‘The high levels of EGCG (a powerful antioxidant) in matcha are known to help burn fat, reduce stress and prevent diseases like cancer.’
Matcha green tea is packed with antioxidants that act as a shield against free radical damage. Matcha has 137x the anti-oxidant power of regularly brewed green tea! And other studies have shown that regular consumption of matcha can help lower cholesterol and prevent heart disease.
Matcha is also high in fiber, low in caffeine, and contains a small amount of oleic acid, a fat that has been found to keep you feeling full for longer.

4. How do I store my matcha powder?
Store in an airtight container in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight. Since matcha is so pure it easily absorbs other flavors and odors so keep your matcha away from strong-smelling or flavored items.
It is best to use your matcha within 1 month of opening the package for maximum freshness and potency. Unopened packages can be stored in a refrigerator for up to 6 months, but once opened it should be used as quickly as possible.
5. How much caffeine is in Matcha powder?
Matcha contains approximately 35mg of caffeine per gram. In comparison, coffee contains approximately 120-180mg of caffeine per gram. Thus you have to drink about 6x as much Matcha as you would coffee for the same effect.
