-Does Matcha tea have caffeine?
+ Yes. Matcha has about 30 mg caffeine/teaspoon of powder. Coffee has about 150 mg/8 ounces depending on how it is brewed. But matcha also contains l-theanine, an amino acid which improves cognitive function and induces a calm soothing effect on the mind.
-How much Matcha should I use? How much can I have per day?
+ A single serving can range from 1 teaspoon to 1 tablespoon of powder. We recommend starting with less. See how you feel. Over time you can experiment with the ration of tea to water (or liquid) that best suits you.
-How is Matcha prepared?
+ Matcha tea is incredibly versatile and can be prepared as a tea with water, or used as an ingredient in lattes and smoothies. Traditionally matcha is whisked into a frothy beverage in a ceramic tea bowl, using a bamboo whisk.
-What is the difference between Ceremonial and Everyday Matcha?
+ All Matcha grades have the same incredible benefits! What varies is the shading process thus impacting the bitterness and brightness of our green powder. For making Matcha, green tea leaves are dried on shade, still on soil. The longer the Matcha shades more photosynthesis will occur, thus making Ceremonial and Premium Matcha a more "aged" green tea.
-When is the best time of the day to drink Matcha?
+ The best time to sip Gorillae Matcha is either first thing in the morning for energy or later in the afternoon when you might need to be more mentally alert, calm and focused. It is perfectly fine drinking Matcha two or more times a day.
