AT TENZO, WE BELIEVE
IN BETTER ENERGY.
BELIEF AND MISSION
When’s the last time you felt like a million bucks? Energy for the whole day, a clear head and perfect focus. When we found matcha, that’s exactly how we felt. So we dropped everything, flew to Japan, and partnered with a Japanese tea master to craft the perfect proprietary blend of ceremonial and organic matcha for daily drinking.
THE TENZO SUN
The sun is the giver of energy for all life on this planet. It powers our plants, and our plants power you. But unlike that glowing ball of light, the Tenzo sun is green and you can take it home with you.
WHAT IS A TENZO?
"Tenzo" (Japanese: 典座) is the title given to the chef in a zen monastery. The Tenzo is responsible for preparing meals for the monks so they can practice meditation without hindrance. Since ancient times this position has been held by accomplished monks who have a way-seeking mind, or by senior disciples with an aspiration for enlightenment. We like to think of a Tenzo as the giver of energy. A Tenzo wakes up each morning with a cup of positivitea to uplift others, do good for the world and be the best possible version of themselves.
Most leaves don’t make it. In fact, almost ALL leaves, don’t make it. At Tenzo Tea, we handpick only the freshest, greenest, and most delicious leaves. Our organically grown, hand-picked, and delicately produced matcha will turn any boring glass of water into a delectable green cup of energy and nutrients.
MEET ROBBIE AND STEVE
Our founders, Robbie and Steve, created Tenzo Tea because they were tired of crashing from unhealthy energy. When they asked around, they learned lots of people suffered from the same problem as well. With only one college degree between the two of them and almost a zero percent chance of success, the duo dove into a world of clean green caffeine and never looked back.
