This January at The Lichfield Tea Company we are working hard to develop healthy habits that we can easily incorporate in to our lives to support our general health and wellbeing. With that in mind, this week we are focusing on the first of our four “January Specials” the amazing Organic Matcha Ujicha.
Our premium Japanese matcha green tea powder is organically grown in Uji, Kyoto in Western Japan, the birthplace of Japanese matcha tea tradition. Made from the nutrient-rich young leaves picked from the tips of shade-grown Camellia sinensis plants, Matcha Green Tea is steamed, stemmed, and de-veined before being stone-ground into very fine powder.
Matcha is considered to be one of the most powerful superfoods on the market today and a simple and delicious way to add powerful health benefits to your everyday diet.

Matcha is an antioxidant powerhouse. Antioxidants are the body’s defence agents. They are chemical compounds that prevent aging and chronic diseases. Put simply, the more you have, the better equipped your body is in the fight against infections and disease.
Not bad for a cup of tea! So, why not pop in and see us, sit back, relax, and enjoy a delicious bowl of hot Matcha, a matcha latte or a gorgeous white chocolate and matcha blondie.
