The Everyday Matcha Experience: invigorating, brisk, distinctive
Matcha is different than any other tea you'll taste. Because it's the green tea in powdered form, it must be whisked or blended rather than brewed. The result is a rich, vegetal green tea with a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. Whisked tea is a very old style of preparing tea that was elevated to an art form through the Japanese tea ceremony. Today, matcha is incredibly popular for its health benefits and as a gourmet addition to both sweet and savoury cuisine.
Tasting Notes: grassy, vegetal, bittersweet chocolate
Enjoyed by itself with just hot water, Everyday Matcha is boldly astringent with notes of bittersweet chocolate. For those who prefer a sweeter taste, Everyday Matcha is perfect for blending into food and drink alike. Today matcha is popping up as an ingredient in everything from cocktails to cupcakes—experiment to see which ways you love to enjoy Everyday Matcha the most!

With Everyday Matcha, you are drinking the entire leaf, rather than steeping and removing the leaves. Because of this, matcha contains far more nutrients than a regular cup of tea. Some studies indicate that matcha may have eight times the antioxidants than regular green tea. Plus, matcha contains potent levels of L-theanine, the property in tea which induces feelings of mental alertness combined with relaxation. In ancient times, monks used matcha to help them meditate. Today, you can use it to help you focus at work or school.
