Matcha – The superfood in our Fresh Mints

Matcha – The superfood in our Fresh Mints

Only a few years ago Matcha became very popular but that green tea is actually nothing new. Matcha has already been the focus of Japanese tea ceremonies since the 12th century.

With Matcha, only the finest parts of the tea leaves are ground into a fine powder. Stems or veins aren’t used but matcha isn’t only a noble type of tea, it also has some great active ingredients.

Matcha tea contains L-theanine – an amino acid that puts you in a calm and meditative state. So it’s not a coincidence that Buddhist monks have drunk that tea for centuries.

Coffee can often have a stimulating effect – while the caffeine in Matcha will make you feel calmer and more focused. The tea also has a positive effect on long-lasting attention and memory.

Green tea, including matcha, is also one of the best drinks for heart health, can help with weight loss, protect against certain types of cancer and improve physical performance – and these are just a few of the many positive effects of matcha.

It was immediately clear to us: This superfood should not be missing in our Compass Mints. In combination with pomegranate, matcha has even become one of our most popular flavours. Try them now!
