Matcha is stone ground green tea. The whole green tea leaf is de-veined and de-stemmed and 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. Try it hot or iced and experience the healthy benefits of matcha we love!
