Produced in the Nishio region, this green tea is shade grown to increase L-theanine levels and enhance the natural sweetness. Can be enjoyed on it's own with hot water, or made into a Bulletproof® Matcha Latte or used in a smoothie. Makes me feel relaxed and focused.
30 servings in each tin (I usually have 2-3 per day) of Kenko's Premium Grade Japanese matcha green tea powder. The tea is an intense jade green powder with a delicate sweetness, grassy overtones and very light astringency. It is not bitter like low quality matcha. It whisks to produce a creamy froth and is ideal for daily consumption. Enjoy as a morning pick me up or an any time of day treat.
Before listing this tea for sale, Heavy Metal, Radiation & Pesticide testing results were reviewed and passed inspection.
Kenko Matcha tea powder provides:
- Incredibly high antioxidant levels
Increased energy without the jittery feeling of low quality caffeine sources
- Natural metabolism booster
30 grams provides 30 servings (about a 1/2 teaspoon each)
Make at home for a much cheaper than a daily latte fix, and much healthier. Just add hot water.
Comes packaged in an eco-friendly resealable tin that you can re-use.

Make a Bulletproof Matcha! An equally energising, sweet, creamy and delicious coffee alternative
- 1 serving of freshly brewed matcha green tea
- 1/2 Tbsp – 1 Tbsp MCT oil or Brain Octane oil
- 1/2 - 1 tbs Grass Fed butter or ghee
- 1 Tbsp Raw Cacao Powder (optional)
- 1 tsp Maca Powder (optional)
- 1/8- 1/4 tsp cinnamon (or just a few dashes for a milder cinnamon flavor)
- pinch of sea salt
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- Optional sweetener: 4 drops of liquid stevia
Add all ingredients to a blender and blend. Or use a portable Aerolatte® for in-cup blending. Enjoy!
Alternative Options: If you want a less rich chocolate taste, use only about 1/2-3/4 Tbsp raw cacao powder and add in 1-2 tsp of plant based vanilla protein powder. You can also add in 1/2 tbsp of grass-fed butter (this is what is used in the original Bulletproof Coffee recipe). (Recipe from Tinapaymaster.com)
Matcha contains roughly 25 mg of caffeine per gram - about a 1/3 of brewed coffee however the synergistic effects of caffeine with L- Theanine produce a much longer lasting energy increase. Green tea or l-theanine is a recommended chaser to a cup of Bulletproof coffee.
As matcha is shaded, it doesn't get it's energy from the sun, It's forced to make up for this deficit by overproducing chlorophyll, l-theanine, glutamates and vitamins etc. It does this with the help of additional fertiliser during the shading process
Matcha contains about 4-5 times the amount of Theanine than regular green tea (20mg vs 4mg per gram) *1-2

- While coffee is king when it comes to boosting your brain function, green tea is like a noble prince, or the queen, whichever you prefer. They have different and only somewhat overlapping benefits, so the best option for top performance (and health) is to combine them. - Dave Asprey.
