Matcha is made from pure green tea leaves that have been stone ground into a fine powder. Because of the way its ground, drinking it provides the same health benefits you would get from actually eating a whole green tea leaf! Matcha has been used for centuries in Japan as a superfood for its powerful antioxidants and amino acids that help boost immunity, energy and concentration. In latte form it tastes amazing!
