Matcha and Green tea are getting more and more popular for its health benefit and amazing flavour.

A bowl of Matcha tea contains five times more antidioxidants than raw fruits and green veggies.

Both help digesting system in the body and boost metabolism.
What is the difference between Matcha and Green tea.
- Matcha is powdered "Tencha碾茶" which grow avoiding direct sun light. Tea leaves get steamed and dried then powdered.
Green tea is "Sencha煎茶" which grow under sun light.
Matcha contains more L-Theanine than Green tea as its concentrated.
So both have lots of health benefit BUT it doesn't mean they cure illness and to get the best result, moderate intake is must. Around 3g a day. Just be careful as both contain cafein.
