Grifola frondosa/>Maitake (pronounced "My-Tah-Key) is a giant legendary mushroom in Japan, called "The King of Mushrooms" for its exquisite taste and flavor. It has been prized in traditional Japanese herbology for hundreds of years. Maitake, literally meaning "Dancing Mushroom", was named thus because people who found this precious mushroom deep in the mountains would begin dancing with joy.
Mai Green Tea uses highest quality Maitake mushrooms, grown in our bio-farm in Japan under stringent quality control standards. It is the same strain that has supported all major researches and studies.
Camellia Sinensis/>Green tea is the most popular traditional drink in Japan and is served at every Japanese meal. Today, science has found a powerful antioxidant property in green tea. It contains polyphenols, a form of bioflavonoids, which act as a strong antioxidant and help fight free-radicals. Such activities of green tea are more effective than those of vitamin E and C in preserving particularly healthy skin. Green tea normally contains about one-third the caffeine of black tea.
The green tea used in Mai Green Tea is premier "matcha" tea which is used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and claims the lowest content of caffeine.
