Akira Organic Ceremonial Matcha

Akira Organic Ceremonial Matcha

Regular price $32.50 Sale

The Akira Organic Ceremonial Matcha from Matcha Konomi is an organic ceremonial grade Matcha, perfect for sipping as a tea, making frozen lattes adding to your salad or the way I enjoy it best, by adding to my daily serving of Greek yogurt. 

Akira Matcha has a creamy, mild, and a pleasantly vegetal flavor. This Matcha does not need to be sifted, and can be easily whisked or shaken without leaving clumps.

Here are some of the benefits of Matcha.  

  1. Matcha is known to enhance calm and focus, due to it richness in the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine is believed to promote alpha waves in the brain, and possibly raise the levels of Dopamine, Serotonin and GABA (a cognitive enhancing agent), and those are neurotransmitters that play a very important role in determining mood and mental state. This is the reason why L-theanine is believed to have the ability to reduce stress, boost mood, and get you closer to that sense of cognitive synergy. The combined effect of L-theanine and caffeine is believed to be responsible for what is called the "calming focus" that is often described by Matcha drinkers.
  2. Drinking Matcha green tea is believed to boost metabolism and help the body burn calories & fat faster than average. Studies show consuming Matcha tea before exercise will help burn more fat than without.
  3. Matcha has significantly less caffeine than coffee (around 34mg per serving of Matcha compared to 90-200mg per serving of regular coffee), but the caffeine in Matcha is believed to be slowly absorbed into the body producing long lasting energy (up to 4-6 hours) with less likelihood of jitters.
  4. Matcha contains significantly more antioxidants than regular green tea, and more antioxidants than any "super-food".
