Vancouverites love their coffee and tea but many don’t know that the big coffee chain’s ingredients aren’t exactly as advertised. For instance have you ever heard of ‘matcha’? It’s a premium green tea powder from Japan that contains high concentrations of antioxidants, vitamins and fibre! Starting today BLENZ COFFEE is launching their Matcha Latte™ promotion. Other popular coffee chains companies sell ‘matcha’ or ‘green tea’ products with as little as 5% actual matcha as an ingredient, the rest is fillers and sugar, BLENZ COFFEE believes that their customers deserve only the best, that’s why they use only 100% authentic, premium matcha. Every day until May 11, from 3-11 p.m., you can buy a hot or iced regular size Matcha Latte™ for 2.99 + tax. Real matcha at that price is a bargain.

WHAT’S A’ MATCHA!?
Matcha is a premium green tea powder from Japan. To the Japanese culture Matcha is very special and it is mainly used in tea ceremonies because of its superior grade and health benefits. It is one of the only tea varieties that is ground into a fine powder, so that when drinking, you consume the whole tea leaf. As a result of the whole leaf being consumed, the full nutritional benefits of matcha are enjoyed. Matcha contains high concentrations of antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and fibre and its taste is aromatic and intense, which is soon followed by a lingering hint of sweetness.
Matcha is very luxurious and is generally much more expensive than other forms of teas, and that’s why at BLENZ, they believe their customers deserve only the best, authentic, premium ingredients. BLENZ COFFEE uses only 100% pure matcha, unlike others, who use lesser quality green teas and fillers in their “green tea” beverages. Demand only 100% MATCHA!
