"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.

Back from Japan and so much to share!
Matcha Yu Tea are just back from our trip to Japan and and easing into the daily routine again.
It was so lovely to return to a place which means so much personally, it really is like going back to a second home, full of wonderful memories and life long friendships.
One of the main purposes of us returning to Japan at this time was to get a rare chance to learn all about Ichibancha (otherwise known as first harvest) and witness this very important time in a tea farm's calendar when the tea that is covered with shade cloths and ultimately becomes Matcha is hand picked with care by a team of experienced hard workers.
Packing A Zero Waste Travel Kit
Very soon we here at Matcha Yu Tea will be saying Sayonara (goodbye) to Australia and a big Konnichiwa (hello) to Japan!
We're visiting Japan specifically to visit our Premium Matcha tea supplier as it's tea picking season but also to enjoy drinking a lot of Matcha and enjoying many tea inspired desserts!
Whenever we travel outside of the home, we make every effort to bring our own reusable items so as to avoid excessive plastic consumption.
So naturally we are thinking about the items we plan to take away to Japan to us to help us on this journey, being that we are very eco-aware.
We've narrowed it down to the items below and we really wanted to share our tips with you all as well, in case you may find them useful.
So, what exactly DO you put in a zero waste travel kit for Japan?
