WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT WHEN I DRINK MATCHA FOR THE FIRST TIME?
Matcha is potent and can have an intense cleansing effect on the body – this is especially true for individuals not used to these types of superfoods. The more toxic build-up you have in your body, the stronger your body may react. Matcha helps to pull the toxins into the blood stream and then filters them out of the body. If you have ever done a cleanse, the side effects are similar. So start small and let your body adjust!

MATCHA VS GREEN TEA
With Matcha you consume the entire tea leaf and not a steeped infusion of the tea (teabag). With regular green tea, you lose all the valuable nutrients the leaves still contain when you throw away your teabag after steeping. With Matcha, you consume the entire tea leaf along with all the abundant nutrients the tea plant has to offer.
WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO DRINK MATCHA?
We suggest early in the morning to boost your energy or later in the afternoon when you may feel the need for that extra boost to pump through the rest of the day.

For individuals studying in the night, you can swap all your energy drinks for a cup of Matcha for increased mental alertness, calm and focus.
