Japanese green tea (matcha) is ground to a powder. Matcha is made from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis tea plant. What makes matcha so special is the way the green tea is made. The different ways in which the leaves of the green tea are treated, determine the quality of the tea. Only a small number of elite tea farmers have the ability to produce high quality matcha. The matcha in TeaTox is of the highest quality with superior nutritional value and numerous therapeutic properties.
