Preferred Matcha Tea Company offers organic, superior quality Matcha tea. Our tea is grown in nutrient-rich organic soil in the elevated highlands of Japan with an abundance of dense fog and fed by mineral-rich underground waters. This land provides the most ideal natural conditions for cultivating authentic, superior organic green tea.
Matcha - which literally means "powdered tea" is a special type of green tea that is whisked with hot water to make a frothy beverage. Samurai warriors drank matcha green tea before battle because of its energizing properties, and Buddhist monks drink it to remain alert while meditating. Phytochemicals in green tea positively affect mood and cognition. Scientific studies assert that the combination of caffeine and L-theanine, an amino acid found in some teas, improve performance in attention-switching tasks and alertness. Matcha tea is loaded with antioxidants and has antimicrobial properties. Matcha tea is the only form of tea where the entire leaf is consumed, and therefore delivers more of the healthful elements of green tea than other forms. Preferred Matcha Tea Company only sells ceremonial Matcha tea, which comes from the first harvest and provides the smoothest, sweetest flavor.
