Nutritional value green tea versus Kotobuki Matcha

With Kotobuki Matcha you drink the entire leaf, finely ground. With green tea, you only drink the extract, a portion of the water soluble substances. The graphic below allows you to clearly see that drinking Matcha is many times better than drinking green tea. With green tea one only drinks a part of the 30% of water soluble substances. With Matcha you drink 100% of water soluble and 100% of non-water soluble substances. This is more natural and holistic!! One should select Kotobuki Matcha tea above normal green tea because of its abundance of nutrients. Matcha tea contains 10 to 15 times more nutrients than regular green tea and 137 times more EGCG catechins than bags of green tea.
