So...why not matcha?

1) Matcha is
shockingly expensive

For a standard cup of matcha, at home, you'll be paying $1+ for one mug, and that's if you only use half a teaspoon to make it last. Ouch!!

2) It is a seriously
"acquired" taste

Matcha is usually very bitter. When do you see matcha being drunk straight? There's a reason it's always mixed or cut!

3) It's not the ultimate antioxidant powerhouse

Yes matcha is good, but there are plenty of other teas that have more antioxidants. It does NOT have 137x more than green tea!
