What is ceremonial-grade Matcha?
Top-grade matcha is a versatile product that you can utilize for daily tea, mixed beverages, and food. This is the highest grade of tea powder and is the choice product for tea ceremonies.
Traditionally, Japanese Zen Buddhist monks use Matcha in tea ceremonies. The monks prepare, serve, and drink Matcha as hot tea in their meditation ceremonies, and this practice traces way back in the 12th century.
The tea supposedly gives the monks a sense of awakeness, calm spirituality, and focus. It is conducive for deep thinking and meditating, which is crucial in a Zen lifestyle.
Today, science proves this calm and focused effect that Matcha gives the mind. We now know that Matcha has caffeine at 70 mg per cup.
The caffeine in Matcha releases gradually in your body, so it doesn't give you the nervous and "jittery" energy that coffee and other energy drinks give. The slow release of caffeine by Matcha gives you longer-lasting sustainable and pleasant power that lasts 4 to 6 hours - useful for meditation!
Additionally, Matcha contains a vital amino acid called theanine. One theanine in Matcha is L-Theanine.
It is a compound that helps your body regulate your stress hormones and stimulate your feel-good hormones like oxytocin, dopamine, serotonin, and endorphins. L-Theanine gives your mind a sense of calm alertness and improves your focus and concentration.
These results supplement the consistent energy provided by Matcha caffeine.
These meditation-friendly effects of ceremonial-grade Matcha have benefitted the Japanese Zen Monks since the 12th century and until now. The secret to these benefits come from how Matcha is made.
How Matcha is made
Matcha comes from the same plant green tea leaves come from - the Camellia sinensis. Green tea production requires harvesting sun-grown tea leaves, drying them, and then putting them on teabags.
Matcha production, however, goes through a more specialized process.
Camellia sinensis plants for matcha production are shade-grown. This process increases the level of caffeine, flavonoids, and nutrients in the leaves, giving them a more pronounced taste and colour.
The leaves are then stone-ground to fine dust powder. The resulting powder is what we call Matcha and the finest and greenest powder grades top quality and sells as ceremonial-grade.
In Yodha Matcha, we provide you with ceremonial-grade green tea powder - no less but the best for you and your health.
Where our Matcha comes from
We source our Matcha from farm-owned productions in Mt. Uji, Japan - it's the real deal. In these farms, workers produce your well-loved green tea powder traditionally.
The traditional way of making Matcha means that we don't use artificial fertilizers and harmful chemicals like pesticides in growing our Camellia sinensis. Using inorganic compounds in matcha production adversely affects the quality of the green tea leaves and the final product.
Matcha production should be as pure as nature does it - organic.
Natural farming not only makes high-quality Matcha, but it is an environmentally sustainable production process. Our farmers in Mt. Uji helps protect the environment by ensuring that the soil is always healthy and free from harmful substances.

You can casually use Matcha to flavour and colour delicacies like mochi, soba, gelato, lattes, and other confectionery. Matcha is now a popular ingredient in tea shops, cafes, and desert places.

Matcha’s shade-growth concentrates its nutrition levels.
Aside from its L-Theanine-caffeine combo that results in calm and focused energy, it is packed with flavonoids, antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals.
The main flavonoid in matcha is the antioxidant EGCG or Epigallocatechin gallate, which is vital in the mitigation of oxidation of bad cholesterol in the blood.
It also acts as an anti-inflammatory that aids in relieving pain and muscle inflammation. It is excellent in muscle restoration post-workout.
It has vitamins A, B1, B2, B6, C, E, K and minerals potassium, magnesium, calcium, zinc, phosphorus, and iron.
Vitamins C and E, and minerals potassium and magnesium are excellent in helping the body avoid cardiovascular diseases.
Matcha is high in fibre, which lowers total and LDL cholesterol, the variance in blood sugar levels, and the chance of acquiring diabetes.
L-Theanine, in itself, reduces stress and improves focus. It also restores memory and cognition, which makes it an excellent aid in mitigating geriatric degradation and age-related brain damage.
Matcha encourages a healthy and active lifestyle that is free from disease. It helps you have a pleasant mental state and feeling-good overall health.
According to the World Health Organization or WHO, 1.9 billion adults are overweight, and 650 million are obese. These people are at high risk of dying from diabetes complications, cancer, and heart disease.
In the US alone, 647,000 people per year die because of heart disease.
With a great lifestyle, you avoid obesity, which can lead you to several deadly diseases.
A matcha lifestyle can help you avoid diseases such as cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and other morbidities that can shorten your life.
If you are struggling to acquire an active and healthy lifestyle, you can try switching to better food options first. Including matcha can significantly help you.

What is fiber?
Dietary fiber is a particular kind of carbohydrate that our bodies cannot digest.
You can find fiber in edible plant foods like cereals, vegetables, lentils, fruits, nuts, dried peas, and grains.
Fiber volumes up your food, but it doesn’t increase its caloric content. It slows your stomach's emptying, shortens intestinal transport, shields the carbohydrates against enzymes, and delays your glucose absorption, which results in lowered variances in your blood sugar levels.
How does matcha help you exercise?
Matcha’s caffeine and L-Theanine combination gives you focus, long-lasting energy, and a pleasant state of mind that can motivate you in keeping on going when working out.
EGCG, as an anti-inflammatory, reduces muscle inflammation and pain. It also helps post-workout cell and tissue repair, making it popular for many athletes today.
Its antioxidant vitamins also help by declogging the veins from free radicals, making cardio workouts less troublesome.
Its magnesium and potassium content also improves blood vessel conditions making extended workouts a breeze.
What are the side effects of matcha?
When not taken in dramatic amounts, the only effect of matcha in the body is good.
However, when you don’t control your caffeine cravings and are drinking four or more cups of matcha a day, you might build tolerance on the compound and have a caffeine addiction, which leads to many complications.
Matcha in itself is excellent for your health, but like for anything else, you have to take moderation into consideration.
