There’s a new kid on the block, its name is matcha, and it’s giving other cool-kid ingredients a run for their money. What does that mean? Basically it means if kale, chia seeds and coconut oil were the Plastics (cue Mean Girls), then matcha would be Cady Heron (cue Lindsay Lohan, actually don’t, it’s not the weekend quite yet).
But seriously, DAVIDsTEA – who keeps all things tea fresh and un-intimidating – is one of the first to hop on this matcha train with a slew of accoutrements to make one a MATCHA MASTER (yes that’s a thing). Six types of tea, check. Single serve matcha packs, check. A matcha maker (which will change your life) and the perfect matcha scooping spoon, check check.
Because why wouldn’t you be using matcha for anything and everything at home? It’s basically an all-natural miracle ingredient packed with antioxidants, caffeine, and chlorophyll; that means it makes you glow, wake up, and detoxify all at the same time.
Some say when life gives you lemons, you make lemonade. Well, when DAVIDsTEA gave us matcha, we made matcha doughnuts. Pretty ‘new potato’ right? Drink it, cook with it, do what you will with it, but we can all agree on one simple fact: Matcha is the newest, coolest potato. We predict it will have a far longer reign than Cady Heron did…
