PerfectTed Organic Matcha Powder, as seen on Dragons Den, is a superfood powder made from shaded, nutrient-dense green tea leaves that originate from the foothills of Uji, Japan. Matcha powder is rich in amino acids, antioxidants, and slow-release caffeine for optimized all-day energy.
Matcha comes from the Japanese words "ma" (ground) and "cha" (tea), and it was first consumed 900 years ago by Buddhist monks to improve focus during meditation and long study hours. It was then adopted by samurai and used for long-lasting energy.
PerfectTed Matcha Powder comes from Uji, a region high in the hills around Kyoto known for producing the highest quality matcha. Matcha is the most prized amongst Japanese teas, as it is high in antioxidants and has numerous health benefits for your body and brain.
Although not causing jitters, crashes, or anxiety, matcha has the same amount of caffeine as a small coffee or conventional energy drink. When comparing the caffeine content of matcha to that of coffee, it is essential to keep in mind that matcha contains an amino acid called L-theanine. The calming energy boost associated with drinking matcha comes from the high levels of L-theanine. L-theanine has been shown to minimise anxiety, relieve stress, and boost focus.

Ceremonial Grade Organic Japanese Matcha Green Tea
What is matcha and where is it from?
PerfectTed matcha is organic and ceremonial grade made from the youngest, freshest tea leaves from the first harvest in the foothills of Uji, Japan. Uji is the region renowned for producing the world’s best matcha.
Is PerfectTed matcha always organic?
What's so special about first harvest (first-flush) matcha?
During winter, tender buds have a chance to hibernate and acquire extra nutrients. First harvest matcha comes from the first spring harvest, thus capturing the extra nutrients that the tea plant works so hard over winter to develop. As a result, the first harvest matcha has 3X the L-theanine and twice the caffeine of second harvest (second flush) matcha, which contains significantly fewer antioxidants and nutrients.
How long does matcha last?
PerfectTed Organic Matcha Powders have an expiration date on them, but matcha usually has a shelf life of approximately 2 years. For maximum freshness, store your matcha away from light, preferably in the fridge once opened.
How much caffeine is in Matcha Powder?
68mg caffeine per 1 tsp (2g) matcha.
How should I store my matcha powder?
Store it in an airtight container away from direct light exposure.
Why is matcha more expensive than green tea?
Due to the meticulous process in which ceremonial grade matcha is grown and harvested. Matcha green tea powder has 10x the benefits of your standard cup of green tea.
Is PerfectTed matcha tested for radiation and heavy metals?
Yes, PerfectTed matcha goes through all required testing, specifically for radiation and heavy metals.
How much matcha should I have in a day?
