The tea ceremony brings the world benefits on two levels — physical and mental. Physically, green tea or matcha has a myriad of health boosters, as it’s full of antioxidants called catechins. Studies show it drops high blood pressure and lowers bad cholesterol. Matcha is also a much cleaner “buzz” than coffee, with smoother energy, more long-lasting, due to the amino acid L-Theanine, which has a sustained calming effect. Mentally, the four spiritual pillars of the tea ceremony are purity, tranquility, respect, and harmony. If we could all reflect upon those concepts for a few minutes each day, the world impact might be immeasurable.
