Matcha Powder Caffeine Content

Because matcha powder is made from finely ground tealeaves, the caffeine content is slightly higher than that found in full leaf or bagged green tea. On average, matcha powder contains less than half the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee.

Matcha Powder Health Benefits

Matcha powder has one of the highest levels of antioxidants of all known superfoods. In fact, a single cup of matcha green tea has more than 5x the antioxidants of blueberries.   Matcha is also known for its ability to create a calm alertness, thanks to its high levels of L-Theanine. Japanese samurai used to drink matcha green tea before going into battle due, in order to take advantage of the tea’s energizing properties.

How to Steep Matcha Powder

To prepare matcha, first fill a kettle with fresh, filtered water and heat to just short of boiling. Then, take out your matcha tools, and add one teaspoon of matcha powder to bowl or cup, and pour in 6 ounces of steaming water. Using a tea whisk or a hand frother, blend for one to two minutes until the matcha becomes frothy.   You may wish to experiment with the quantities of matcha powder and water to find your preferred strength.
