I have been drinking matcha for two decades. I attended tea ceremonies in Japan, and watched my former landlady in Tokyo, Suwabe San, who is a master of her art, teaching her students the art of making and serving tea, and let her teach me.
The preparation and drinking of matcha became one of my daily rituals that helped me to calm down my mind and relax my body.
A cup of matcha helps me to focus when working, or brings clarity when meditating, and nourishes my soul when I need time out. At the end of every day I have another cup of matcha, about three hours prior to sleep, which helps me to unwind and get ready for a good night’s sleep.
