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.
"The 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"
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.

10 must-try Matcha hot spots to visit in Japan
So here I am... currently planning yet another trip next year to my favourite place in the entire world.
The magical place I been lucky enough to visit on many occasions and as well as calling home for 7 months, has and always will have a special place in my heart.
This will be trip number 8 and it never gets old, the excitement continues to grow day by day until we're on that plane and Japan bound.
This time I will be also making an important visit to our tea supplier, Theanine and their Award Winning Tea Farm (where our Premium Matcha is sourced) to check out Ichibancha ("First Harvest" in Japanese). This special period occurs in late Spring every year when after being shade covered for a couple of months, the cloths are removed and the picking of only the finest tea leaves begin.
But more on that to come...
For now let's drool over these 10 must-try Matcha dessert hot spots to visit in Japan! They're on my wishlist and if you're heading to Japan and also enjoy Matcha, I suggest you add them to your list as well!
Even if you're not planning a trip, I'm pretty sure these desserts will make you drool like crazy (or is that just me ha!)
