Detox

Matcha is packed with chlorophyll, which adds antioxidative properties in addition to EGCG and detoxifies harmful toxins from the blood.

Antioxidants

Matcha is loaded with catechins, which are a class of green tea polyphenols that are powerful antioxidants. A prominent catechin in matcha is epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG).

Personal testimony from
our founders ...

From Dr. Tuan ...

Why I drink matcha?"The simple answer is I want to live a long and healthy life. Matcha green tea is loaded with catechins, a class of flavonoids that are powerful antioxidant and anti-inflammatory phytochemicals. Epidemiological studies done in Japan have shown that drinking green tea is associated with better cardiovascular health."

"I am usually up at the crack of dawn to start work early at the hospital. Matcha keeps me awake and alert. When I do a coronary artery bypass operation, my hands cannot have the slightest tremor. Matcha keeps me calm and focused, without the jitters.  The combination of caffeine and L-theanine in matcha makes this possible."

From Bill, The Flavor Guy ...

"I had a heart attack in my late 40's. The type of blockage I had is called “the widow maker.” My heart disease could have killed me, leaving my dear wife a widow with four young children.  I changed my ways immediately by cutting out refined carbs such as sugar and starches.  Nowadays, I drink matcha, hoping I can cheat death from heart disease a second time."

Our Story

Dr. Tuan is a cardiothoracic surgeon.
Bill "The Flavor Guy" is a heart attack survivor.

Dr. Tuan is a cardiothoracic surgeon. Bill “The Flavor Guy” is a heart attack survivor. On a chance encounter, the two met on a fishing boat. The rest is history.

Following their fishing trip, Dr. Tuan and Bill became friends and decided to collaborate on ways to raise awareness about heart disease.

Despite Dr. Tuan’s operating schedule and Bill’s role as CEO of Nature’s Flavors, they set aside time to study and became matcha tea connoisseurs. They created a healthy and tasty matcha green tea drink loaded with antioxidants. As ministers of matcha, they made it their mission to spread the word about the health benefits of matcha green tea.
