Green tea, and Peppermint leaves
Trust us when we tell you that you‟ve never had a Matcha like this
before. In fact, trust us when we tell you that you‟ve never
even had a beverage like this one in general. According to the ancient
Roman philosopher Pliny the Elder, (23 AD – 79 AD),
“As for the garden mint, the very smell of it alone recovers and
refreshes the spirits.” While this is undoubtedly true, as you‟ll
soon discover the smell of craft-ground peppermint mixed with premium
Izu Matcha refreshes the spirits doubly so.
According to health folklore dating back to at least the time of Pliny,
people have long been consuming peppermint to help
combat a variety of ailments including nausea, abdominal pain, fatigue
and more. While we can‟t verify these claims
scientifically, we can say that we all know from experience just how
soothing peppermint can be during times of stress, or
when the workday has been particularly hectic.
In many ways, Matcha produces a similar effect. Originally produced as
the key component of the Japanese tea ceremony,
Matchas were designed to instill a feeling of calm serenity when
enjoyed. The rigid structure of the ceremony it featured in was
designed to spiritually transport the drinker from the general hustle
and bustle of life to a place of quiet serenity. (Today, we
commonly refer to this as “going to your happy place.”)
Finally, after centuries of history, our Tea Master decided to combine
the rich flavours of green tea and natural peppermint to
create a tea all but guaranteed to transport you to your happy place
from the first sip.
Smooth, astringent and loaded with
aromatic layers of mint, Peppermint Matcha is the sort of magical
beverage that comes around once in a lifetime. Brew a cup
