If you follow RefuTea on Instagram or see our posts on Facebook, you may have found yourself dreaming of our most recent and long-asked-for flavor: Bengal Matcha!
In case you didn't know, matcha is a very unique tea blend and unlike any of our other flavors. The reason it comes in a powder form is because it is actually finely ground green tea leaves, which is how it gets its intense color. Many coffee-drinkers are adding it to their morning routine due to its high-caffeine content. Much like espresso is a highly concentrated form of coffee, matcha is a highly concentrated form of tea!
Along with its morning-kick benefits, it is high in EGCG, an antioxidant which "...is a powerful compound that may benefit health by reducing inflammation, aiding weight loss, and preventing certain chronic diseases."*
RefuTea's matcha is infused with a delicious and simply sweetening vanilla. Named after West Bengal, India (a state on its easternmost coastline, bordering Bangladesh), it is steeped in rich eastern-asian history. It's been around since the 12th century! You may have heard of West Bengal's capital, Kolkata, where Mother Teresa did her infamous mission work.
For our summer sips series, we wanted to give you an option to enjoy this new drink on a hot day. Matcha is strong- most people prefer it with some milk and sweetener- but switch that out for lemonade and you'll be glad you tried it!
