In its purest form, matcha is a natural green tea leaf and is widely considered to be the 'king' of green tea. It was first recognised for its health benefits over 1,000 years ago in Japan, having first been used as a meditation tool. The L-Theanine contained within matcha is thought to have both calming and relaxant effects. It was also used for its ability to give those drinking it an energy boost without the jittery side-effects that you can get from other caffeine-filled products.
