And how would these things stop aging? Does matcha give you immortality?

Exactly we are a forum dedicated to tea, because we like tea. We like to drink it because of how it tastes, not some claimed health benefit. Let me put it this way we drink tea much in the same way smokers smoke.
While Tea drinkers can lean towards more health conscious in our lifestyle choices ( not always though), even if tea was suddenly procliamed to be hazardous to our health, while we may try and cut back, we likely will be sneaking off at least once a week to brew up some tea.
So I submit if you want a serious answer to your question turn to an herbalists forum where it would be far better suited, because those people care about those things.

If I were trying to create some super health boost drink along the vein of what your doing....
I would just mix the two powders, cutting way down on the matcha, in some real soy milk that has been mixed with extremely fine ground/powder almonds and peanuts, and this drink would most definitely be served hot (preferably with something with a warming kick on the side like a crushed nectarine mixed well with clove, cinnamon, turmeric, and raw honey)
Or you could get something easier like this...

mix it with soy milk/milk and matcha, and of course drink it slowly while it is hot
As to your original question, they are different animals, no sense comparing the highest antioxidants especially since the specific types of antioxidants varies so drastically between the two things you have chosen to compare

Looking for a drink that will stop the ageing process, which would do a better job? Thanks.
Currently drinking 3tbs of yuuki cha organic matcha a day.
Wondering if I should switch to Yamamoto Kanpou barley grass powder.
No sarcasm meant, but I think you will get better results from eating a lot of fresh produce, regular exercise and regular sleep.
