One serving of matcha is nutritionally equivalent to 10 cups of regularly brewed green tea.
Why is matcha so packed with nutrients? Simple - because you are consuming the entire tea leaf. Depending on the variety and preparation of brewed tea, you'll get at best 10-20% of the nutrient content (the rest goes in the trash when you throw away the steeped leaves). With matcha, you are getting 100% of the antioxidants, amino acids, chlorophyll, fiber, and other vitamins contained in the green tea leaves.
