100% organic loose powder Matcha tea. For the busy, health-conscious individual. Just mix with water, hot or iced, and Presto!
Unlike the caffeine in coffee which gives a quick boost and wears off fast, Matcha tends to give a more natural boost lasting 4-6 hours.
Health benefits of Matcha tea by far exceed those of any other type of green tea. When you drink Matcha you ingest the whole tea leaf, not just the brewed water.
Matcha is also widely used in preparation of hundreds of common recipes of muffins, cookies, breads, cakes, ice creams, custards and much more.
