Starbucks derived their registered trademark name
Frappuccino from the original Greek frappe' beverage which is a foam-covered drink derived from
spray-dried instant coffee that is consumed cold. They married that with Cappuccino and they got
Frappuccino. The Dictionary Meaning Frap'pe - A cooled or ice mixture or beverage, as a water
ice, variously flavored, frozen soft, served in a glass. Although Starbucks sells it as a coffee or
tea beverage, it is actuality more like a milkshake or latte'. Now we make a much healthier
version called the Matcha green tea Frappe' as an instant powder.

Today, scientific research in both Asia and the west is providing hard evidence
for the health benefits long associated with drinking green tea. For example, in
1994 the Journal of the National Cancer Institute published the results of an
epidemiological study indicating that drinking green tea reduced the risk of
esophageal cancer in Chinese men and women by nearly sixty percent. University of
Purdue researchers recently concluded that a compound in green tea inhibits the
growth of cancer cells. There is also research indicating that drinking green tea
lowers total cholesterol levels, as well as improving the ratio of good (HDL)
cholesterol to bad (LDL) cholesterol.
It has also shown fantastic results in contributing to weight loss and is
included in many weight loss formulas.
Green Tea has long been valued in China for its miraculous medicinal properties
for the maintenance of good health. It has been said in China "it is better
to drink Green Tea than take medicine".
The Health Benefits of Green Tea.
Green tea contains antioxidants properties, polyphenols, theanine, as well as a wide
variety of vitamins and minerals.
Polyphenols are a class of phytochemicals found in high
concentrations in green tea, and have been associated with heart disease and cancer
prevention. The slight astringent, bitter taste of green tea is attributed to
A group of simple and complex phenol, polyphenol, and flavonoid
compounds. Produced by plants, all of the tannins are relatively resistant to
digestion or fermentation. All tannins act as astringents, shrinking tissues and
contracting structural proteins in the skin and mucosa.
Catechins are a category of polyphenols. In green tea, catechins
are present in significant quantities, more specifically; epicatechin (EC),
epigallocatechin (EGC), epicatechin gallate (ECG) and epigallocatechin gallate
(EGCG). EGCG makes up about 10-50% of the total catechin content and appears to be
the most powerful of the catechins ?with antioxidant activity about 25-100 times
more potent than vitamins C and E. A cup of green tea may provide 10-40mg of
polyphenols and has antioxidant activity greater than a serving of broccoli,
spinach, carrots or strawberries.
Flavonoids are plant pigments, and are the brightly colored
chemical constituents found in most fresh fruits and vegetables. They may aid in
protecting against infection. Deficiency can result in a tendency to bruise
An amino acid that produces tranquilizing effects in the brain,
theanine is a unique amino acid found in the leaves sencha. Theanine is quite
different from the polyphenol and catechin antioxidants for which green tea is
typically consumed. Through the natural production of polyphenols, the tea plant
converts theanine into catechins. This means that tea leaves harvested during one
part of the growing season may be high in catechins (good for antioxidant benefits),
while leaves harvested during another time of year may be higher in theanine (good
for anti-stress and cortisol-controlling effects). Three to four cups of sencha are
expected to contain 100-200 mg of theanine.
2 cups of green tea has approximately twice the antioxidants of
red wine, 7 times that of orange juice, & 20
times that of apple juice.
Drinking green tea will provide your body with many health benefits:
Rich in antioxidants - antioxidants are natural compounds
that help protect the body from harmful free radicals, which are believed to
be the cause of destruction & death in nearly all living things. Free
radicals can attack, damage, & ultimately destroy organic material
Increases your metabolism - helps to loose
Protects against cancer
Bolsters your immune defenses
Less caffeine than coffee
May reduce your risk of heart attack & stroke
Helps protect your bones & prevents tooth decay
Helps to keep you hydrated
Calorie-free (without milk) and helps prevent Obesity
The young tea leaves are picked in early May and lightly steamed to prevent any
fermentation. This allows the tea to retain its beautiful green color. Then the
tea leaves are dried. Traditionally, at this point, the leaves would be stored in
chatsubo/tea jars and allowed to season until November, at which time they can be
stone-ground as needed. For consistency, the leaves from various varieties of tea
plants are blended to produce the best flavor, color, and aroma. Before being
stone-ground, the leaves are processed to obtain only the meat part of the leaf.
The stems and veins are removed so that the tea will be very fine when ground. It
takes one hour to grind somewhat less than 40g of matcha and in the end the final
product is about 1/10th of the original harvest. Although clippers can be used to
harvest the tea leaves, the leaves for koicha/thick tea are still picked by hand,
one by one.
Matcha is the vibrant green powdered tea used in traditional Japanese tea
ceremonies. It is made from the leaves of shade grown tea trees. When the leaves
are harvested they are steamed, dried and then further processed to remove the
veins, stems and impurities. Only about 10% of the original harvest remains, and
this is called the "tencha". The tencha is then ground to a fine powder
often in a stone mill. It takes about one hour to produce an ounce of matcha,
because grinding any faster would result in a burnt tasting tea. Today the
highest grades of matcha usually remain in Japan for use in their tea ceremonies
and the price can be as high as $100 an ounce. The majority of matcha available
in the general market today is now ground by sophisticated machines, which make
it affordable to the average tea drinker. Regardless of the grinding technique
used, the production of matcha requires a great deal of hand labour, skill and
Matcha is becoming increasingly popular in the Japanese and international
beverage and food market because of its versatility and health benefits.
Matcha's flavour blends well in dairy-based recipes and its powder form makes
it easy to work with. Matcha is being used in ice cream, cheese cakes, cream
cheese spreads, white chocolate, latte beverages, hot chocolate etc. There is no
limit to the recipes that matcha can be added to.
