Organic Tea Farming
THE MATCHA TOKYO employs a user-friendly system so that more people can easily access our products. We also employ organic farming, which requires time and a lot of work.
The Features of Authentic Matcha Green Tea
Matcha is a type of green tea. The leaves of the tea tree are steamed, dried, and then ground using a stone mill.
Tea trees meant for making matcha are grown in the shade. Protecting the trees from sunlight contributes to their rich flavor and heightened nutritional content. Moreover, the veins are removed from the leaves before they’re processed. This makes matcha tea leaves truly unique.
Sadly, however, not all the matcha leaves available on the market meet this standard.
Matcha, like all crops, must be grown in a fertilized, pest-free environment. Organic matcha relies on rich soil and natural techniques rather than agricultural chemicals or chemical fertilizers.
While organic farming is an arduous endeavor, we employ this method to create truly sustainable, eco-friendly products.
Our Matcha Products: What Makes Them Special
Our company produces high-quality matcha, employing a unique style of farming and carefully selected tea leaves. Here the features that make our products so flavorful:
1. Clean Water
As irrigation is essential in tea farming, The Matcha Tokyo uses fresh spring water.
2. Rich Soil
The soil is soft, free of chemical fertilizers, and full of beneficial bacteria.
3. The Location
Our tea farm is located in a remote area, limiting outside influences.
4. The One-and-Only Blending
We have developed an original method of blending our carefully grown leaves before skillfully grinding them.
We aim to deliver matcha to people all around the world in an open and friendly style.
Our company is based in Tokyo, not in a place known for its tea production, as we believe that a metropolis with a deep cultural history offers more opportunities.
Matcha is a delicious drink, with unlimited possibilities. Now, we have created a plan to deliver it worldwide!
The Benefits of Matcha Green Tea
Green tea, a Japanese superfood, contains a variety of nutritional elements. The following are three major features of matcha green tea:
1. Supporting Brain Health
Many people are becoming weary of smartphones and social media, as they are flooded by advertisements and stressful news.
This extended screen time may affect us more than we realize.
Matcha green tea contains a large amount of theanine and catechin, which enhance brain power.
For those who want to heighten the quality of their study or work and keep a sharp mind, matcha could be the ideal morning beverage.
2. Assisting Mental Health
Tea has a relaxing effect. One of the reasons for this is its theanine content.
Matcha is made with ground tea leaves, so its theanine content is very high. Tea helps us sleep better, and lessens fatigue. It’s the best way to start the day at ease!
Matcha has been an integral part of Japanese tea ceremony and is thus associated with the spirit of Zen, which focuses on attaining inner equilibrium. This is also in tune with the contemporary mental health movement.
3. Probiotic Elements
Probiotic bacteria have become a common concern, as more people are interested in the state of their intestinal flora. The health of our intestines is extremely important, as they directly support the nervous system.
Matcha helps improve the balance of probiotic bacteria, which makes it an ideal drink to consume in the morning.
THE MATCHA TOKYO: Green Tea Beverages for Every Lifestyle
