New Year, Mightier Matcha



Matcha powder is one mighty mix that you can add to a variety of kitchen creations. We’re most familiar with matcha powder mixed in with our green teas to enjoy in a warm or iced drink. Our premium grade organic Japanese matcha powder can be used in your favorite drink or our culinary grade matcha powder can be added to any cooking or baking adventure you go on. Matcha brownies? Matcha pancakes? The sky's the limit for what you can create and give a health boost too, just by mixing in some matcha powder.

So what make Matcha so powerful? Matcha is shade grown green tea. It’s then steamed and ground into a fine powder. As this is the only tea in which the whole leaf is consumed, matcha contains more antioxidants than its steeped counterpart. Green tea has antioxidants in it- matcha is simply a powerful enhancement of this antioxidant power due to the process it undergoes before it lands on your pantry shelf.

Healthy Resolutions

When we think of the New Year, a lot of times health comes up on the list of resolutions. There’s no need to stress about how you’ll find the time this new year to make health a priority. Health and convenience can go hand in hand! Matcha Powder becomes the simple solution for wondering how to start your new year on the healthy foot. Whether you prefer to take your matcha cold or warm, or in your morning waffles, you’ll indulge your body to antioxidants and an increased focus for your day. By adding the mighty powder to a variety of drinks, smoothies, cooking recipes, and baking creations, you can get your New Year started the healthy way.

It’s time to give your brain some much needed love too. With all the new goals that the New Year brings, you’ll want to be on your A game. Matcha Powder helps with improved memory and concentration, giving you that extra boost to take on any task in your day.

Matcha Sippin’

Maybe coffee isn’t your morning drink of choice. With Matcha Powder, you can add this to your favorite morning smoothie. This powder can help you start the day off right, as it helps to detoxify the body and increase energy levels. It’s like drinking coffee, but with the added benefit of boosting memory and concentration! This can help you take on the New Year in full force.

Or, perhaps, you’re craving a morning routine with simplicity. With our Matcha Powder, the well-rounded flavor holds its own to drink alone. You don’t always need a complicated beverage order to enjoy the benefits from sipping on matcha. Sometimes all you need is your favorite mug.

Cookin’ with Matcha

Sometimes our food needs a boost too. You can add this culinary grade powder to a wide variety of other creations, maybe even your Saturday morning pancakes! Start the year off with your strongest immune system yet. Matcha Powder helps to fortify your immune system so that you can ward off any cold, anytime.

A lot of the “culinary” grade matcha on the market today are typically disguised as a lower grade matcha that has a bitter taste to it. We wanted our matcha powder to be added to any recipe you can think of without a distracting flavor or taste. We use high quality matcha, which is most notably known for the rich green color. The higher quality matcha will also deliver higher quality benefits- it’s a win-win!
