Is There a "Best Time" To Drink Matcha?

Posted by Staff Writer on


If you love matcha, drinking this delicious drink any time of the day seems like the best idea. For those who are sensitive to caffeine, you may need to reduce your matcha consumption to twice each day. However, if you are wondering if there is a specific time to drink matcha to reap the best benefits, here is a helpful guide to understanding the best time to drink matcha!

Drink Matcha in the Morning

The greatest time to consume matcha is shortly after you wake up or just before you go to work. Matcha gives you a great caffeine boost and keeps you focused. It goes well with breakfast because it gives you the energy to tackle the day. It is the ideal replacement for a morning cup of coffee because it's healthier and contains less caffeine.

Drink Matcha Before Working Out

A small amount of matcha before working out will give you the push you need to finish your workout strong. Matcha might also be the ideal pre-workout beverage for people who find it challenging to exercise after a long day at work or school. For optimal effect, consume matcha 30 minutes or an hour before your workout as it will improve your focus, stamina, and endurance. To aid with muscle rehabilitation, you may even mix matcha with some high-protein soy milk!

Our organic, ceremonial-grade Organic Ceremonial Matcha 700: Ceremonial Matcha Tea of Longevity & Infinite Energy can help you boost your memory, attention, and cognitive functions, as well as aid in weight loss.

Drink Matcha After a Meal

Try drinking a cup of matcha with your meal if you routinely go into a "food coma" after lunch or supper. After a large meal, you could experience bloating and sleepiness. A little matcha might help. However, it is best to wait 30 to 45 minutes before consuming matcha as the tannins and caffeine in matcha act as barriers during digestion, resulting in the nutrients not being able to be adequately absorbed. 

Our Matcha 1111: Pinnacle Grade Ceremonial Matcha for Experiencing The Infinite is the finest quality Ceremonial Matcha, designated for exceptional occasions and for expanding the mind to the infinite.

Drink Matcha At Night

Matcha in the evening may seem pointless, especially if you are caffeine sensitive. As matcha contains caffeine, some may suggest not drinking them late at night, about two hours before bedtime as it will affect your mood, energy levels, and sleep quality.

On the other hand, if you are planning to do some work or study at night, drinking a cup of matcha can be beneficial as it will keep you energized and help to heighten your focus throughout the night.
