So, what exactly is matcha? Allow us to spill the tea...

Matcha is a Japanese green tea powder that’s made from ground tea leaves. For centuries, it’s been part of traditional tea ceremonies and has since become popular throughout the world.

While green tea alone has tons of antioxidants, matcha takes things up a notch. Rather than steeping leaves to make regular green tea, matcha is made by whisking the powder into milk or hot water, so you consume the whole leaf with every drink while also absorbing all those delicious nutrients.

Matcha supports the immune system, can reduce stress, improve brain function and gives you a natural energy boost without the jittery feeling that can come with a cup of coffee. Matcha is the answer if you want to look good and feel good.


We use Spirit Tea for our specialty drinks, bringing BCC lovers the most authentic matcha. Its shade-grown, de-veined leaves are ground into an ultra-fine silky powder that will leave you saying, ‘thank you very matcha!’

Don’t just take our word for it, try it yourself the next time you visit Blue Collar Coffee.
