Matcha

“MAH-cha” (Camelia sinensis)
Matcha is one of nature’s most powerful sources of vitality and wellness. Consumed as a whole food, matcha is a brilliant green powder made by stone-grinding the finest green tea leaves. It is the purest form of healthy tea.

Matcha History

In the 12th century, a Japanese Buddhist Monk named Eisai returned to Japan from China with green tea seeds. The seeds were planted on the grounds of his temple near Kyoto. Eisai had discovered that drinking matcha improved his Zen meditation by producing a state of calm alertness. As the benefits of matcha became more widely understood, it became the basis for the sophisticated art of the Japanese Tea Ceremony. The Japanese monks developed their own method of cultivating the plant which is still used today. Four weeks before harvest the plants are covered and grown under shade. This results in a higher concentration of the tea’s nutritional properties.

Rooibos History

About 150 miles north of Cape Town sit the Cederberg Mountains, a rugged sandstone range weathered by time. For 28,000 years the area has been home to the San and Khoisan people, nomadic tribes who decorated the caves and overhangs with paintings of elephants, antelopes, and hunters. Among these mountains, and nowhere else on earth, grows a small shrub with needle-like leaves prized by the natives for its medicinal properties and cultivated for a variety of ailments. During the summer months, the shrub is harvested and the leaves are mashed with mallets. The piles are left to ferment and dry in the hot sun, turning the green leaves a reddish hue. In homage to its color, the natives called it Rooibos, which means Red Bush.
