In Japan, green tea and matcha have been drunk since 1191 and have been treated like medicines for a long time in the long history.
Green tea and matcha have astringency, bitterness, umami, and sweetness, and contain many nutrients.
Organic green tea / matcha main nutrients
Typical green tea ingredients are catechin (polyphenol), caffeine, theanine (amino acid), and vitamins.
The functionality and efficacy of its ingredients have also been elucidated in chemistry, supporting us and enriching our lives.
*However, green tea which is bottled in PET bottles may be artificially added with vitamin C or catechin, or may be extremely different from the natural ingredients originally contained in green tea.
Organic green tea / matcha catechin (polyphenol) benefits
It is the main component of green tea / matcha and is a type of polyphenol. It is also a component of bitterness and astringency. Sencha green tea is more common than gyokuro green tea and matcha which are cultivated by covering the green tea field (covered cultivation). Catechin increases when exposed to a lot of sunlight. It is known to have a particularly strong antioxidant effect and is expected to prevent lifestyle-related diseases. It also has the property of being easily dissolved in boiling water.
Organic green tea / matcha Caffeine benefits
It is a component of bitterness. It is abundant in green tea, which is said to have good quality, such as gyokuro green tea and high-grade sencha. It decreases as the green tea buds grow.
Since it stimulates the central nervous system, it can be expected to have the effect of refreshing the head. It also has a diuretic effect. Caffeine also has the property of being easily dissolved in boiling water.
However, it is very irritating to the stomach, so be careful not to drink too much.
Organic green tea / matcha theanine (amino acid) benefits
It is a component that accounts for more than half of the amino acids contained in green tea.
It is abundant in gyokuro green tea and matcha that cover the green tea field (covered cultivation), and decreases as it grows.
Theanine (amino acid) not only has a relaxing effect, but also moderates the action of caffeine. It has the property of melting well even at low temperatures.
Organic green tea / matcha vitamin benefits
Green tea and matcha are especially high in vitamin C, and also contain vitamins E and A. Vitamin C is water-soluble and sensitive to heat, but vitamin C contained in green tea and matcha is protected by catechins and has the property of being resistant to heat.
Vitamin A is about twice as much as carrots, vitamin C is about 3-4 times as much as spinach, and vitamin E is about 10 times as much.
Also, since vitamins E and A are insoluble, it is recommended to drink them as they are like matcha, or to use tea leaves brewed for cooking.
