HISTORY OF MATCHA: ORIGINATING IN CHINA, MASTERED BY THE JAPANESE
In the 12th century, Japanese monk Myōan Eisai, returned back from China and introduced Zen Buddhism to Japanese culture.
While Eisai was in China, he was also fascinated with a bright Green drink that accompanied the practices of Chinese Zen Buddhists. This drink that was discovered is now known today as Matcha.
Eisai became eager to introduce both the practice of Zen Buddhism and Matcha to Japanese culture. He realised that the Zen monks in China benefited from Matcha; it kept them alert and focused during meditation and it was associated with a multitude of health benefits that we now have scientific evidence on.
