Especially, the highly abundant naturally occurring catechin (an antioxidant compound) epigallocatechin-3-gallate, better known as EGCG.

Thea Tip : 1/2 tsp can last you 2-3 cups of Matcha as it will settle to the bottom of your cup/mug if you leave it for 20 minutes. Thea Organics recommend 1/2tsp of Matcha in a day, which we find provides a great slow release of energy for an extended period of time.
