When you drink the imperial ‘Kotobuki’ tea superfood you drink the whole leaf and get more ORAC and energy
You can blend Kotobuki Matcha, Earl Grey and Rooibos in warm water, milk, fruit juices or cereal drinks - just stir well and enjoy. If you'd like to know how to ceremonially prepare Matcha, see our website www.noble-house.tk. You can also use the Kotobuki tea in a wide array of dishes or to enrich your meals. But it's just as delicious on its own as an imperial tea.
'The region where the tea is grown and the length of time the leaves are steamed are determining factors when it comes to the quality of the matcha. A great many matchas - often of poor quality - are sold. Cheap matcha could never be good matcha, as it is often oxidised and non-organic. Amanprana Kotobuki Matcha is of the best possible quality.' Ann Van Steenkiste, tea sommelier, Belgium.

Imperial Kotobuki tea superfood for eternal vitality

Amanprana's imperial Kotobuki was inspired by the unique traditional Japanese Matcha ceremony as it has been performed by Zen Buddhists for centuries. We created three delicious Kotobuki teas: Matcha, Rooibos and Earl Grey. Amanprana Kotobuki tea is made of the whole, young and finest leaves of the Japanese Camellia sinensis (Matcha), Aspalathus linearis from South Africa (Rooibos), and first flush Darjeeling and Assam from India (Earl Grey). The veins are expertly removed and the leaf is slowly ground by granite millstones until it is an ultrafine powder at a rate of just about 40 g = 1.41 oz an hour in order to retain the quality, flavor and nutrients. And so, when you enjoy a pot of Kotobuki tea, remember that it took over an hour to create. Kotobuki means 'long life' in Japanese. Amanprana has specially selected the very best balance between quality, flavor and nutritional value, and the antioxidant level, expressed in ORAC units, is exceptionally high. The polyphenols (including catechins and carotenoids) make up the largest group of protective substances in Kotobuki, while vitamin E, fibre, minerals, tannins, and 15 to 17 types of proteins (including all the essential ones) all contribute to turning Kotobuki into a superfood.

Kotobuki Matcha contains 137 times more EGCG catechins than green tea

In conventional green, Earl Grey and Rooibos tea 85 percent of the nutrients are left in the teabag, but when drinking Amanprana's traditional Kotobuki teas you're drinking the whole leaf, as it were. This means the imperial Kotobuki tea is many times healthier than green tea, as you are consuming a multiple of the nutrients and you are drinking the whole (holistic consumption). And because we strive for the very best quality the taste is utterly sublime. It's quite simply the best.

10 - 15% When you drink green or black tea (left) you only consume the water-soluble 10 to 15 percent of the nutrients, with the rest thrown away. When you drink Kotobuki tea (right) you consume all of the nutrients, being the full 35 percent of water-soluble ones and the full 65 percent of non-water-soluble nutrients. You drink the entire leaf. 65 % + 35 % = 100 % kotobuki
The Kotobuki teas are a blessing to your body and I use all three. Matcha for focus, Earl Grey for enjoyment and Rooibos in the evening. They are of the very best quality, and I should know as I have spent years searching for the ultimate matcha. Kotobuki Matcha is greener, its taste more gentle, its fragrance more sublime and its nutritional value higher. Lisa Burke, certified tea sommelier, Birmingham, UK
