We answer all of your burning questions about matcha boost, matcha capsules and matcha in general
What is matcha?
Matcha is a tea leaf that has been shade grown to protect its chlorophyll levels. The matcha leaves are dried and then stone ground into a fine powder and whisked with water to create a unique tea brimming with antioxidants.
Why not just drink matcha?
You certainly can and we applaud you! We created matcha boost for those who want the benefits of matcha “on the go” and without any of the hassle that comes with preparing your own matcha drink.
We also understand that matcha isn’t exactly everyone’s cup of tea! For those who just don’t like the taste of plain matcha but love the way it makes them feel, matcha boost is perfect for you!
What are the health benefits of matcha?
Matcha gives you a clean energy boost and focus. It is loaded with antioxidants including EGCg.
It is a natural detoxifier, is high in fiber and studies have linked matcha to lower levels of LDL cholesterol.
Matcha provides plenty of vitamins including vitamins A, B, C, E and K as well as minerals such as calcium, magnesium and zinc.
What’s the difference between matcha and regular tea?
Traditional green tea is infused in water and the leaves are discarded leaving behind the bulk of the nutrients. With matcha you are ingesting the entire tea leaf resulting in a drink power packed with health benefits.
When should I take matcha boost?
Drink after lunch or early afternoon.
Enjoy your morning cup of joe, but replace your afternoon cup with a boost from us. Try this out for a week. You should notice you won’t be tired in the afternoon, but you’ll also be able to fall asleep at night.
Take as you wish.
If you want this to kickstart your morning, take Matcha Boost when you roll out of bed or after breakfast. If you’re looking to avoid the afternoon crash, perhaps the scenario outlined above works for you too.
We don’t recommend taking Matcha Boost before bed as it is likely the caffeine will keep you from falling asleep.
Do I really take three matcha pills?
Yes! For reference, three pills is slightly more than a ½ teaspoon of matcha. A typical cup of matcha tea is between ½ – 1 teaspoon.
Do I need to take the matcha pills with food?
No, but if you have a sensitive stomach or find yourself a little queasy after taking matcha boost on an empty stomach, have something to eat first.
What if I don’t feel anything?
That’s okay! Everyone processes caffeine differently and over time your body will build a tolerance to caffeine.
The typical response to matcha is not a quick jolt as one might feel after a cup of coffee.
Rather you might notice that several hours have gone by and you haven’t felt tired, unfocused or jittery. You might have several hours go by and simply realize you’ve been quite productive and never felt tired.
Not to mention you will still be getting all of the wonderful benefits of matcha!
Lastly, if you feel you really need an extra kick, try adding an extra pill or two. Three to six pills is ½-1 teaspoon of Matcha.
