Zhena's Notes

The tea’s freshness is reflected in the sparkling taste on the tongue and its bright green hue. The creamy Umami flavor spreads delicately all over your palate, flecked with sun-warmed grass overtones.

The Process

Only the best shade-grown green tea leaves based on size, color, shape, and translucency are picked. It is an intense and precise labor practice that ensures the highest quality of matcha you can buy. Our 10th generation tea master then grades the leaves and chooses only the finest to produce this Matcha.

How is this Different From our Ceremonial Matcha & Matcha Kansai

Our classic Ceremonial Matcha is from the same region, produced organically and blended to produce a matcha that can be sipped daily yet is higher than the "culinary" grade. The Matcha Kansai is from Kyoto-a different region, and is the result of 3 Matcha growers creating a blend (like a regional wine blend), to create a special-occasion grade Matcha.

Breaking News in the Science of Matcha

The first clinical trial in the world to evaluate the inhibitory of matcha effects on the decline of cognitive function was conducted recently. 

  • Researchers found that daily Matcha intake was associated with improved sleep quality and social cognitive function. 
  • Previous studies suggest that catechin reduces body fat and blood cholesterol levels, and also improves working memory, while theanine improves sleep and relieves stress, and working memory. 
  • It has also been reported that the short-term intake of matcha can increase attentiveness and decision-making accuracy.

Key Matcha Benefits

L-Theanine

L-theanine changes the effects of caffeine in the body, and helps to avoid the crash associated with it and may help protect the liver and aid in weight loss.

Heart Health

Green Tea reduces LDL "bad" cholesterol, aiding heart health. By one estimate, the catechins in matcha are up to 137x greater than other types of green teas.

Cognitive Function

Research shows that matcha causes improved attention, memory, and cognitive functions. Contains L-theanine, which has been shown to increase the alpha wave activity in the brain, which in turn can decrease stress levels.

FROM FARM TO CUP

We source from small organic and Biodynamic farmers in Sri Lanka, India, Africa, China and Japan. The Sri Lankan farm that grows the base of most of our blends is where I was married, our tea workers threw our wedding in their small Lakshmi Temple in the tea garden. I have a direct relationship to most of our farmers and find the greatest joy in buying their most precious small batch artisan teas.

ZHENA'S BLENDING PROCESS

I blend with my muses (what I call our customers) in mind, making sure that each certified organic ingredient is the purest of pure for their health and well-being. I have found the combinations of flower, tea, herb, spice, adaptogen and essential oil to be endless and thrilling.

About Our Violet Glass Apothecary Jar

About Our Iconic Violet Glass Apothecary Jars

We're passionate about preserving the potency of the organic, rare teas and botanicals we blend for you. From day one, the goal was for you to be able to buy the jar once, and refill it for infinity. We not only love the look and feel of authentic violet-hued glass from Miron—the only patented biophotonic scientific glass—but we love the science of it when it comes to its unparalleled preservation and energization of the teas stored inside.

Buy it Once, Refill it for Life!

Picture your new Magic Hour Jar as a magical shield for your fresh, hand blended tea leaves. This special glass, with its captivating violet hue, works like a guardian against the harmful UV and visible light that can steal away the essence of your tea. But here's the real magic: Miron Glass lets in just the right rays, the ones that enhance flavor, aroma, and the goodness in every leaf. So when you open your jar, you're in for an aromatherapeutic moment as you inhale the fresh and captivating scents of our pinnacle organic blends. 

Why We Chose the Patented Miron Violet Glass from the Netherlands to Package your Tea:

The science behind our Violet Glass Jar lies in its unique ability to selectively filter and protect against specific wavelengths of light. Here's how it works:

Violet Light Absorption: Our jars appear violet or dark purple due to their composition. They are designed to absorb and block a significant portion of visible light, especially in the violet and ultraviolet (UV) spectrum.

UV and Visible Light Protection: Our violet glass jar is particularly effective at blocking harmful UV-A and UV-B rays, which can cause photodegradation and the deterioration of organic compounds. Additionally, it filters out a substantial portion of visible light, which can also contribute to the degradation of sensitive substances.

Beneficial Light Transmission: While the violet glass blocks detrimental light, it allows certain light wavelengths to pass through. It is selective in permitting specific light frequencies to enter, primarily in the violet and infrared spectrum. These wavelengths are believed to have preservative properties and can help maintain the quality and freshness of the substances stored inside.

Preservation of Bioenergetics: It not only protects physical properties but also preserves the bioenergetic or vibrational information of the contents, further enhancing their quality.

FAQ

How and where do you source your teas?

Our teas are cultivated, harvested, and blended from soil to cup with the Magic Hour Rule of Love. The base of our teas is grown in the tea estate where I was married :)! The exquisite buds are grown and harvested by our friends in a garden that touches the sky at the top of the mountains in the high-country of Sri Lanka. The pristine Idulgashinna Bio Tea Garden’s perched above a wildlife preserve. It was the first tea garden to become certified Biodynamic and organic in the world, it’s home to our family of farmers and growers whose respect towards nature and one another has become the gold standard of tea estates all over the world. We also source from small organic family gardens in Taiwan, Rwanda, India, Yunnan, Kyoto and Kagoshima, Japan.

What does "Natural Flavors" mean?

Our formulator, Zhena, is an aromatherapist and was one of the founders of the Organic and Fair Trade movement over 25 years ago. She was crucial in getting rules for organics passed and has had a long-time passion for organics, Biodynamics and pure products. Her blending style is bold and she uses Organic-Compliant extracts of fruits, essential oils, and spices that fall under the “Natural Flavors” broad stroke ingredient description by the FDA. We only use extracts and flavors extracted with non-toxic methods and are 100% natural coming from the fruit or spice or flower that is distilled without chemicals.

Other companies may use “Natural Flavors” that are in a Propylene Glycol base—Zhena fought the label standards on this chemical 15 years ago and is dedicated to NEVER using flavorings with this or any other chemicals. Our flavors are entirely extracted naturally using alcohol or steam distillation. In the blending process, if the extract has alcohol, the alcohol dissipates. If you’ve ever used Vanilla Extract for cooking—you’ve used what Zhena uses in larger volumes.

When we writes, “Natural Flavors” it’s not because we wants to but that’s what the FDA requires. It’s not a great description and we assure you our standards are of the highest using only natural extracts and essential oils.

Are your teas vegan?

Please feel free to enjoy most of our teas without worry regarding being vegan compliant.
As of May of 2021, the only tea we have that is not vegan is Quintessence, which contains honey crystals.

How many times can you steep a tea?

You could steep our teas many times. A new flavor nuance will arise each time. If you’re planning to steep more than twice, you might want to add an additional teaspoon or two according to taste and the strength desired.

What is the best way to steep tea when I have a super busy schedule?

It's a common misconception that tea ceremony has to take up a lot of time from your schedule. I want to encourage you to take time for yourself, daily, in a simple tea ceremony. Simply naming 3 gratitudes as your water boils will uplift and shift your day!

However, the process only has to take as little as 10 minutes! For example, for most of our teas we suggest steeping 1 heaping teaspoon in water that is between 160--212 degrees (depending on the tea type--check the label!). As you steep your tea for the recommended minutes, take 3 heart-breaths, expanding the emerald green energy of your heart chakra. As you expand that blessed energy, you will activate your true intelligence which is found in the heart.

Then as you steep your loose-leaf magical tea, center into your senses. As yourself the Magic Hour sensory questions:

  • What do I hear?
  • What do I see?
  • What do I feel?
  • What do I smell?
  • What do I taste?

Then sip your tea with newfound presence.

Presence is where heaven is found. We want you to find your heaven on a daily basis!

    Best Matcha Ever

    Love Love Love...I never was a fan of matcha but after talking with Sage at the tea store he told me I would not regret this purchase and Matcha 1111 would ruin other Matcha's and he was right. I make Matcha 3-4x a week and the flavor of this Matcha is rich, smooth, earthy and makes any drink 10x better. I make Matcha shots, lemonades and spritzers.
