Olive Leaf Matcha, the world’s pioneering powdered olive leaf tea, exemplifies innovation not only in its healthful properties but also in its commitment to environmental stewardship. Transitioning from traditional packaging, Olive Leaf Matcha is now presented in environmentally friendly, fully compostable pouches, marking a significant step forward in sustainable practices. Brought to you by The Sicilian Olive Leaf Tea Company, this product harmonizes the ancient tradition of tea with modern ecological consciousness.

Harvested from the ancient olive groves of Sicily, Italy, each leaf that goes into Olive Leaf Matcha is selected with care from trees that have stood for centuries. These leaves are then gently sun-dried and finely ground, preserving their rich flavor and potent antioxidants. Unlike conventional matcha, which is made from green tea leaves, Olive Leaf Matcha utilizes the olive leaf, offering a unique twist that enriches the tea-drinking experience with unparalleled health benefits.

Central to Olive Leaf Matcha’s extraordinary attributes are oleuropein and hydroxytyrosol, two of nature’s most powerful antioxidants, which imbue this tea with up to ten times the antioxidant capacity of traditional green tea. This positions Olive Leaf Matcha not just as a beverage of choice for those seeking flavor, but as a powerhouse of wellness, supporting overall health with every sip.

Olive Leaf Matcha invites you to partake in a tea experience that is both ancient and forward-thinking. It’s an invitation to savor the unique taste and health benefits of olive leaves, sourced from the lush landscapes of Sicily, while contributing to a sustainable future. With Olive Leaf Matcha, you’re not just enjoying a cup of tea; you’re part of a movement towards wellness and environmental responsibility.

Olive Leaf Matcha vs olive leaf extract What is the difference?

Olive leaf extract is created by submerging olive leaves in either alcohol or glycerine for 4 to 6 weeks and agitating the leaves daily. The leaves are strained out of the mixture, and the liquid is added to bottles for consumption. This process may be repeated several times with the same leaves. It is crucial that there are no herbicides or fungicides on the leaves during this process, as they will accumulate in the olive leaf extract. Understanding the solvent used is also important; typically, alcohol or glycerine is employed, but there are 8 major solvents utilized globally: water, ethanol, methanol, acetone, tetrachloroethylene, toluene, methyl acetate, and ethyl acetate.

Olive Leaf Matcha is an OLIVE LEAF TEA. It is handpicked, sun-dried, and then ground into a powder. There are no added ingredients, and no chemicals or additives are used in making Olive Leaf Matcha. Additionally, the trees are dry-farmed, and zero pesticides are used. A significant difference between olive leaf extract and a powdered olive leaf tea like Olive Leaf Matcha is that with the powdered olive leaf tea, you are consuming the entire leaf, receiving all of its nutrients regardless of their solubility, and it’s chemical-free.

Olive Leaf Matcha vs Extra Virgin Olive Oil

The olive tree produces many healthy and antioxidant rich products such as olive leaf matcha and extra virgin olive oil (EVOO). How are they they same and how are they different?

Oleuropein Content:

  • Olive Leaf Matcha: This tea is rich in oleuropein, a phenolic compound known for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and disease-fighting properties. The exact concentration can vary based on the preparation and processing methods but is generally hundreds of times higher than in olive oil because it’s a direct consumption of the leaves.
  • Olive Oil: Oleuropein is present in olive oil, especially extra virgin olive oil, but in smaller amounts compared to olive leaf matcha. The concentration decreases with the refining process, so extra virgin olive oil has more oleuropein than more refined versions.

Caloric Content:

  • Olive Leaf Matcha: Being a tea, it has a negligible calorie content when consumed without added sugars or ingredients. This makes it an excellent choice for those monitoring their caloric intake.
  • Olive Oil: It is calorie-dense, with about 120 calories per tablespoon, offering a concentrated source of energy and healthy fats, which are beneficial for heart health when consumed in moderation.

Health Benefits:

  • Olive Leaf Matcha:
  • Antioxidant-rich: Helps combat oxidative stress and reduce the risk of chronic diseases.
  • Supports immune health: The compounds in olive leaf, including oleuropein, have been shown to have antimicrobial and immune-boosting properties.
  • Cardiovascular benefits: May help lower blood pressure and improve arterial health.
  • Olive Oil:
  • Heart health: Rich in monounsaturated fats, particularly oleic acid, which is known to reduce inflammation and have beneficial effects on genes linked to cancer.
  • Antioxidant content: Contains antioxidants like vitamin E and polyphenols, which help fight oxidative stress.
  • Anti-inflammatory properties: The oleocanthal in olive oil has been shown to work similarly to ibuprofen in reducing inflammation

In summary, while both olive leaf matcha and olive oil contain beneficial compounds like oleuropein, their health impacts and nutritional profiles differ significantly. Olive leaf matcha offers a low-calorie, antioxidant-rich option, especially beneficial for those looking to reduce caloric intake while gaining health benefits. In contrast, olive oil provides a calorie-dense source of healthy fats and antioxidants, supporting cardiovascular health and reducing inflammation when used as part of a balanced diet.

Why is Olive Leaf Matcha environmentally friendly?

Biodiversity Preservation: Olive trees often grow in mixed agroforestry systems. These systems create diverse habitats that support a variety of plant and animal species. By promoting the growth of olive trees for Olive Leaf Matcha, we help preserve these ecosystems. This effort fosters biodiversity and supports sustainable agriculture.

Resource Efficiency: Using olive leaves to make tea reduces waste and enhances resource efficiency. This approach repurposes a by-product of the olive industry, cutting down on waste-related environmental impacts. It also ensures a more sustainable use of resources.

Reduced Carbon Footprint: Olive trees excel in absorbing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide. Supporting olive tree cultivation for Olive Leaf Matcha aids in carbon capture. This process helps combat climate change and lowers the product’s carbon footprint.

Water Conservation: Olive trees need less water than traditional tea plants, thriving in dry conditions. This trait lowers water use in producing Olive Leaf Matcha, making it a more eco-friendly option.

Choosing Olive Leaf Matcha promotes sustainable agriculture, efficient resource use, and biodiversity. It also supports water conservation and reduces chemical usage, contributing to an environmentally friendly product.
