Louise our tea taster says:
"We like to think of it as a sort of superhero amongst teas, as it’s a super-concentrated green tea powder that’s packed with antioxidants and nutrients.
teapigs matcha comes from the renowned Nishio region in Japan, where the tea leaves are grown under cover to produce lots of amino acids and chlorophyll (the bright green good stuff). The leaves are then dried and very slowly ground by granite to a very fine powder, which is then packed and sealed immediately, so as to lock in all the nutrients in.
It’s been a ceremonial beverage drunk by Buddhist monks and royalty for over 900 years. But you needn’t feel foolish about the fact you’ve never heard of it before as, until now, virtually all matcha has been consumed within Japan."
how does it taste?
With water - like a super-power green tea brew. With juice/milk - a hint of delicate green tea flavour.
good if you're feeling
Blobby and slobby - this super-power brew is the answer to all muffin-top, couch potato-related concerns.
how we like it
Every day - a shot a day is better than an apple at keeping the doc at bay.
Our way - the teapigs shot. All you need is 1g (approx. 1/2 teaspoon) of matcha and approx. 30ml water/juice/milk. Put the matcha in a glass, cover with the liquid, whisk or stir rapidly. Knock it back - we use a hand-held electric whisk.
