Matcha green tea hates stainless steel!

Do you know stainless steel can be an enemy for matcha green tea lover??

Matcha green tea is high in polyphenol like catechins.

These catechins can play a significant role in our health and beauty such as antioxidant, anti-tumour, improving brain function, regulating blood sugar level… and FAT BURNING!

Matcha green tea is a fabulous weapon for our beauty, weight loss and health.

You can be a “witness” if you make tea in a stainless steel cup.

It should turn to black colour,  which may give us a poor appetite, and add the metallic flavour to your matcha green tea.

Moreover,  if you drink it,  you may consume useless mineral,  which would not be utilised in the body, and heavy metals that can invoke various disorder.

To have optimal phytochemical,  beautiful colour and delicious flavour in everyday matcha green tea,  it is good to avoid using stainless steel tableware.

Even though I knew it,  I still made matcha green tea in my thermos for my long drive, luckily I pour matcha green tea into my white mug before driving at home,  realised my matcha green tea is so black!

How to drink matcha easily

So you can’t really bring your hot matcha green tea on road, but what you can do is bring your glass bottle and matcha powder with you.

You can check my video  – how to make matcha green tea without tea set !

This video explain why we should not use hot boiling water, how you can make lamp free matcha without using whisk and simply use a glass bottle or jar.


Purchasing high quality matcha is one of the hardest thing to do since sometimes green tea powder ( matcha tea leaves and green tea leaves are different ) are sold as matcha, matcha are stored in bad condition ( matcha is so sensitive to heat, light and air ) and some matcha tea leaves outside of Japan are processed differently so they don’t have as much as nutrients as Japanese one. Since so many people are crying to get the same matcha that I use for my cooking class, I start to sell the quality matcha.
