Louise our tea taster says:
"Matcha is a superhero amongst teas. A super-concentrated 100% green tea powder from Japan. When drinking matcha you’re swallowing and ingesting every little bit of green tea goodness. A good source of natural green tea flavonoids (catechins), amino acid l-theanine and beta carotene, matcha has been drunk for centuries in Japan where it is used in the traditional tea ceremony. teapigs organic matcha is premium grade matcha from the Nishio region in Japan. The tea bushes are grown under lots of shade which maximizes the chlorophyll content then hand-picked to ensure only the juicy young leaves and bud are plucked. The stems and veins are removed after which the fleshy leaves are ground by granite stones to a fine powder. This is then immediately vacuum packed and sealed to ensure maximum nutritional value is retained. That’s why we call it super power green tea."
how does it taste?
With water - like a super-power green tea brew. With juice/milk - a hint of delicate green tea flavour.

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.
