A Short History of Matcha

The history of matcha is believed to date all the way back to 7th century China. Green tea was steamed and pressed into blocks to make it easier to transport. The tea leaves were then crushed and mixed with water and a little bit of salt. However, it wasn’t until the 12th century that matcha as we know it came into being. The preparation was popularized by a Japanese monk named Eisai, who was studying Buddhism in China. When Eisai returned to Japan, he brought the tea preparation techniques he learned along with him. This was picked up in the 16th century by two monks named Murata Juko and Sen-no-Rikyu.

Matcha is believed to have been introduced to the United States by Japanese grocery stores in Los Angeles. The US interest in matcha might have started in LA but matcha has gone mainstream. These days you can find it in nearly any city grocery store, or at your local coffee shop in the form of a foamy light green latte.

Matcha’s Health Benefits

  • Matcha is packed with antioxidants. It even has more antioxidants than other types of green tea because matcha powder contains the whole leaf. Scientists estimate that matcha powder has more than 100 times the amount of antioxidants than regular green tea bags. [1]
  • Some studies have found that matcha may be beneficial for liver health, particularly in managing and preventing liver damage. [2]
  • There is also evidence that matcha may improve brain function, including memory, reaction time, and attention. Some scientists have suggested that these effects are due to the combination of caffeine and the compound L-theanine, which helps prevent the crash associated with caffeine without negatively impacting its positive effects. [3, 4]
