A favorite among many tea connoisseurs, matcha is a type of green tea that comes in powdered form. In cultivating matcha, the plants are shade-grown for several weeks prior to harvest. After harvesting the plants, processors steam, dry, and then grind the leaves (stems and veins removed) into a fine powder. As one of the few teas that contain the whole leaf, some proponents claim that matcha boasts more antioxidants than other tea varieties. In addition, matcha is purported to promote weight loss, lower cholesterol and blood pressure, support detox efforts, enhance mood, reduce stress, increase energy, keep blood sugar in check, and stimulate the immune system.
