I used to think I didn't like tea. Then, on a business trip to Beijing, China, I discovered an entirely different world of quality, full-leaf tea that I had never experienced. From there, I explored a broad range of Chinese teas, then Japanese teas, and finally discovered authentic Japanese matcha.
Thick and buttery, smooth and savory - I had never tasted anything like it. Delicious.
Meanwhile, in my career, I had pushed my mind and my body to the point of exhaustion. Even a little taste of coffee left me tired yet sleepless late at night. But matcha was another story. The caffeine in matcha was much gentler - it didn't leave my body jittery and tense - and its effect lasted longer too. I could feel matcha's calming amino acids take effect a few minutes after finishing a bowl. And the fact that it naturally detoxifies the body and is loaded with antioxidants? Well, that didn't hurt either.
It was the healthy alternative I was seeking.
I've tried over 50 types of matcha from all over Japan, seeking the most delicious, freshest, purest matcha. Now, I'm excited to present it to you. Amid the stress most people experience each day, it's a perfect companion for a more calm, connected and mindful lifestyle. I hope it changes your life as it did mine.
