The Marvels of Matcha Great Tea

Just Matcha green tea powderJust Matcha green tea powder

 

Matcha Green Tea can be safely pronounced one of the most potent superfoods on the market today. Green tea is not new, nor is Matcha – the specially grown, slow ground, whole leaf tea power variety. In the East it has been valued for its potent properties for over a thousand years. Those properties are now proving to be invaluable in combatting the ills plaguing the West – blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, ageing rates, cancer, Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, to name some key health issues.
