Matcha is created when the leaves from shade-grown green tea are hand picked then ground down to produce a wonderful bright green tea powder. Matcha is an incredible superfood packed with antixodiants, with many positive health benefits to make your mind and body feel fantastic. Matcha is becoming exponentially popular and widely recognised amongst fitness and wellness experts as a powerhouse of nutrients that enable peak performance and lasting energy.
On the environmental front, all of our teas come in certified home compostable packaging from Econic Pack. Superior tasting tea that is good for you and the planet.
