How it all started?

 

Hello, nice to meet you!

We bring you the best quality of matcha, straight from Japan. It is a green tea that can give you a boost of energy and passion for the whole the day.  A perfect alternative for coffee drinkers!

 

We believe that matcha is more than just a tea, it is a new way of life, and an improved sense of being – a healthy body, a healthy mind! A matcha lover’s life blends active lifestyle with an inner peace and focus. That’s the miracle of matcha tea.

 

 


 

 

Our Founders

MakeMeBliss founders, Liisa and Liis, are both passionate and ambitious women who would like to inspire people to be more self aware and grateful about the simple joys of life. An essential mode of achieving this goal is to introduce the ancient Japanese tea drinking customs and share the love for healthy lifestyle.

 

 

 

 

What is Matcha?

 
Matcha is finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. It is special in two aspects of farming and processing: the green tea plants for matcha are shade-grown for about three weeks before harvest and the stems and veins are removed in processing. During shaded growth, the tea plant produces more theanine and caffeine. The powdered form of matcha is consumed differently from tea leaves or tea bags, and is suspended in a liquid, typically water or milk.
 
The traditional Japanese tea ceremony centers on the preparation, serving, and drinking of matcha as hot tea and embodies a meditative spiritual style. In modern times, matcha has also come to be used to flavor and dye foods such as soba noodles, green tea ice cream, matcha lattes, and a variety of other pastries. Matcha used in ceremonies is referred to as ceremonial-grade matcha, meaning that the matcha powder is of a high enough quality to be used in the tea ceremony. Lower quality matcha is referred to as culinary-grade matcha, but there is no standard industry definition or requirements for either.
