Matcha, a type of green tea made from grinding young leaves, has become quite popular throughout the U.S. over the last few years. But while this drink may be trendy (thanks, in part, to its distinctive hue), it has a long history in Japanese culture and even in traditional medicine.
Because matcha is made from the leaves that are normally discarded during the tea-making process, it’s thought that the health benefits matcha provides are substantial. Matcha naturally contains high levels of an antioxidant called catechins, which may help with weight management, blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and management of various health conditions. It’s also thought that matcha can promote liver health, support brain function, boost immunity, and enhance metabolism.
White Dragon Matcha is a special blend of green tea sourced in Japan. Inspired by a pilgrimage taken to the God Dragon Temple, this tea is imbued with the spirit of power and mysticism associated with Dragon Mythology and that journey taken to the temple. Naturally farmed to minimize human impact and to integrate agriculture into the indigenous environment, White Dragon Matcha is focused on quality, harmony, and the natural earth.
