You have heard that matcha is more healthy than coffee and are ready to make the switch to a healthier you? We can help you smoothen the transition:
1) Adjust the amount of matcha
If you are a light coffee drinker (1-2 cups of coffee a day) start each morning with a 1g serving of Matcha Moments. Have a second serving after lunch if needed.
If you are a heavy coffee drinker (3,4 or more cups a day), gradually replace coffee with Matcha Moments for one week. You might experience coffee withdrawal headache during the first three days. After that, you will feel the calm and focused energy of Matcha Moments. On the first three days, drink 1 large serving (2 g) for breakfast, have a second one (2g) between breakfast and lunch. After lunch, have a third matcha (2g). Finish the day, if you need to, with a regular serving (1g) of matcha. After 3-5 days, you can switch to two regular servings (1g) in the morning and after lunch.
2) Keep your favorite habits (or try something new)
Matcha can be enjoyed purely as a tea or - just like coffee - be mixed. Try different versions to find your favorite.
If you are used to drinking your coffee with milk try the same with your matcha. If you want to mix it up, try almond milk or any other nut milk.
If you were drinking your coffee with sugar, try your matcha with a spoon of honey or agave syrup. Check out our Instagram account for more recipe ideas.
3) Be prepared for Zen-energy
When transitioning from coffee to matcha you will realize that it takes a little longer to feel the energizing effect from matcha. Coffee gives a quick (jittery) caffeine burst that lasts for about 1-2 hours. Which is when you usually will crave for the next cup of coffee to repeat the cycle.
The caffeeine in matcha bonds to larger plant molecules, increasing the time it takes for the caffeine to break down in the blood stream. This leads to an extended release of caffeine. Also, the natural combination of caffeeine and the amino acid L-Theanine result in a calm and focusses energy that lasts for 4-6 hours.
