What are the benefits of Matcha Green Tea, and when should I drink it?

Matcha green tea is a type of Japanese green tea that has become increasingly popular due to its potential health benefits. 

First, a brief history lesson:

During the Meiji era from 1868 to 1912, the Japanese people transitioned from a feudal to a modern, industrialized society. The changes were profound and marked by new philosophical, political and aesthetic ideals. Everything from foreign policy to social structures and the economy were affected.

At this time, tea production became popular in Kagoshima, the capitol of Kagoshima Prefecture, located in the southwestern tip of Kyushu. This region quickly became the biggest exporter of Japanese teas, as its climate was well suited for farming and production. Today, the green tea produced in Kagoshima is renowned across the globe, and it's where Buddha Teas source all their Japanese Teas.

When should I drink it?

When to drink matcha and how often depends on individual preferences and health goals. It is generally recommended to consume matcha in moderation, as it does contain caffeine. For most people, drinking 1-2 cups of matcha per day is considered safe and may provide health benefits. However, it's best to consult with your doctor to determine the appropriate amount of matcha for you based on your individual health needs and concerns. Additionally, matcha can be consumed in various forms, such as in a latte or smoothie, or as an ingredient in baked goods or desserts.
