Matcha Musings

All about our home compostable packaging!

Completely thrilled to be featured on the Econic website talking all things compostable packaging! 

It’s so important for Matcha Yu to be as eco friendly as possible and we searched high and low for the best packaging to keep our tea fresh plus be home compostable ... and guess what?

Econic delivered! 

So proud to be aligned with such an ethical caring company that puts the environment first. I only hope more businesses adopt truly home compostable packaging that considers the entire lifecycle of a product and its impact on the planet 🌎

Why is Matcha so good for you? Does it live up to the hype?

At the recent Japan Festival (where we had our market stall debut), many people wanted to know about the health benefits of drinking Matcha.

So....we thought it would be a great idea to give you the lowdown on the glorious green powder that is still taking the world by storm.

There are a few key factors as to why Matcha is an incredible superfood and really packs a punch when it comes to the health benefits received from drinking it.

Just 2 weeks to go until our stall at the Japan Festival!

Super excited to report that we are holding our very first Matcha Yu Tea stall at the Japan Festival in Box Hill, Melbourne on May 20.

It's been many weeks of preparation to ensure our stall is looking spick and span for festival goers to stop by and visit.

It's going to be so exciting to chat all things Matcha with whoever stops by and offer people a chance to taste our delicious teas! Plus see how our convenient Tea Shaker works.

What does Matcha taste like?

If you've never had the chance to try Matcha, it's definitely a unique taste to experience. 

What struck me at first when tasting Matcha for the first time was the sweet yet savoury flavour like nothing I had experienced before.

I later heard the Japanese word Umami which translates to pleasant or beautiful taste. It's not sweet, not sour, not salty nor bitter.

It's just a pleasant taste that you can't really describe.
