When you're made for Matcha

If you’re a green tea devotee, you’ll love Matcha! It’s made from the green tea plant (Camellia sinensis) and cultivated under special conditions for subtle taste and extra phytonutrients. Twenty days before harvest, the plants are covered to block sunlight, this traditional technique creates a unique taste, more chlorophyll for a vibrant green colour and higher levels of L-theanine. Matcha is like a supercharged green tea (it has 137x more antioxidants than regular green tea) but with a fresher, more mild taste. BioBalance Matcha Powder makes a delicious matcha tea. The leaves are stoneground into powder, making it super convenient when you’re on the go as there’s no waiting for your tea leaves to steep. Simply add one teaspoon to hot or cold water and stir or for a beautiful Matcha latte add the milk of your choice. Keep in mind that Matcha tea contains some caffeine – about 70g per cup (like instant coffee).
Matcha powder is super versatile and heat stable so can be added to baking. It adds a striking vibrant, bright green shade. It goes well in smoothies, desserts and sauces, the possibilities are endless!
