TERRANOVA Matcha Green Tea contains 100% Grade AAA Matcha Green Tea (Ceremonial Grade) from gardens located in remote China.
Like green tea, matcha comes from the Camellia sinensis plant however, it’s grown differently and has a unique nutrient profile. Farmers grow matcha by covering their tea plants 20–30 days before harvest to avoid direct sunlight. This increases chlorophyll production, boosts the amino acid content, and gives the plant a darker green hue. Once the tea leaves are harvested, the stems and veins are removed and the leaves are ground up into a fine powder known as matcha.
Matcha, like other green teas, contains a class of antioxidants called catechins. It is particularly high in a catechin called EGCG (epigallocatechin gallate) which is thought to reduce inflammation, aid weight loss, and help prevent heart and brain disease.
Terranova offers broad-spectrum supplements and provides intensely synergistic nutritional and botanical formulations, suitable for vegans and vegetarians.
