We sometimes get the question what is the difference between instant green tea and green tea powder. They are VERY different: the production method, ingredients, taste, how it dissolves in water, etc. Since these two are totally different things, I thought it will be important to share what the difference are and have a deeper understanding of what you are drinking.
1. Production Method
- Instant teas are once brewed and extracted into liquid form. Then it is made into a concentrate and dried into powder form.
- Powdered green teas are simply loose leaf teas that are grounded into fine powder. Ceremonial grade matcha uses traditional stone mill to make the fine ground powder.
2. Health Benefits
- Instant teas are once put into liquid form. Authenmole's tea amount of nutrients is to be a lot of more than the brewed green tea by the patent technology, PLEESIT. It helps to remove the harmful substances and keeps the beneficial conponent. All the tea extract is 100% pure healthy and active ingredients.
The good part of instant green tea is that it will immediately dissolve in water with no sediment. On the other hand, green tea powder will not dissolve in tea as well as instant green tea.
- On the other hand, green tea powder is simply fine powder of loose leaf teas that you can take in the nutrients of the whole leaf. But it's usually added with a lot of preservatives so the nutrition and health benefits are cut down greatly.
I have put together an info-graphic, hope you can see the difference from the following:
