Where the Matcha is Grown

Shizuoka, Japan - Shizuoka translates to “tranquil hills.” It is situated alongside the Pacific Ocean in central east coast of Japan.  The optimal growing conditions of dense coastal fog, mild seasons, mineral rich soils and ample sunlight make this matcha revered.

Robust Health Benefits of Matcha

Looking to boost your intake of antioxidants? Choose matcha, it holds the crown! (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity tests have shown high quality matcha weighing in 1600 units per gram.) For context, 1 gram servings of goji berries, dark chocolate, pecans, walnuts, pomegranates, blueberries, and the next 5 top contenders combined still would not account for the antioxidants in 1 Botanik matcha serving.

​The majority of the antioxidant contents are called catechin polyphenols, and the most abundant polyphenol is epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG. EGCG has been shown in studies to protect against the formation of cancer cells, increase metabolism, prevent heart disease, reduce cholesterol, protect brain cells from oxidative stress, improve liver health, regulate blood sugar, improve skin health, and slow the process of aging.

Matcha is also rich in chlorophyll. Some health benefits associated with chlorophyll include cancer prevention, weight loss, controlling body odor, relieving gas, boosting energy, radiant skin and acne treatment.  Green in your glass is good!

Focused Energy

Much of matcha's magic comes from the balance of caffeine and L-Theanine. 

Our matcha carries 35mg per serving, which is about 1/3 the amount of an average cup of coffee.  While everyone has different tolerance levels of caffeine, most find matcha to be a gentile lift, without jittery sensations or a crash.

L-Theanine is an amino acid that softens the edge of caffeine and provides a calm focused effect without a crash. It works by increasing both alpha brainwave activity and dopamine production in the  brain.  This translates to feelings of happiness, alertness, focus, and calm - many key components of mind/body wellness.
