matcha tea benefitsIt is interesting to note that Japanese Zen Buddhists have used matcha tea benefits for hundreds of years, which includes helping them to meditate. In fact, the tea ceremony has been a sacred Japanese ritual for more than 800 years. The four treasured principles of the Japanese tea ceremony are:

* Wa (harmony)
* kei (respect)
* sei (purity)
* jaku (tranquility).

The fact that Living Qi matcha tea doesn’t cause the jittery effects of caffeine but makes the mind alert and the body at ease makes it the perfect partner for any work related activity or creative endeavor.

Research on Theanine, a major ingredient in matcha, has shown that it puts the brain in alpha state.
