WE DID OUR RESEARCH AND ASPIRE TO AWAKEN YOU WITH OUR TRUTH AND INSIGHTS

1.  -  Family farms are being taken over by mass-producing franchises.

2. -  Most big-named brands blend different quality matcha from different regions to market it as their own.

3. -  Store-bought bottled green tea has little to no actual nutrients nor antioxidative properties. 

4. -  Regular matcha drinkers have 35%~40% higher metabolic rate than those who don’t drink matcha.

5. -  Matcha has 70mg of caffeine, while coffee contains 163mg. (acceptable caffeine intake → 200~300mg/day)

6. -  Samurais drank matcha to keep their minds sharp and energized throughout drawn-out wars
