The combination of l-theanine and caffeine in matcha provides long-lasting, slow burning, jitter-free energy


In most caffeinated drinks, caffeine is released into the bloodstream and expelled quickly. The l-theanine in matcha works together with naturally-occurring caffeine to slow its release into the bloodstream. The result is a smoother, slow-burning caffeine buzz that usually lasts for between 4 and 6 hours.


This is a radical departure from the way you're used to drinking tea: Instead of steeping tea leaves in hot water then tossing them away, when you drink matcha you actually consume whole finely-ground green tea leaves and all the unique nutrients that are contained inside them.

A centuries-old secret to feeling great


Matcha green tea powder is particularly high in EGCG (epigallocatechin-3-gallate), a polyphenol antioxidant found only in tea - as much as 137 times higher than your average steeped green tea, according to one study.

In-vivo studies have shown that EGCG can help improve your immune system, boost your metabolism, and keep your body and mind feeling refreshed.

    The amino acid l-theanine in matcha helps promote a state of calm alertness and long-lasting focus


    Matcha green tea powder is also rich in l-theanine, a rare amino acid found almost exclusively in tea. In numerous in-vivo scientific studies, l-theanine was found to improve mental focus and cognition while reducing stress levels. When combined with naturally-occurring caffeine in matcha, l-theanine has also been found to help to improve cognitive reaction times, numeric working memory, and sentence comprehension.

    Matcha contains less caffeine than coffee, and almost no naturally occurring sugar

    Better Caffeine

    Matcha contains an average of about 40-60mg of caffeine per 1 tsp. serving, about half that of a shot of espresso and about one third the caffeine level of a cup of brewed coffee. As a result, matcha makes a great alternative for those of us who are sensitive to stimulants but still like a bit of help getting going in the morning.
