Matcha Loose Leaf Tea
The English Tea Store is stoked to offer you our wide array of Matcha loose leaf tea. Filled with antioxidants to help your body perform its best, come see what all the fuss has been about over the last couple centuries in Southeast Asia. Most of the world's Matcha tea is grown in Japan and has been consumed by Buddhist and Japanese monks for many years to help them get into the flow state and meditate. It has also been used as just an overall health drink. To where green tea is merely steeped, matcha loose leaf is consumed directly, giving you all the good stuff that the Camellia sinensis or "tea plant" has to offer! This includes a bunch of catechins, plant-based compounds that act as antioxidants to neutralize free radicals in the body that can cause illness and cellular damage. As well as a delightful combination of caffeine and theanine, an amino acid within the "tea plant," that gives you a longer lasting, no jitters energy boost. These two together will put you into a wonderful state of relaxed alertness ready to take on whatever the day may try to throw at you.
We got all sorts of flavors of matcha loose leaf tea to choose from. Whether you are an Earl Grey, Hibiscus, Vanilla, Mango or traditional green tea drinker, you are bound to find your taste and what suits you.
And if you are not sure if you are all about this hippy dippy tea talk, we have got sampler sizes available as well.
