Quick Facts About Matcha
- Our matcha is from the fields of Nishio, Japan where the best matcha is grown dating back to the 1200’s. Now that’s what we like to call tradition!
- Matcha comes from the camellia sinensis plant; the same plant that black, white, oolong, yellow, dark, and green teas come from. However, matcha has a very different growth, harvest and production cycle than all others. The leaves are shaded prior to harvest. They are steamed, dried and ground into the fine green powder we have come to love.
- Matcha’s nutritional content is naturally high in amino acids and antioxidants and is highly nutritious. It has the highest level of antioxidant count known in nature with 68 times more antioxidants than blueberries per gram.
The great thing about matcha is that it has so many uses!
What Tonia Loves About Matcha

- She can take her matcha anywhere. Matcha is great carried in a Pop Top Tumbler on the way to the office or in the park with the kids!
