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.
Tenzo Tea was founded in 2016 to make the world a healthier place. We’re on a mission to share the healthiest drink on the planet with the healthy lifestylers and self-optimizers of the world.
We believe in a world of sustainable and healthy energy from farm to cup. We see a world where everyone replaces their brown cups and energy drinks with green clean caffeine. We see a world of healthy people who feel good, who get sh*t done, and live clear-headed.
What is 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.
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.
