According to TechSci Research report, “Matcha Market – Global Industry Size, Share, Trends, Competition, Opportunity, and Forecast, 2017-2027F” The global matcha market is expected to grow at steady rate during the forecast period. Green tea in the form of granules called matcha originates in China and Japan. Green tea, which is high antioxidants, and smoothies and baking use matcha powder. Matcha is becoming increasingly popular as a food color and flavoring in meals. Tea leaves grown in the shade are used to make matcha tea. Due to the numerous health advantages of matcha tea, it is gaining popularity among consumers all over the world. Matcha tea is healthier for those concerned about their health because it has 137 percent more antioxidant properties than other types of tea. The high antioxidant content of matcha tea helps to speed up metabolism and burn more calories.
Matcha has become popular in the food and beverage industries of many non-native regions and nations due mainly to its exotic preparation methods and aromatic appeal. Tencha, or shade-ground tea leaves, are ground into a fine powder using granite stone mills to create matcha. Matcha tea was a regional brew that few people outside of Japan had ever heard of a few decades ago. However, due to the rapid development of food tourism, matcha has established itself as a respected variety of tea in many Asian nations.
The global matcha market offers incredible opportunities to manufacturers due to the availability of matcha leaves in packaged form. Matcha has high levels of anti-inflammatory and antioxidant compounds. It offers excellent potential health benefits to consumers due to its high catechin content. It also supports the body's efforts to stay healthy and fend off disease if consumed frequently.
