MYcha is all about celebrating what you can achieve when you start the day with an energising and nutritious cup of matcha tea.
MY MATCHA JOURNEY
I first tasted matcha in 2008 while visiting a friend in Japan. But it didn’t become part of my morning ritual until much later when, as a new mum juggling family and work, I struggled to get through the day without a little boost. Drinking coffee left me feeling anxious and restless, that's when I decided to drink matcha tea every day.
Matcha contains less caffeine than coffee but is rich in L-Theanine, a rare amino acid, which works with the caffeine to provide an energy boost that can last up to 6 hours. The L-Theanine also helps me to feel calm, creative, alert and mentally focused. And because matcha is packed with antioxidants too, it's an easy way to add powerful health benefits to my everyday diet.
Sadly, there are companies selling culinary grades as ceremonial. Some that sell cheap chinese knock off "matcha". I've even seen it in tea bags (it doesn't come in tea bags). When I started drinking matcha regularly, I ran into this problem. A lot. That's why I set up MYcha.
MY MATCHA PHILOSOPHY
For me, matcha is strictly a Japanese tea. I only import single origin, organic Japanese matcha. No imitations. MYcha matcha contains no additives, fillers or artificial sweeteners that can be found in other high street matcha products. Super healthy, premium Japanese matcha green tea - it really is that simple.
