"The Tea Shaker was introduced as an invention for drinking Matcha easily. Normally people would have to use a tea whisk to make Matcha. Now with the Tea Shaker, people can easily create bubbles which are important for Matcha to taste so good"
Matcha is a superfood here to supercharge you!
It contains 12 vitamins and also includes L-Theanine ; an amino acid that promotes relaxation.
Matcha stimulates the mind and body providing alertness and concentration.
Matcha is packed full of antioxidants, containing 3 times more than regular green tea as well as significantly more than any other "superfood" such as Goji Berries, Blueberries, Acai Berries, Spinach & Broccoli.
Looking for a coffee alternative?
Matcha contains one third the amount of caffeine that coffee does and it is slowly released to provide long lasting energy without any nasty side effects.

What's the secret to our Award Winning Premium Matcha Tea?
Visiting our Award Winning Tea Farm in Uji, Japan
With the trip to Japan but a distant memory, it's time to reminisce and share what wonderful experiences I had while there.
Very much a standout was the tea farm visit in Uji. Uji is a quaint town about 20 mins by train south of Kyoto (if you were travelling to Nara you would pass through it)
In Uji you can wander through a street called Byodoin Omotesando and literally smell the aroma of Matcha Green Tea in the air ahhh!
But more on that another time!
The main reason for visiting Uji was to meet the family behind the Tea Farm our Premium Matcha is sourced from and witness Ichibancha (or first harvest) that takes place in May each year.
What's the secret to Award Winning Tea?
Our Emperor Award Winning Premium Matcha comes from Kifukuen family run tea farm in Uji, Japan.
This tea farm has been in the Terakawa family for 8 generations (over 200 years) and has a wealth of knowledge and experience growing top quality tea.
We are honoured to make their high quality tea available to you, hand picked with care just once a year in May, known as "Ichibancha" or "First Harvest".
Every year around this time, around 40 experienced workers return to the farm to carefully hand pick the new tea leaves that will be transformed to make Matcha powder.
