Matcha (green tea powder) is an amazing alternative to coffee that provides ten times the antioxidants of normal green tea. The caffeine in matcha is a source of nutritional energy, therefore the body’s reaction to the caffeine in matcha is very different to that of coffee and energy drinks. When caffeine binds with the antioxidants it slows down the release of caffeine into the bloodstream, creating a longer amount of sustained energy (4-6 hours) as opposed to coffee in 1 hour. Matcha also helps reduce anxiety, jitters, and insomnia, and increase your metabolism and fat burning power.
The highest quality matcha is exclusively grown and produced in the rolling hills of Uji, in the ancient city of Kyoto, where Hibiki-an is located. Hibiki-an is known for its amazing service, reasonable shipping, and the quality is outstanding.
