The Pros & Cons Of Matcha Green Tea


It gives your skin a boost

Matcha tea is packed full of anti-oxidants, and anti-oxidants are great for your skin.

This is because it helps to release all those free radicals that can wreck havoc on our delicate skin.

It can help with weight loss

It is known that green tea, especially matcha is a great way to fight fat within your body.

In fact, there have been studies into the power of green tea, which has found that drinking around 4 cups a day can help your body process fat by as much as 17%.

It improves your brain function

Enjoying match on a regular basis can have a positive effect on your brain, boosting memory and brain function.


You should always be careful with caffeine

Matcha contains caffeine and whilst this can be great for your mind and body, it can have its drawbacks too.

If you drink too much caffeine, or you are sensitive to it, then there are a range of symptoms and side effects that you may feel if you drink matcha tea.

This includes insomnia, loss of appetite and irritation.

It can increase stomach acid

Whilst an increase in stomach acid in itself is not an issue, for those that have peptic ulcers or acid reflux it can be a problem.

These people should avoid drinking green tea on an empty stomach, always drinking it after meals.

They can also try making a matcha latte with dairy milk or add sugar to the tea to help with this problem.


All in all, whilst there are some bad points to drinking matcha tea, on the whole it is a great thing to do.

Not only does it help with your physical and mental wellbeing, but it can also be used in a variety of ways, which makes it easy to incorporate into your daily diet.

If you have stomach problems I’d shy away from sugar in tea and opt for honey.


Thanks for the kind words, Ben. Matcha for that price is likely to taste bitter and be made in China. High-quality matcha tends to be grown in Japan – the home of matcha. No whisk is required, but our electric whisk is excellent if you’re looking to add a nice foam to your matcha.


I’ve recently tried your matcha with lemon for the first time and love it . What is the grading like in regard to cost ? Iv seen some selling at £13 for 200g . Should I be wary if I see this as a long term health benefit ? Also is a whisk required? I found mixing with a spoon was ok, that’s unless I’m Missing something. Thanks.


Hey Randa. We would recommend talking to your health professional about this. We are not in a position to give you medical advice. If they have not heard of matcha tea, I would suggest mentioning green tea.


If I have Crohn disease but dormant I drink matcha tea powder?? As well I have low blood pressure and no high sugar normal or little less would this matcha tea affect me in any way


I have to say that matcha tea is the best I have had and when I have researched there is so many good benefits with green tea for health
