The Story of Green Tea House Ireland

Green Tea House Ireland Matcha Green Tea

My name is Martin Gregory, founder of Green Tea House Ireland. When I first stumbled across Matcha green tea in Australia, I didn’t know what I had stumbled on.

Iwasaki was the man that introduced me to this world in. When I walked into his shop there was an amazing array of teaware, teas, noren and snacks.

He walked me through the ceremony and how it is performed in Japan and the history behind it. He told me Uji, in Japan, was one of the first places tea was grown, where my tea is now imported from, and how it goes from strength to strength there and abroad.

My first bowl of Japanese Matcha I wasn’t sure what to expect: was it going to be like bagged green tea or completely different? He boiled the water to about 80c, sieved the Matcha into a finely decorated Japanese bowl, poured the water in, with me captivated. This is not how you make tea in Ireland, that’s for sure.

He was explaining the history as this was happening with me taking it all in. Next was the whisking and cooling down, the anticipation of what this would be like. I took my first sip and was instantly hooked. The flavour of the tea is beautiful, textured and I think this is enhanced by the ceremonial aspect.

I instantly taught this would be a good seller In Ireland and Europe and when I got back I seen it was starting to take off and with my new found love of Japanese Matcha I am now bringing it to the people of Ireland and beyond.

Only the best quality Matcha and green tea sourced directly from local tea farms in Uji Kyoto Japan for sale in Ireland and the UK.

Why Matcha?

Because Matcha is the ultimate superfood! Matcha is made by grinding up tea leaves, you ingest the entire leaf when you drink it, which means 100% of the nutrients inside the leaf is ingested. Matcha is packed full of antioxidants including EGCG and L-Theanine, powerful compounds which have been proven to speed up your metabolism and aid the prevention of diseases. The amount of antioxidants inside a cup of Matcha is astounding. Matcha contains 137x more antioxidants and nutrition than a cup of green tea.

ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) is a unit of measurement for antioxidants in food. Matcha has the highest ORAC rating of these superfoods.

Here an antioxidant, there an antioxidant, antioxidants everywhere… That is because gram for gram Matcha green tea has the most antioxidants of any foodstuff. Matcha has over 500% more antioxidants than Goji berries which are considered a super food and 10 times more nutritional potency than traditional brewed green tea.

Japanese Matcha green tea is also known to improve cognitive function, boost your mood and enhance concentration which is why it is used ceremonially in Japan.

1.5 grams of Matcha is approximately equal to 130g of strawberries, 160g of spinach and 210g of Brussel sprouts. You can also read more about the full benefits here.
