Matcha was produced in China and finally flourished in Japan. Its production has two keywords covering and steaming.

Twenty days before spring tea is picked, a scaffold must be set up to cover reed curtains and straw curtains, with a shading rate of over 98%.

Simple covering is also available. Covered with black plastic gauze, the shading rate can only reach 70-85%.

Experiments have proved that the effects of shading tea with different materials and colors are different, and then the tender tea leaves in spring are collected and steamed to make tea cakes or tea balls for preservation, and then bake them when they are ready to be eaten.

Although ordinary green tea contains extremely high nutrients, the water-soluble part of the tea is only 35%, and a large amount of active ingredients that are insoluble in water are thrown away as tea dregs.

Matcha is ingested into the human body, commonly known as eating tea, so it is a more effective source of nutrients than steeped green tea.

In addition to providing a small amount of vitamins and minerals, matcha is also rich in antioxidants called polyphenols, which can prevent heart disease and cancer, and can better regulate blood sugar, lower blood pressure and fight aging.

Another polyphenol in matcha called EGCG has been shown in research to promote metabolism and slow or stop the growth of cancer cells.

Because the whole leaf is consumed in matcha, the caffeine obtained may be three times that of a cup of steeped tea.

Matcha lovers say that compared with the caffeine in coffee, matcha contains a natural substance called l-theanine, which can relax, calm and feel good.

Nevertheless, it is recommended to quit all forms of caffeine (including matcha) at least six hours before going to bed to ensure a good night’s sleep.
