up or in the evening, thanks to the calming
qualities of L-Theanine (an amino acid
found exclusively in teas from camellia
sinensis). It can be enjoyed hot or cold - the
latter makes for a refreshing summer treat.

The secrets of matcha tea come from the
preparation. While it's made from the
same plant as other teas, the process is
markedly different.
Instead of the camellia leaves being
steamed, matcha is made only from the
fresh leaf tips. The new leaf shoots appear
until they are picked and the plants are
kept in the shade, which boosts the
content of chlorophyll and other nutrients.
Once the best leaves are picked, they are
steamed, air-dried, and ground into a fine
powder. Now you just need to discover
which is your favourite Pukka matcha tea.
