A pretty gift set suitable for anyone who loves green tea. Our powder is organic and of the highest ceremonial grade. This set enables us to participate in the beautiful ceremonial art of drinking Tea (in a simple way as it take years to master). Actually originating in China it was the Japanese who grew to love it and drink this way. This graceful ritual is used to help experience peace, harmony, mindfulness, respect and to to focus on the here and now. Not only does it taste delicious it helps bring energy with a sense of calm. Its caffeine content is balanced by its high levels of L-Theanine (an amino acid), reducing drowsiness and caffeine drops. Matcha powder boasts high concentrations of antioxidants with a variety of health benefits such as lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, supporting skin health, weight loss and stimulating focus and concentration. 1 cup of matcha is equal to 10 cups of normal green tea in nutritional content.

WHAT DOES CEREMONIAL GRADE MEAN?
Simply the youngest, most tender leaves are chosen. Camellia sinensis plants are shaded under reed covers producing greener leaves. These are steamed, dried and processed into grades before being stone ground into powder.
