Mayella ® Meta Matcha - Product Description
Mayella ® Meta Matcha
Our Meta Matcha is an infusion of Certified Organic Camellia Sinensis whole leaf – harvested, carefully dried then powdered to make a remedial tea experience where every sip is pure bliss.
Green tea is a traditional tea enjoyed daily by millions around the world. The one plant, Camellia Sinensis, provides the leaf for green, black or white teas. The method of farming, harvesting, drying, preparing the leaf decides what tea is the end result. The distinctive Matcha tea is unique in that the whole aged and dried leaf is ground into a powdered form and used in this form for drinking and eating, rather than the brewed leaf in water. As a whole leaf, Mayella ® Meta Matcha delivers a concentrate of nutrients with quite a distinctive taste.
For preparation of Matcha tea, the plant is covered with shade cloth when growing a few weeks prior to harvest to encourage the plants to shoot larger, thinner leaves with more flavour. When ready, the youngest, smaller leaves are harvested by hand, lightly steamed then dried to prevent fermentation, packed in bales and cold stored to age and deepen the flavour, much like wine!
Matcha meaning “powdered tea” is nutrient dense with its own smoother green tea flavour and multitude of health giving properties. Up to 10 times the nutritional and antioxidant value of standard green tea. Naturally high levels of caffeine and amino acids together create balanced energy and an alert calm. Particularly rich in catechin polyphenols boosting immunity and sense of wellbeing.

The technique of grinding tea by stone to a powder for consumption was first used in China for centuries. A Japanese Zen priest who spent time in China, brought the tradition to Japan in 1191, taking tea seeds and the knowledge of how to grow, process and drink the tea with him. With Korea embracing the methodology of Matcha as a tea to be enjoyed and appreciated also. Eventually each culture evolving over time, their own tradition of farming methods, ceremony and enjoyment of this delightfully refreshing and energising tea.
