The green tea leaves contain an antioxidant epigallocatechin-3-gallate, caffeine, amino-acid L-Theanine, Folate, Choline, Riboflavin, minerals Zinc, Calcium, Manganese, Magnesium, Phosphorus, Potassium, Sodium, and Fluoride. All those compounds working in tandem provide potential health benefits including cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and diabetes prevention. Polyphenols (catechins) help to reduce blood cholesterol and high blood pressure, boost metabolism, and have antibacterial and anti-inflammatory effects.
Matcha is the purest form of powdered green tea, made from Tencha leaves of Camellia sinensis bush. Since Tencha is obtained from the first harvest in the Spring, Matcha green tea contains more antioxidants, caffeine, and amino acids than other kinds of green tea.
