D'Adamo Personalized Nutrition® - Mr. Itaru's Green Tea Blend - A VERY Special Green Tea...
Grown and produced in Japan, Body and Mind Studio® are honoured and delighted to offer this exceptional product, Mr. Itaru’s Green Tea Blend, "Uji Matcha Genmaicha" - 宇治抹茶玄米茶. The secret to getting great health benefits from green tea comes down to a single, simple concept...use the highest quality green tea leaves in order to maximise consumption of health promoting compounds. The search to provide the finest green tea to the patients at D’Adamo Naturopathic Associates culminated with their finding this special green tea. "Genmaicha" literally translates as "brown rice tea". It is a traditional favourite in Japan and combines toasted brown rice with the finest premium green tea leaves.
Mr. Itaru's Green Tea Blend begins with a base of the highest quality green tea leaves carefully processed to maximise the tea's health promoting antioxidants that are 100 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 25 times stronger than Vitamin E. Matcha, with it's deep green colour, is then added for even more antioxidants.
Research has shown that green tea may boost immunity, promote healthy intestinal function and normalise the workings of the cardiovascular (circulatory) system. This delicious tea incorporates toasted brown rice to give it a full, smooth texture.
The history of green tea in Japan begins with the introduction of tea by Zen Buddhist monks in the 9th century. Because of its relative scarcity, only monks, members of the imperial court, and eventually, wealthy landowners were able to enjoy this prized beverage. The famous Japanese "Tea Ceremonies" evolved as a means of sharing this exclusive beverage. In the 18th century, novel processing and growing methods resulted in the introduction of green tea and its spread into all corners of Japanese society.
Green tea is actually the same plant as its more well-known cousin black tea; however, special processing retains a far greater antioxidant profile in green tea leaves, resulting in a far and away superior beverage for supporting health.
Mr. Itaru's Green Tea Blend has been carefully formulated in Uji, Kyoto, Japan and blends toasted brown rice with the finest premium green tea leaves. Numerous scientific studies now document the tremendous health benefits of drinking green tea.
When making green tea it is not necessary or desirable to use boiling water. Moderately warm to hot water is best. Tea leaves should be placed in the water for about 30 seconds (45 seconds at the longest) and removed. Superior quality green tea should look light green when prepared in this manner.
Ingredients: Green Tea, Roasted Brown Rice.
