Grand Open

June 6, 2010

Today was a great first full day for Matcha Box.  We had loads of visitors including friends from the Japanese press.

Massa, Alissa, and Liberty from nyliberty.exblog.jp

Liberty loves our matcha-mallows

Nothing beats an iced matcha with fresh ginger!

We’ve made so many new friends.  Stay tuned for pictures of our customers and friends.  Come by and have your picture taken for our blog.

Many people have been asking about the health benefits that are unique to matcha tea.  Matchasource.com has an entire section dedicated to the health benefits of matcha.  Check it out at http://www.matchasource.com/matcha-tea-health-benefits-s/14.htm

Our pastry are also making quite a splash.  People are coming back with their family and friends to sample the treats that go so well with the tea.  In Japan, it is traditional to eat a sweet (wagashi), while sipping matcha.  The gentle sweetness of the wagashi is a perfect compliment to the unique flavors in the tea.  Our pastry chef has made perfect bites for matcha sipping.  When you come down, pair a treat with your drink.
