This Matcha + Genmaicha Tea: 

  • Won Gold (1st Prize) in the 2022 Golden Leaf Tea Awards in the Matcha Blend Category
    • Contains Matcha powder that lightly dusts the Roasted Genmaicha Loose Leaf Tea, giving it freshness and depth of flavour.  The Matcha adds a grassy, fresh, slightly sweet taste to the flavour profile.

    • Both of these two teas blend superbly and tasting the high grade Matcha mixed with the Roasted Rice Tea is a delight to the senses. 
    • It’s perfect to drink on its own with hot water (no hotter than 80 degrees. See brewing instructions below)
    • Is a blend of 1st and 2nd harvested tea leaves, sourced within Kyushu island, Japan
    • 30 GRAMS - Approx 8 serves (based on 4g per serve)

      How to Make


      Add around 1 heaped teaspoon (around 4 grams) of Matcha + Genmaicha Tea with 1/2 cup of hot water (around 80-85°C) to a tea pot and steep for up to 60 seconds.

      This method can also be used to make a cold brew version using cold water.

      Health Benefits

      The health benefits of drinking antioxidant-rich Matcha Green Tea are many.

        Matcha Health Benefits

        It provides: 

        • a natural energy boost which keeps you going all day
        • feelings of calm, keeping anxious thoughts & stress away
        • improved focus and concentration
        • detoxifying which helps fight free radicals and effects of ageing
        • help with a healthy immune system
        • boosted metabolism and help with weight loss

        Let's break it down in a little more detail below so you can see how Matcha can transform your mind and body for the better.


        Coffee vs Matcha Caffeine Energy Levels Graphic

        • Matcha does contain caffeine which provides energy, but only 1/3 of the amount found in coffee. Matcha provides a slow steady release of caffeine into the blood stream, sustaining you over several hours. This is the key difference between Matcha and Coffee as the latter gives a sharp spike of energy but then drops quite suddenly, causing you to crave more. Matcha is a much more effective way of getting the energy you need without the nasty side effects or cravings of Coffee. 


          L-theanine and Serotonin and Dopamine

          • Matcha contains an amazing amino acid known as L-theanine that positively affects alpha waves in the brain, helping you feel relaxed and reduces feelings of anxiety or stress. Matcha also increases dopamine and serotonin levels which positively improves your mood, making you feel happy.  


          L-theanine & Caffeine Graphic

          • The combination of caffeine and L-theanine found in Matcha has been shown to improve memory retention and help with faster reaction time. Matcha helps you feel more productive and keeps you focused and concentrate on the task at hand. 



          Matcha Detoxifies and is Anti Ageing

          • In the week's leading up to tea harvest the plants that become Matcha get covered in shade to block sunlight and increase chlorophyll production. Chlorophyll can help improve liver function, which can help increase your body’s ability to flush out toxins. Chlorophyll has also been shown to help with the excretion of heavy metals, dioxins, and other persistent chemicals.
          • Matcha also contains Catechins, which are potent cancer-fighters counteracting the effect of pollutants, chemicals, UV rays, and radiation.
          • Matcha contains the vitamins A, C, K and B complex that help with renewal of skin cells. This helps reduce the the signs of premature ageing and promotion of supple and smoother skin. 


          Matcha boots immunity

          • Matcha contains one of the highest natural sources of antioxidants, higher than blueberries, chia seeds and other superfoods you may be familiar with. The antioxidants help fight free radicals in the system to keep your immune system fighting fit and healthy.
          • Matcha is the best natural source of the plant based catechin EGCG (Epigallocatechin gallate) which helps the body produce T-cells that fight pathogen and virus. Read more about it here


          Matcha helps with weight loss increases metabolism graphic

          • That wonderful EGCG plant compound helps here too! In conjunction with caffeine found in Matcha it can assist with boosting metabolism which in turn increases your body's ability to burn calories. 
          • Matcha also helps your body absorb and use the fat in your body as an energy source when working out.

          High quality blend of genmaicha

          I got this from Erin for free during one of the online promotions. I'm generally not too fussed with the quality of genmaicha; not as much as I am with my matcha and am usually satisfied with the store bought ones. But this blend - oh my - I am not sure I can go back to the store-bought ones after having tried this. It's too good. Followed the instructions to a 'tea' (hehe) and made sure to only steep within a minute; the result was a creamy and comforting cup with a rich taste perfect for this cold weather. This matcha + genmaicha blend is the best. Highly recommended. Thank you, Erin!
