Amazing new research on tea plants shows that matcha tea leaves, derived from the same plant as green tea, contain 10 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.
Recent research has revealed amazing things Benefits of Green Tea and facts about matcha tea, a plant derivative called camellia sinensis. Incidentally, green tea is also made from the same plant. However, according to studies, the amount of antioxidants per serving varies significantly in both types of tea. According to the researchers of the new study, matcha tea contains about 10 times more antioxidants per serving than regular green tea.
According to research, the reason for this amazing variance between derivatives of the same plant is due to the differences in the techniques used to cultivate the plants. Green tea is grown and cultivated under direct sunlight, but matcha tea is grown in the shade for several weeks before harvest. Green tea leaves develop a pale green with a brownish tinge, but matcha tea leaves develop a vivid green color. The chlorophyll content in the leaves increases by growing in the shaded area. The same high chlorophyll content gives matcha tea its bright green color.
Matcha as an edible plant has its origins in Japan. Historically, it was consumed exclusively by the region’s nobility, Buddhist monks, and samurai. In fact, the samurai would take it before battles as an energy-boosting drink, believed to give them hours of stamina. It has now been scientifically proven that, unlike coffee, the effects of ingestion can last up to six hours without crashing. It is not for nothing that matcha is now called the new superfood.
This instant boost of energy comes from the high levels of antioxidants in matcha, which are at least fourteen times higher than some fruits like wild blueberries and ten times higher than traditional green tea. It also contains all of the other nutritional benefits of traditional greens, but in higher concentrations. Most notable are EGCG levels, which may help improve heart health, prevent obesity, prevent cancer, Alzheimer’s and type 2 diabetes; L-theanine, an amino acid found in this tea, can also help with mental alertness.
The health benefits of green tea over other traditional beverages cannot be discounted. However, opting for matcha tea can help further enhance the traditional benefits of green tea.

According to the study, matcha tea consumers report a significant and noticeable improvement in their routine physical energy levels, mental agility, and even skin condition. The benefits are easy to see in people who drink matcha every day. It can be used in drinks or as an ingredient in everyday meals or desserts. Rather than being overpowering or bitter, quality tea has an earthy, fragrant flavor that complements the other flavors it is used with.
To protect the antioxidants, the traditional method of making matcha is to whisk it with hot, but not boiling, water. However, as it has become a more accessible and adaptable ingredient, it is now available in food-grade variants with a more concentrated and intense flavor.
