What is matcha?
Matcha is stone ground green tea. The whole green tea leaf is ground into a powder and then whisked in hot water. You get the benefits of the whole leaf in your cup!
Matcha is traditionally consumed as part of a tea ceremony. All of our matcha comes from Kyoto, Japan a famed region for green tea.
Green tea has the combination of caffeine and L-theanine and this makes it a very unique drink. The effects of caffeine in tea are being moderated by L-theanine which gives you a lasting feeling of energy in tea. That is why monks have used it almost a century in Japan for mindful alertness during long periods of meditation.
We love our matcha hot and iced! We even add coconut milk to ours and pineapple juice to spruce it up! But in the morning our favorite is to drink it straight up and sip it very slowly.
