Discover Matcha Green Tea
Brewed in Asia for almost 1,000 years, matcha green tea was sipped by Buddhist monks during meditation and was the energy drink of choice for Samurai going into battle. Today, it graces tea cups, mouthwatering entrees and desserts, and a bevy of DIY beauty concoctions. Matcha offers a source of potassium, vitamins A and C, iron, calcium, and it has ten times more antioxidants and nutrients than regular green tea. A trifecta of chlorophyll, catechins and the ultimate feel-good amino acid L-theanine make matcha a lean, green, does-everything machine. So, drink it up, dab it on, or both.
Antioxidant Protection- Not all antioxidants are equal. Scientists have found that matcha contains over 100 times more of the uber-potent antioxidant EGCGg than any other tea. And just one bowl of matcha provides over 5 times more antioxidants than any other food—the highest rated by the ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) method. In fact, matcha is higher in antioxidants than spinach, blueberries and dark chocolate.
Promotes Calm & Concentration- For thousands of years, Chinese Daoists and Japanese Zen Buddhist monks have relied on matcha to meditate while still remaining alert. Not only does the amino acid L-theanine in matcha promote relaxation without drowsiness, but it helps improve mood, memory and concentration by boosting dopamine and serotonin (aka our 'happy' hormone).
Healthy Weight Management - Drinking matcha has been shown to rev the metabolism, and increase energy and endurance—sans the side effects usually associated with diet aids or stimulants. As an all-natural weight management tool, replace your morning or midday cup of joe with a teaspoon of matcha to satisfy cravings and help trim your waistline.
Health Inside and Out- Scientists have documented matcha’s hair-strengthening and skin-boosting properties, but its benefits are more than skin deep. Studies have linked drinking matcha regularly to improved cardiovascular health, while high levels of chlorophyll make matcha a powerful detoxifier, and catechins support the immune system and overall health.
Product Description: Japanese Ceremonial Grade for Lattes, Smoothies and Baked Goods
Ingredients: Organic Matcha
Directions: Add 1 teaspoon of matcha to a bowl or cup, and pour 1oz of hot (not boiling) water. Using a bamboo whisk, whisk together until smooth and frothy. Add additional water to taste, and drink immediately.
How We're Different
What makes our matcha a superior sip? For starters, it’s a true matcha, cultivated in Japan from shade-grown tencha leaves, which produces a higher nutritional value, a sweeter, brighter taste and a creamy, silkier texture than the lower-grade sencha. Our matcha is ceremonial grade, the highest quality available. Hand-picked and stone-ground from the youngest tea leaves (with stems and veins removed), its vibrant green color, delicate taste and extremely fine texture makes culinary and other lower grades of matcha turn green with envy. Finally, we package our matcha in a violet glass jar, to preserve its freshness and maximum potency.
Ways to Enjoy
Melt 1 tablespoon of Viva Nilotica Shea Butter, 1 tablespoon of beeswax pellets and 2 tablespoons of Viva Naturals Sweet Almond Oil over a pan of boiling water, mixing well until melted. Remove from heat. Quickly stir in ½ teaspoon of Viva Organic Matcha Powder and 10 drops of Viva Bergamot or Peppermint essential oil before mixture sets. Transfer to a tin or tube and let cool for an hour.
Relax and rejuvenate at the same time. Add 1 cup of epsom salt, 3 tablespoons of Viva Naturals Organic Matcha Powder and 4 drops of Viva Naturals Peppermint Essential Oil to your bath water. Be aware that matcha residue will make your bathtub look green. Simply rinse and wipe with a cloth after.
Soften 2 teaspoons of Viva Extra Virgin Coconut Oil and mix into 1/2 teaspoon of Viva Naturals Organic Matcha. Refrigerate until it solidifies, and apply after it cools. Allow it to soak for several minutes and steam off with a warm wash cloth.
For an antioxidant-rich skin smoother, combine 1 cup of organic cane sugar (brown or white is fine), 2 teaspoons of Viva Naturals Organic Matcha and 4 teaspoons of your favorite Viva carrier oil (jojoba, sweet almond or fractionated coconut) in a bowl or mason jar, and stir to mix well. Store covered in a cool, dark place.
