Most of us couldn’t do life without caffeine. But coffee can give us the jitters. Matcha on the other hand gives you the get-up-and-go, the oomph, and the hell yeah attitude of coffee, without any of the slumps, prangs or lows in between. All of its good stuff and none of the baggage.
- Not all antioxidants are created equal, over 60% of matcha’s are considered *superior* catechins, a class of plant compounds that act as potent natural antioxidants. Antioxidants help stabilise free radicals, which can damage cells and cause chronic disease. So we’re talking, anxiety-reducing, cancer-fighting, anti-ageing, you name it. Lots of the good stuff.
- Matcha contains similar caffeine levels to coffee, but it’s balanced with the slow-release natural compound L’theanine, an amino acid which regulates the intake of caffeine. This means a cooler, calmer high and hours of collected focus.
- JENKI sources their matcha from a single-origin,family-run farm in the foothills of Uji, Japan. Their matcha leaves are shaded for 3 weeks, which ups their chlorophyll level like nothing else and ensures the matcha is packed with antioxidants and vitamins. Then, the youngest, sweetest leaves are picked, stems and veins removed, then dried and stone-ground into a fine ceremonial grade powder. Matcha has been a staple of Japanese drinking culture for over 1,000 years. It’s what the monks drink to keep them hyper-focused through hours of meditation. While that may not be what your day has in store for you, matcha gives you hours of cool and calm energy to tackle whatever it does.
- Great for the MIND, BODY & ENVIRONMENT!
How To Enjoy: Add a few splashes of warm water and 1 tsp of matcha powder into a cup or bowl, whisk it thoroughly until a light foam starts to form and you’ve whisked away all the lumps. Add mylk (oat goes well with matcha) or water to top it up. Sip and enjoy the effects of calm-focused energy for up to 6 hours with no crashes or jitters.
