Matcha Powder NZ

NZ Protein's Matcha Green Tea is matcha powder - a metabolism boosting, fat burning superfood and powerful antioxidant.

Matcha is reported to have the nutritional value of up to 10 cups of regular green tea and up to 137 times more antioxidants than regular green tea.

Matcha literally means "powdered tea." With matcha green tea, you’re drinking the actual leaves, which have been dried and then stone ground into a fine powder.

To make matcha tea, plants are covered with shade cloths before they’re harvested. This increases chlorophyll content and creates a vibrant green colour that's rich in antioxidants.

Because matcha is made from high-quality tea, and the whole leaves are ingested, it’s a more potent source of nutrients than regular green tea.

Benefits

Matcha contains a unique and potent class of antioxidant known as catechins. Among antioxidants, catechins are the most beneficial as they may offer protection against heart disease and cancer, and may be beneficial for blood sugar regulation, blood pressure reduction, and anti-aging.

One specific catechin called Epigallocatechin Gallate (EGCg) makes up 60% of the catechins in matcha. Of all the antioxidants, EGCg is the most widely recognised for its metabolism boosting and cancer fighting properties.

EGCg and other catechins counteract the effects of free radicals from the likes of pollution, UV rays, radiation, and chemicals, which can lead to cell and DNA damage.

Matcha contains over 100 times more EGCg than any other tea on the market.

Directions

Mix 2 grams (1/2 teaspoon) in with your protein shake or smoothie to give it a superfood kick. It can be used as an ingredient in both sweet and savory dishes, in everything from matcha muffins, brownies and puddings, to matcha soup, stir frys, and even matcha guacamole!

It can also be made into tea by adding hot water and whisking it until frothy.

Easy to mix into liquids or yoghurt. Large size so it'll last me more than a month. Overall great product and would recommend. After using this product 1 to 2 times daily (along with maintaining a balanced diet) I have definitely noticed better digestion too, which is awesome

I am not a tea drinker. But when I was offered a cup of Matcha Green Tea I was absolutely amazed at the taste. I am now a Matcha Green Tea fan. My opinion is that it is the best tea on the market.

Review by: Leon on Mon, Jun 14, 2021 1:24 PM
I've recently added Matcha green tea to my daily routine. I have it as a hot tea, or add it to smoothies. While I'm still getting 'used' to the flavour as a tea, I love the boost it gives me and how I feel after having it. It's replaced one of my morning coffees. I'll definitely purchase it again, and highly recommend it.
Review by: Megan on Thu, May 6, 2021 6:40 AM
Great matcha, I have it everyday! Fast overnight shipping. I will definitely buy again very soon!
Review by: lea on Tue, Feb 16, 2021 6:47 AM

First time buying this, so far so good! Tastes good but definitely stick to the 2g for 1 cup recommendation as it's really strong and could make you sick otherwise haha.

Loving this to add to my shakes, another great product from NZ protein
Review by: Natalie on Wed, May 20, 2020 7:48 AM
Love this product, not too over powering with the matcha flavour. Added it to my porridge, will try it in baking and smoothies.
Review by: Pamela on Wed, May 6, 2020 9:49 AM
Knew very little about matcha. Tried and like it. Mental clarity. I mix it with beetroot.
Review by: Anonymous on Mon, Nov 18, 2019 11:09 PM
needs to be a higher grade and needs to be powdered so that there is no sediment happening. Try to am for ceremonial grade and state the exact elements and use. It was really bitter can?t wait to test it in a recipe to test this properly. NZPROTEIN REPLY: WE'RE A PROTEIN COMPANY, NOT A FINE TEA COMPANY. IT HAS THE SAME NUTRITIONAL VALUE BUT IT'S FOR PROTEIN BASED SMOOTHIES AT FAR LESS COST
Review by: Anonymous on Tue, Sep 10, 2019 12:13 AM
Brilliant, love it. Will buy again
Review by: Kate on Wed, Sep 4, 2019 2:18 AM
