organic Matcha Green Tea Powder and Green Tea may sound quite similar, but there are property differences between these two types of tea. Despite their commonalities, both, organic Matcha green tea powder and green tea come from the same plant called Camellia Sinensis. The main difference between both is in how they are grown, harvested and prepared for sale.
Matcha is actually 100% green tea leaves that have been ground into a fine powder, while green tea is made from the infusion of the leaves.
Because Matcha is made from high-quality tea and the whole leaves are ingested, it is a more potent source of nutrients than green tea from a bag.
In addition to providing small amounts of vitamins and minerals, Matcha is rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which have been tied to protection against heart disease and cancer, as well as better blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging. Another polyphenol in Matcha called EGCG has been shown in research to boost metabolism.
Green tea and Matcha share the same health benefits, however, Matcha has 10 times the nutritional value of regular green tea and up to 137 times the amount antioxidants.
