Why choose H & A’s Matcha Green Tea?
green_tea_1H & A’s Matcha is superb in quality, aroma and taste using 100% quality tea leaves through careful modern processing to retain its antioxidants and nutrition. Matcha green tea powder does not contain stems and veins of the tea leaf which contribute to lowered nutrition and bitter taste of some other brands of green tea powder. Sealed in a foil bag to prevent sunlight and oxidation, H & A’s Matcha Green Tea is guaranteed to be fresh.

 

 

What are polyphenols?
green_tea_2Fresh tea leaves are rich in powerful antioxidants called polyphenols which may constitute up to 30% of the dry leaf weight. In fresh, unfermented tea leaves, polyphenols exist as a series of chemicals called catechins.

Epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) is the most powerful catechin found in tea.

Widely acclaimed for overall health-promotion, catechins (EGCG) have been studied for the last few decades for their potential ability to:
* Support your immune system
* Fight the signs of normal aging
* Support your healthy digestion
* Promote healthy function of brain and liver
* Help promote your healthy gums
