Best Matcha Green Tea | Grace & Green

Have you ever felt that Japanese Green Tea is bitter or astringent and therefore hard to appreciate? Japanese Green Tea contains catechins, a group of polyphenols that give tea a bitter and astringent taste.

There is also caffeine, which is a bitter substance and all these cause the tea to appear bitter and astringent.

Although catechin has these properties, it is also noted for its preventive effects on lifestyle related diseases and for numerous other health benefits.
