WHAT IS TENZO TEA?

To put it simply - Tenzo Tea is emerald green, organic & ceremonial, matcha green tea powder. We founded Tenzo Tea on a mission to share the healthy energy found only in high qualitea matcha tea.

WHERE IS TENZO TEA FROM?

Tenzo Tea is grown on the lush hills of Kagoshima, Japan in the top organic matcha growing region in the world. Matcha is like wine, the region and climate play large role on the flavor and color. In the same way wine from Napa Valley is known for its exquisite flavor, Japan is known for cultivating the smoothest, emerald matcha tea. Tenzo Tea is approved USDA Organic and JAS organic, is free of additives, harmful pesticides, metals, and radiation.

WHAT DOES TENZO TEA TASTE LIKE?

Open a bag of Tenzo Tea and you will notice a fragrant herbal smell with a touch of sweetness that matches the vibrance of the powder itself. At a first sip, your taste buds will experience a refreshingly smooth and savory flavor finished with a natural sweetness that only comes from high quality Matcha powder.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN TENZO TEA AND OTHER MATCHA POWDERS?

​​​​​​​Tenzo Tea is high quality emerald green, 100% Organic, Matcha Green Tea powder from Japan. High quality matcha is determined primarily by taste, texture and color. Higher quality matcha tea is bright green and delivers a smoother taste, a better mouth feel, and is less bitter on the tongue with an almost sweet afternote. Be careful where you buy your matcha. Some companies provide a low quality blend that contain sugar or other types of tea to cover the coarse and gritty taste. Tenzo Tea doesn’t need anything extra because it is quality you can see, taste, and feel.

DOES TENZO TEA HAVE SUGAR?

No. The only ingredient in Tenzo Tea is 100% organic, ceremonial grade Matcha tea. We tested Matcha from all over the world to find the single, best tasting matcha that doesn’t need sugar to inspire your day and delight your taste buds.

IS TENZO TEA ORGANIC

Yes. Tenzo Tea is USDA organic approved, free of synthetic chemicals, GMO’s, and radiation. We are dedicated to making the world a healthier place and that starts with our promise to give you the healthiest, purest matcha green tea on earth.

HOW MUCH CAFFEINE IS IN TENZO TEA?

One scoop of Tenzo Matcha (2 grams / 1 tsp) contains 70 mg of caffeine. Thanks to L-Theanine, a naturally occuring amino acid that helps your body process caffeine differently, our matcha tea will have you feeling a state of calm alertness that will combat burnout, brain fog, low mood, and mental exhaustion.

CAN TENZO TEA HELP ME LOSE WEIGHT?

WHAT IS A NORMAL SERVING SIZE

CAN TENZO TEA GIVE ME MORE ENERGY?

Oh most definitely. In fact, every employee at Tenzo Tea and many of our customers have completely stopped drinking coffee because the energy boost is simply THAT much better. The first time you try Tenzo Matcha, you'll notice this tingly feeling that starts in your toes and leaves you calm and focused. About a half hour after your first glass, you'll feel alert, energized and ready to catch flies with chopsticks. Three hours later .... YOU'LL STILL FEEL GREAT! This is because matcha tea contains caffeine and a naturally occuring amino acid called L-Theanine that makes you feel more alert and confident while helping you eat less, move more, and feel like you did when you were young.
