What is matcha?

a closer look

Matcha is a powdered green tea that is high in antioxidants. Traditional green tea involves steeping the leaves in hot water and discarding them. Matcha, on the other hand, consists of powdered dried leaves that are mixed into a drink and consumed. Known for its unique, non-bitter taste and vibrant green color, it is considered the most aromatic of all green teas.

More energy

Despite its benefits, caffeine isn't perfect by itself. Matcha, on the other hand, contains caffeine and an amino acid called L-Theanine. Combining these two energy amplifiers will provide a long-lasting boost of energy without the anxious jitters or crash. A cup of coffee may provide up to 1-3 hours of energy, but a cup of matcha will provide up to 6-7 hours.

    Established in 1751

    Bota Matcha's matcha comes from a small organic farm that knows a thing or two about cultivating green tea leaves. Throughout centuries, this local farm has grown high grade tea with loving care, so the methods, soil quality, and breeds of tea have been perfected over time. The result: an impossibly creamy beverage that is hard to resist.

Picked by hand

a lost art

Leaves picked by machine do not produce the same high quality tea as those picked by hand. The delicate floral scent and mellow flavor of sprouts are produced when they are hand-picked from forks that already exist.
