Matcha is a type of green tea made by steaming, drying and grinding the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant into a fine powder.
Because you consume the whole leaf, it is said that you’re getting a much more concentrated source of antioxidants. Many claim that matcha lowers the risk of high blood pressure and Type 2 Diabetes.
