During a summer in southern California, I pushed pause on my busy life full of work and chasing what I thought was success and made a purposeful decision to take time with my family, surf, discover, reflect and connect.
I discovered matcha tea on a business trip after hearing of its incredible health benefits and the “calm alertness” it provided. I wanted something different from energy drinks and the caffeine from the coffee I used to propel me through long days and hectic travel schedules. I found a nearby natural foods store and purchased some matcha tea. Back at my hotel, I realized that I needed to “prepare” it, adding hot water and repeatedly whisking until it was ready. I didn’t have the tools or the time available. I brought it home and tried it there. I fell in love with the effects it had on me, but couldn’t always find the time in the morning to prepare a cup and certainly couldn’t in the afternoon when I needed a 2:00PM reboot.
As I began drinking matcha tea daily, I also began researching it more. I discovered the rich history, the delicate hand harvesting process and the centuries old traditions surrounding this tea. I wanted to share them with with my family, so every day we tried to make a “matcha moment”; a special time we shared together.
However, not all my family members enjoyed the taste like I did. And upcoming school and other activities would make it tough to share our “matcha moments”. I began experimenting with flavors and other recipes using matcha tea, so we could all continue to get its health benefits even while on the go. This ultimately changed the course of my life. MATCHAAH! was born. I became obsessed with finding convenient ways to enjoy the benefits of matcha tea and being able to share it with anyone, tea lover or not. This meant our “matcha moments” could continue. In fact, now we can have more of them and share them with more people. Like you.
