Matcha is a high quality green tea powder from Japan. For centuries it was used in a Japanese tea ceremony by the Zen monks and the high ranking Samurai. Today it is used everywhere – from drinking to cooking to skincare products.
Now, you too can join the ancient tradition, and have your very own Zen moment. Whisk it up and enjoy that distinct rich smooth flavor. It’s no surprise it’s been taking the world by storm, creating lots of healthy and zenful followers worldwide.
The biggest advantage of drinking Matcha and green tea is that you reduce calories by replacing regular sugar-added drinks you would normally consume. Matcha has a naturally sweet taste, it is Zero calorie. You can drink as much as you wish without feeling guilty!
Matcha has a distinctive sweet and creamy flavor with a touch of astringency. It has a pleasant aroma, and feels relaxing when drinking. It is highly addictive (in a good way). Once accustomed, you might feel like adding Matcha flavor to everything!
We suggest trying high grade Matcha powder, especially for Matcha beginners. Lower grade Matcha tends to have more astringency and does not offer smooth, creamy flavor like the premium Matcha does.
Matcha is versatile. You can just add hot water, whisk it and drink it.
Or add it to your everyday smoothie. Or bake into your favorite dishes. Check out some Matcha recipes.
Matcha does contain caffeine. It is best to drink it in the morning and afternoon, if you are worried about being able to sleep at night.
There is no known Matcha overdose! You can have as much as you wish.
Saying so, most people consume 1-2 servings of Matcha a day (1 to 2g). That means 1 pack of Just Green Tea Matcha (30g) will last you for 2 weeks to 1 month, if you drink it every day.
