Crucial FOUR’s ceremonial Matcha Green Tea is mountain grown and of connoisseur quality. It’s free of: dairy, gluten, sugar, and GMO’s. Mix one serving in water or juice and enjoy it hot or cold.

Scientific Name: Camellia Sinensis

Crucial FOUR’s ceremonial Organic Matcha Green Tea is mountain grown and of connoisseur quality. With our propriety freeze-dry technology, you can now get the convenience but at no sacrifice to the toxic manufacturing processes that exist in virtually every instant tea/coffee product. Since we remove the water at sub-zero temperatures, we can pick at peak ripeness. This allows us to preserve the energetics and harness the energy at its embryonic state ( As soon as we pick an herb or any foodstuff it starts its path down the road to decomposition. So it’s vital to the process to preserve as soon as one harvest.) With our technology, we can preserve in the most advanced organic fashion allowing us to give you the most potent and convenient product ever!

Matcha Green has been used in traditional Chinese medicine for over 5000 years. Writings from the Tang Dynasty indicate that by 650 AD, tea was cultivated throughout China. It was introduced to Japan in about 600 AD by Buddhist priests returning from study in China.

Polyphenols function as powerful antioxidants. One of the most potent antioxidants found in green tea is Epigallocatechin Gallate. EGCG may help against free radicals that contribute to cancer(1), heart disease, and clogged arteries (2). They are also helpful to burn fat (3) and counteract oxidative stress in the brain that can lead to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s (4).

Weight Management: EGCG inhibits enzymes that break down the hormone norepinephrine. Increasing norepinephrine levels increase the signals that stimulate the body to break down fat – especially visceral fat that builds up around our organs in the abdominal area. Also, caffeine stimulates fat burning by increasing our metabolic rate. The overall effect is weight loss and energy gain. (8) (See also footnotes #3)

Physical and Cognitive Stimulation: Tea contains caffeine, which blocks adenosine receptors and inhibits the effects of adenosine. The caffeine binds to and occupies the adenosine receptor sites. However, caffeine doesn’t slow down the cell’s activity as adenosine would. Instead of slowing down because of the adenosine, cellular metabolism speeds up.

see in coffee. Also, green tea has high levels of rare amino acid, L-theanine.

L’ Theanine increases the activity of GABA, a neurotransmitter which produces anti-anxiety effects and also increases dopamine and alpha waves in the brain. (5) These calming effects result in more stable energy (less “jittery”) than caffeine alone. The proper balance of L-theanine and caffeine promotes faster reaction time, faster numeric working memory, and improved sentence verification accuracy. (6)

L-Theanine can cross the blood-brain barrier to have a direct influence on the brain activity. It enhanced alpha activity and was found to increase the general state of mental alertness and arousal. The combination of caffeine and L-Theanine increased speed and accuracy in attention switching tests and reduced the likelihood of distraction in memory tasks. Researchers in Korea conducted randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies, which showed that L-Theanine improved memory, selective attention, and cognitive alertness (7).

Cognitive Health: Green tea not only increases immediate and short-term brain function but may also protect against neurodegenerative diseases in old age. Catechin compounds in tea may protect neurons, potentially lowering the risk of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. (see endnote 4)

Asthma: Theophylline relaxes smooth muscles and so has made tea a traditional remedy for respiratory illness, including asthma. (9)

Dental Health: Catechins in green tea can inhibit the growth of harmful Streptococcus mutans bacteria in the mouth that cause plaque formation leading to tooth decay. (10)

Diabetes: Green Tea may improve insulin sensitivity and reduction in blood sugar levels to help combat Type II diabetes. (11)

Anti-aging: A study of over 40,000 Japanese adults concluded that those who drank 5 cups or more per day of green tea were significantly able to live longer. A follow up study with 14,000 Japanese between the ages of 65-84 years found that those who drank the most green tea were 76% less likely to die during the six-year period of the study, and there were 31% fewer cardiovascular deaths in women who drank five or more cups of green tea daily compared with those who drank one cup or two.

THE Crucial FOUR DIFFERENCE – MOUNTAIN GROWN

Most commercial tea is grown on large plantations on terraced land (“terrace tea”). This tea gets too much sun to qualify as “matcha.” Matcha green tea is grown with substantial shade as it grows naturally in the mountains where the surrounding trees and the shape of the mountains themselves provide nature’s perfect balance of sunlight and shade along with the biodiversity of nature. Shielding the tea leaves from sunlight increases the accumulation of amino acids vitamins, L-Theanine, and Caffeine.

Less sunlight requires more efficient use of the sun during the process of photosynthesis. This requires higher levels of chlorophyll, which results in the bright green color of “matcha.” Sunlight converts L’Theanine to catechins. Less sunlight creates more L-Theanine. At the same time, less sunlight increases the level of Caffeine. It is this balance of L-Theanine and Caffeine that creates the alert calmness of a modern warrior typical of “matcha.”

RAW MATERIAL SPECIFICATIONS: We start with the highest quality shaded mountain tea. The environment in which the tea is mainly grown determines its quality. Encroachment of industrial toxins such as acid rain has tainted the ancient tea forests of China and other highly industrialized countries. In the mountains of Northern Thailand, far from any cities and in an agricultural-based economy lacking industrial activity, the environment is still pristine.

Weather conditions, rainfall, and time of harvest are critical. Crucial FOUR’s procurement team works with our farmers to harvest under just the right conditions. We harvest only the young shoot (terminal bud) and young top two leaves. The leaves are carefully handpicked to avoid broken leaves and partial flushes that can reduce quality. The young, fresh growth produces the best matcha since they have been exposed to far less sunlight than the mature leaves.

Farm Fresh: The mountains where our tea grows is about 1.5 hours drive from our factory. This is critical, especially in the case of green tea. Tea is very energetic (bioactive), and as soon as it is removed from its life cycle (harvested), it heats up due to enzymatic activity and degrades rapidly. This heat is a reflection of the strength of the enzymes and the high level of energy in the tea leaves. Some botanicals can be frozen and delivered into the freeze-drying process in frozen form since the first step after cleaning is freezing in any case. However, tea leaves should not be frozen and must be delivered farm-fresh into our freeze dryer. This makes the logistics of delivery and processing quite challenging but possible for us due to our location very near to the mountain tea.

Crucial FOUR’s Freeze-Dried Technology: This revolutionary and transitional process preserves the health benefits of the fresh tea in a stable form (dry powder) that is highly bio-active as well as highly bioavailable. It is mostly this process that explains the superior quality and efficacy of our matcha green tea. Tea is a complex living organism
where higher levels of intelligence operate through patterns of association and encoded information in the structure and function of the components.

Analysis of the individual components and chemistry per se is not an incorrect analytical system but must exist together with and complement the more holistic approach where we come to understand how the plant’s activity moves through the body with higher levels of interaction and organization. Order, information, programming, and communication are essential ingredients of every biological system, and our proprietary freeze dryers are the best method to keep this all intact

All teas come from the same plant – Camellia sinensis. Herbal teas are not truly “tea, but more accurately described as “herbal infusions.” The differences between matcha, black (oolgon), white tea, and green tea primarily depend on how the tea leaves are grown and processed. In general, the less the tea is processed, the stronger are the polyphenols and nature’s benefits. Matcha green tea is made by drying and grinding fresh green tea leaves. Our activated matcha green tea is produced without exposure to heat and with a minimal need for mechanical grinding. In our freeze dryer, the tea falls into small porous particles between the cell walls preserving the cellular structure and extracellular matrix.

Clean energy

Quality product, I’ll throw it in a smoothie if I’m making one or I’ll just mix it in water and drink it on the way out. Better than coffee tho I drink that too.

Great taste, not fine enough

I usually buy my matcha from Ippodo Tea but I thought I’d give Crucial Four’s a try as the price point was a bit more reasonable. The taste was good, not overly grassy with a bit of sweetness to it. The only drawback to this product is it is NOT fine enough. Matcha should be a very very fine powder that easily dissolves in water and leaves little to no sediment when your cup is finished, this was very gritty and did not dissolve fully in the water. If this is your first matcha product it shouldn’t really make much of a difference, it’ll taste really good and it’s high quality from a taste and organic standpoint; if you’re used to high quality Japanese matcha this will be a step down in terms of ability to make a small cup with no sediment.
