Matcha became popular in Japan during the Kamakura period (1185-1333) when Zen Buddhist monks began to bring tea back from China. Matcha quickly gained popularity among the samurai class, who appreciated its energizing properties. It is made from the leaves of the Camellia sinensis plant, which are ground into a fine powder and then mixed with water. It is highly dissolvable which allows the user to enjoy the entire tea leaf and consume all its health benefits Matcha tea is rich in antioxidants, which are believed to offer a range of health benefits, including reduced inflammation and improved heart health.
