For those of you unfamiliar with matcha green tea, it is a prized, emerald coloured tea powder produced from the hand picked, steamed and stone-ground leaves of Camellia Sinensis, the common green tea plant. This laborious method of production results in a fine powder full of immune boosting catechins and antioxidants, that is ready to whisk into a delicate, creamy and energising drink.
Bare Blends’ organic Japanese matcha is grown in Kyoto, Japan. Matcha is naturally high in health-promoting tea catechins, chlorophyll and amino acids. It's great for boosting your metabolism, enhancing concentration, and reducing stress. Matcha is so full of antioxidants that it's been deemed the anti-aging tea.
Matcha also helps to oxidise fat stores within the body to promote weight loss. Catechins also help to trigger the release of fat from fat cells and helps speed the liver’s capacity for turning fat into energy.
Paired with our premium whey protein isolate and organic vanilla beans, this blend is one delicious and versatile protein powder that adds a green matcha-y colour to any recipe and an earthy, subtle green-tea flavour.
Energising and delicious, our Japanese Matcha WPI is full of weight-regulating green tea catechins and important amino acids. It makes the perfect protein shake or smoothie to kick off the day, or refuel after a workout. Ideal for post-exercise due to its fast absorption rate, this blend will greatly improve recovery time in between training sessions, and provide your muscles with the nutrients they need after a workout.
