What is an AA graded Matcha?

OMGTea AA Grade Matcha has been blended using 1st and 2nd harvest leaves and is of a quality on par with ‘ceremonial grade’. As a mid-range market matcha, it is still better quality than most matcha products labelled premium or ceremonial that you will find on the UK market. However, if you truly want the 'best of the best' then you may wish to consider OMGTea AAA + Grade Organic Matcha 30g, which is ideal for those who like a traditionally straight Japanese style.

Summary

More Information

What is Matcha Green Tea?

Japanese Matcha comes from the same Camellia Sinensis plant as all teas but about four weeks before it is harvested the Matcha tea field is shaded in Bamboo, resulting in a 90% reduction of sunlight. Now growing almost in the dark, Camellia Sinensis compensates for a lack of light by producing chlorophyll and thus making its leaves rich in Amino Acids. At the time of the harvest only the youngest most tender, emerald green leaves are picked from the top third of the bush. After being steamed and then freeze-dried, the highest quality leaves are selected and the stems gently removed.

The last step in producing Matcha takes place in a factory where special granite stone mills grind Tencha tea into superfine Matcha powder. The grinding itself is done in a cleanroom in which temperature and humidity are kept constant.

Is Matcha better than coffee?

Matcha has far less caffeine than Coffee in just one serving, so offers a more sustained Energy boost with less jitters. It also contains higher levels of Antioxidants, and L-Theanine, which is thought to improves focus.

By switching to OMGTea AA Grade Matcha, OMG Tea can almost guarantee that you won’t need coffee to get you through your day. You might still like the coffee taste so go for de-caff as the coffee “hit” won’t be required anymore.

Is it better to drink Matcha hot or cold?

Even if you want to make iced matcha or a matcha latte, OMGTea AA Grade Matcha will dissolve best in hot water. However, avoid using boiling water - it shouldn't be over 80°C as boiling will degrade the nutrients and could result in making the taste bitter.

Studies have shown that consuming Matcha with a little Lemon or lime juice helps protect the matcha during Digestion allowing you to get more of the benefits from it. A splash of citrus may boost the antioxidant power by up to 4 times!

Is green tea with Matcha good for you?

The potential benefits of Matcha green tea are so wide ranging that it’s difficult to know where to begin. Some of these benefits are also backed up by ongoing scientific and medical research, which is beginning to try and establish links to Slimming & Weight LossHeart Health and type 2 diabetes. This research continues.
