Matcha grönt te, superfood packat med antioxidanter

Just nu är Matcha-te en stor hype i hälsomatskretsar. Egentligen rätt konstigt att det tog till 2000-talet innan vi i västvärlden fick upp ögonen för den här uråldriga drycken. Ursprungligen från Kina, men mest känt som det te som tratiditionellt används i de japanska tecermonierna. Till skillnad från vanligt grönt te, som man brygger på torkade blad, så är Matcha ett finfördelat pulver som vispas till en skummande dryck. Matcha-te är mer koncentrerat och har därför en högre halt av alla nyttiga antioxidanter och aminosyror som återfinns i grönt te. Matcha-te sägs kunna påverka de sk alpha-vågorna i hjärnan och ge en upppiggande men ändå rogivande effekt, till skillnad från kaffe som ger en mer ojämn uppåt-effekt. Tack vare sin pulverform används Matcha ofta i smoothies, kakor, godis och andra desserter där det ger en kraftigt grön och vacker färg. (Recept hittar du i mängder t ex här på Pinterest)

Välj rätt kvalitet från rätt område.

Viktigt att tänka på när man köper Matcha är att välja ett te av rätt kvalitet (grade) och från rätt område. Utan bättre vetande köpte jag mitt första Matcha från Shizuoka och även om det var ekologiskt så finns risken (menar vissa) att teet från den här regionen kan vara förorenat av radioaktivitet från kärnkraftsolyckan i Fuskushima. Väljer man däremot en av de finare Matcha-teerna från det anrika området Uij/Kyoto skulle det enligt samma källor inte vara något problem.

Hur Matcha odlas och tillverkas

Tesorten som används för att odla det som sen blir Matcha-te kallas Tencha. I japan har de odlats åtminstone sedan 1100-talet. Precis som när det gäller vinodling så ger olika områden och tencha-sorter sin speciella karaktär åt Matcha. En månad före skörd (ungefär i mitten av april) täcks och skuggas tebuskarna med ett red screen. Ca tio dagar senare skuggas buskarna ytterligare för att stänga ute än mer solljus. På så sätt växer de nya skotten sig tunna och rangliga när de sträcker sig mot solen. En metod som inte bara fyller bladen med extra mycket klorofyll och ger dem en kraftigt grön färg, utan även dämpar kärvheten i teet. Från tidigt till mitten av maj plockas sen bladen. First flush, utgörs av de fina och känsliga bladskotten som plockas för hand. De fraktas omedelbart till en anläggning för att genomgå en tidskrävande process. Bladen ångas först kraftigt för att stoppa en jäsningsprocess. Det torkas sen i omgångar i en särskild ugn, kallad Hoiro. Mellan torkomgångarna hålls tebladen i en kyl. Bladnerv och skaft avlägsnas och bladen skärs i jämnstora bitar under den här processen. Olika tenchasorter blandas för att ge Matcha-teet sin önskade karaktär. Slutligen mals de torkade tebladen till ett fint grönt pulver.

Viktigt att tänka på när det gäller Matcha

  • Välj rätt kvalitet, finns i många klasser, allt från food grade (ingredient grade), top grade eller ceremony grade – ju finare ju dyrare
  • Välj rätt område Uji/Kyoto och Nishio rankas som bland de bästa
  • Färgen, ska vara krafigt smaragdgrön
  • Förvaras väl tillslutet och gärna i kylskåp tills det öppnas. Därefter mörkt och svalt (men inte i kylskåp som efter öppnandet kan fuktskada teet)
  • Kort hållbarhet, en öppnad förpackning bör förbrukas inom några veckor (för bästa kvalitet)
  • Som grönt te, ej varmare vatten än 70-80 grader. Högre temperaturer ger teet en bitter smak och kan förstöra de nyttiga antioxidanterna

Hej Annika, ursäkta mitt sena svar!:)

Jag beställde mitt te från Bättre hälsa, men det var tyvärr innan jag hade kolla upp särskilt noga det här med strålningne och de olika odlingsområdena. 

Har sett att man kan köpa ekologiskt matcha från Uij från tecentralen: 

http://www.tecentralen.se/gront-te/japan/dento-matcha.html?gclid=CjwKEAj...

Tyvärr skriver de inget om vilken kvalitet deras matcha har.

Tack för tips om gröna teimporten, http://www.gronateimporten.se

tyvärr anger dom varken område eller kvalitet. Jag har mejlat båda och väntar på svar. :)

På House of tea kan man hitta flera olika Matcha och där skriver man också tydligt både distrikt och grade, så det blir nog där jag köper nästa gång!

http://www.houseoftea.se/gront-te/matcha-miyako-no-shiro-40-gram/product...

Men det finns många online-butiker, inte minst utomlands, det är bara att googla lite så får man massor av träffar! :)

House of Tea ska jag kolla in :)
Jag var i någon tebutik på Götgatan, där dom hade en massa gott grönt te också, men minns inte om dom hade matcha eller eko.
Uppdatera gärna här om du får svar på mailen om ursprung och kvalitet. :)

Hej Annika och alla ni andra glada Matcha-drickare! :)

Nu har jag fått svar från Tecentralen, så här skriver de:

"Vår Dento Macha kommer från Uji, utanför Kyoto. Det är från den första skörden, och är en något enklare sort. Trots det har den mycket fyllig smak med viss sötma.

Vår Izumi 1a kommer från Kyushu. Ekologiskt odlad, dessutom handplockad och mald i granitkvarn.

Dessutom har vi också en matlagnings-matcha, som kommer från Uji. Den är enklare kvalitet, och passar till efterrätter m.m."

w For the 48-year-old cellular tower company operations manager, the date will forever be remembered as the day he killed what he says is a once-in-a-lifetime, 16-point buck. <a href=http://www.michaelkorsbags.in.net/>www.michaelkorsbags.in.net</a> By Laura Firszt, NetworxBeauty and utility are some of our favorite concepts here at Networx, and a wrought iron fence combines the two in a very classy way. While its versatile good looks can run the gamut from upscale elegant to over-the-top ornate, fencing made out of wrought iron also has a whole slew of practical advantages to offer you. Read on to find out 11 reasons why we love wrought iron fencing.1. As an alloy, wrought iron has much greater rust resistance than pure iron, because it is mixed with a fibrous material called slag.2. True, wrought iron can rust eventually. However, a simple paint job every three to four years � or a more elaborate one each decade � will keep it looking great.3. Wrought iron fence is strong and extremely long-wearing. In fact, it is known as �100-year fencing� due to its durability. It�s also resistant to shock, denting and bending.4. Because of their strength, fences of wrought iron excel at various security functions. They can safeguard children and pets in your yard (although you will need to choose a style that precludes jumping or climbing in the former case and slipping out between too-widely-spaced bars in the latter). They may be used as a safety fence around your swimming pool. Finally, the tallest wrought iron barriers are excellent at keeping out intruders, whether human or animal.5. A small (or large) portion of your wrought iron fencing can be repaired without any necessity to replace the entire fence.6. Wrought iron is ductile, meaning that the metal can be shaped into a wide variety of artistic fence designs. This type of fence is a proud design feature, not just a boundary marker.7. Working with wrought iron is an artisanal process. The iron is forged and hand worked (�wrought�) with special tools to produce its distinctive decorative appearance. Of course, this high quality comes with a correspondingly high price tag. A less expensive alternative is molded iron, shaped by pouring molten iron into molds to form attractive shapes; it�s nice, but simply does not have the cachet of handwork.8. Wrought iron fencing is made in a wide range of styles, which will complement home design that is traditional or modern, formal or casual. It often boasts very elaborate scrolls, curves, and twists, in a charmingly nostalgic nod to its Victorian influence.9. Wrought iron fence can be seen through. Some might consider this a disadvantage, but if you�d like a modicum of privacy without walling yourself up like Sleeping Beauty, you may well appreciate the see-through effect. You won�t be blocking out light or a gorgeous nearby view. When you�re ready to sell your home, the iron�s lace-like appearance will actually add to your home�s curb appeal and property value, and afford a tantalizing preview of your house and grounds to would-be buyers.Page 2 of 2 - 10. For fencing within the bounds of your property, wrought iron accents the beauty of features such as gardens. Because the emphasis is on design rather privacy or security, this particular fence type does not have to be especially thick or tall but may instead measure between 1 and 3 feet, making it a less costly type of wrought iron fence installation.11. Installing wrought iron fence is eco-friendly for a number of reasons. First, it does not need to be replaced frequently. Two, the material can be reused -- vintage or antique wrought iron fences, gates, railings and fence posts are very much in demand and may be bought and sold through antique shops or architectural salvage agents. Third, at the end of its useful life in its current incarnation, wrought iron can be recycled and should net you a pretty penny from a scrap metal dealer.Laura Firszt writes for networx.com.

Betty Mason, of Wheatley, was some what discovered after the Grand Prairie Festival of Arts. Arts Center Director Charles Law contacted Mason asking to display her work. She recently entered her work in the Grand Prairie Festival of Arts, Law explained. She has a mix of paintings that will be on display through the middle of December. Now up, the artwork can be viewed during normal business hours or by appointment. The center is located at 108 W. 12th Street and open from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each Monday and Friday and also open during class times, which are held from 3 to 5 p.m. on Monday. Appointments can be made by calling (870) 673-1781 and leaving a message. I have won many awards, the artist said, and have showed my work in Memphis, several other places and blessed to show here. Mason started painting nearly 40 years ago after her husband built an art shop in her hometown. She now teaches the craft, also teaching her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. My family encouraged me to keep painting. I really enjoy it. I feel that God has really blessed me, she said. There are currently 12 pieces on display. People should come see it, because she has a mixture, and her attention to detail. Her work is in retrospect of her entire life older and newer works, Law said.
Pre-harvest drop rates on early-mid oranges reached 23 percent in 2013-14, a record and nearly triple the rate experienced seven years earlier, USDA statistics show.

q Something didn t sound quite right to Luis Esparza of Chino Hills when he learned from his daughter that a real estate developer spoke to her class on Dec. 3 about the benefits of hundreds of apartments proposed adjacent to Chino Hills High School.Mr. Esparza, who spearheads the movement to stop the proliferation of apartments in the southern Chino Hills, said the school district was wrong to allow a representative of Lewis Apartment Communities onto campus to promote the project. As a parent, I was never made aware of the presentation time or date so that I too could attend, Mr. Esparza said. Is the school willing to give those opposed to the project equal time to share their concerns?

v SATURDAY 1/3 <a href=http://www.louboutin.in.net/>louboutin</a> The Ridgecrest Police Department had a relatively quiet evening during their New Year's Eve DUI saturation patrols.The patrols were conducted citywide from 7 p.m. Dec. 31 to 3 a.m. on Jan. 1. The RPD only did the saturation patrols and there were no DUI checkpoints set up during the evening. According to Sgt. Justin Danpier, three arrests were made for people driving under the influence.The patrols were only conducted within the Ridgecrest city limits. According to Danpier, the areas outside the city limits are covered by the Kern County Sheriff's Office.While there were some calls regarding noise complaints and fights throughout the night, it was nothing too out of the ordinary. Despite the holiday festivities, Danpier said the RPD saw fairly normal activity and nothing too out of the ordinary happened. It was equivalent to a busy weekend night, Danpier recalled.While several illegal fireworks were set off during the night, ranging from simple safe and sane sparklers to mortar fireworks which are illegal any time of year in Kern County the RPD did not respond to any of these incidents. Danpier noted any calls for firework activity are forwarded to the Kern County Fire Department, who are able to issue their own citations for illegal activity.It should be noted, within the city of Ridgecrest, the discharge of fireworks is only legal from midnight on July 4 to midnight on July 5. This includes sparklers and other safe and sane fireworks. Possession or use of fireworks on any day other than the Fourth of July can result in an approximately $1,500 fine and also applies to purchasing fireworks outside the area then bringing them into the city.The Dec. 31 saturation patrols were funded by a grant from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Office of Traffic Safety. The RPD had plenty of officers during the night, some clocking overtime hours, with the grant covering the payroll for the extra time. It lowers the cost on the city while giving us plenty of coverage on a busy night, Danpier said of the grant.The RPD encourages everyone to notify them if there is a suspected drunk driver by calling 911 or 499-5100. n

Hej,

Vilken bra artikel om matcha!

Jag och några vänner har knåpat ihop en hemsida med information om matcha. Bland annat har vi gjort en stor köpguide med allt man ska tänka på när man väljer sitt te. Du är själv inne på många bra anledningar men jag tror man kan hitta en och annan till hos oss. Kika gärna på köpguiden här :)
