The perfect afternoon companion...
Matcha Mint is based on organic Japanese Sencha green tea, handpicked and made from the first tender, young green leaves of the season's harvest. It is blended with a touch of crisp, clean, organic spearmint and a dusting of precious, organic, stoneground matcha powder.
Green tea alone is highly regarded for improving general health and vitality — known for its wealth of antioxidants, anti-aging, cancer fighting, cholesterol- lowering and thermogenic properties.
And the addition of matcha powder only serves to increase Matcha Mint's health/wellnes benefits ten-fold. Additionally, the relaxing qualities of L-theanine — an amino acid known to improve brain function — serve to counterbalance caffeine, thereby promoting concentration and clarity of mind.*
This special blend is great hot and fantastic over ice! Try Matcha Mint paired with dark chocolate for an delicious antioxidant punch! Oooh!!
And, it makes a great Mojito! (see recipe below)

THE BACK STORY
Tea.o.graphy was born on the high desert Mesa and is nestled at the foot of the snow-capped Sangre de Cristo Mountains of Taos, New Mexico.
Owner Dana Blair came to tea about 15 years ago as a die-hard coffee drinker.
When she was forced to give up coffee for health reasons, Dana was inspired to start a quest into the world of tea.
Feeling uninspired by the tea selection found at the grocery stores in the small town where she lived in Georgia, Dana decided that if she couldn’t find tea to be excited about, she was going to make it!
Upon returning to the United States, Dana settled in Northern New Mexico and began exploring blending and combining other botanicals and herbs with the tea plant.
As a former coffee drinker, she is always looking for the most flavorful cup, and so tea.o.graphy's blends are truly unique with robust and well balanced flavors.
Since the very seed of tea.o.graphy was planted, the company has grown to include a whole tea family and crew, including her loving partner, Steve Chavez, and his tea steeped children.
