WHAT IS MATCHA?
Around 1,000 years ago, tea farmers in Japan began crafting matcha, a powdered green tea made from the whole leaf and renowned for its health benefits.
Zen monks celebrated it for its ability to help them focus during long periods of sitting meditation. Samurai warriors partook of it before battle to gain mental alertness and clarity. Today, people enjoy its versatility, its positive effects on mood, energy, and overall wellness.
Not sure if you'll get the energy you need?
Matcha contains energizing compounds that other drinks simply do not have. These include EGCG (the world famous antioxidant energy powerhouse), L-theanine which is the calming amino acid, natural levels of energizing caffeine, and a range of vitamins & minerals your body needs for maximum function.

Is Matcha Difficult to make?
QUICK AND EASY PREPARATION
One of the most common objections to getting into matcha that we hear is "It's difficult to make." We'll say it bluntly that this totally is not true. In fact, matcha can take only seconds to prepare if you're in a hurry. We welcome you to pick the means of preparation that work best with your lifestyle.
We honor the traditional preparation with our original Matcha Tea Set (a nifty, Japanese-inspired starter set), but you can also browse our convenient tools, such as the Electric Bamboo Frother.
Unlike coffee or other difficult energy drink preparations, there's no grinding or straining. Just mix! Matcha will dissolve in water/milk in a few seconds.
