Adding matcha to your menu gives your business a lucrative, high-ticket item that is on trend & growing quickly in the United States. Matcha is easier and faster to make than espresso-based drinks. There’s no roasting, weighing or grinding of beans, no shot-pulling, no waste. All you need to do to make the perfect matcha latte is either whisk, shake or blend 1 tsp of Tenzo matcha into 2 oz water. Then, replace the espresso shot with your Tenzo matcha shot in the latte-making process you already have set up. Many of our bulk matcha partners use Tenzo matcha as an easy add on & upcharge to their current recipes as well. The most popular add-on is a Matcha shot added to an espresso-based latte. We call this The Green Eye. It provides the customer with a quick boost of energy from the espresso and long-lasting uplifting energy from the matcha while providing the business owner with a $7 - $9 ticket.Take a look at the graph below to see how matcha makes customers feel differently than coffee & espresso.

KNOW YOUR MATCHA, THE GOOD AND THE BAD.
When it comes to crafting the perfect cup of matcha for your café or business, the quality of the matcha powder is of the utmost importance. There are three grades of matcha – ceremonial, premium, and culinary. Ceremonial grade matcha is the highest quality, with a smooth flavor and no bitterness. Premium grade matcha is still of a high quality but with a slightly more bitter taste. Culinary grade matcha is the lowest quality and often has added sugars and flavors to mask the bitterness. To ensure a delicious cup of matcha every time, be sure to purchase ceremonial or premium grade matcha.
High-quality matchas taste great on their own and do not need added sweeteners or other ingredients to make them taste amazing. They naturally have a slightly sweet front with a well-rounded, bright umami, and clean finish. And the best part is, they don’t come with a nasty lingering aftertaste. High quality matchas also have a smooth, buttery texture and are easily identified by their vibrant, bright green color. They also have more caffeine and L-theanine than lower quality matchas, so the consumer will get a stronger & longer-lasting boost of energy, mood & focus in comparison with lower quality matchas.
Low-quality matchas are cheap, but they're bitter, astringent, & fishy and usually have grainy, chalky textures and dull-green or yellowish-brown coloring. Because of low-quality matcha green tea powders, we see super-sweetened & artificially colored, Starbucks-style matcha lattes all over the place. It makes sense because the cafe operator wants to provide the new product to their customers but knows the matcha itself does not taste good unless it has a bunch of sugar & other additives mixed in. The thing is, if you use higher-quality matcha, you won't have to use nearly as much matcha, and won't need any additives, so your latte ends up being the same cost at the end of the day, but one obviously tastes much better and is much healthier!
The Tenzo shot is the first step to all your coffee shop matcha creations. You can think of a Tenzo shot the same as an espresso shot.
