Boston Stoker has a long tradition of bringing you fresh roasted coffee from all over the world, along with some of the finest teas that can be found. In this tradition, we are proud to offer Rishi’s Sweet Matcha Tea.

Matcha tea is a traditional Japanese green tea powder produced by stone-milling a shade-grown green tea into a fine powder. The history of this tea is rich, as matcha has traditionally been used during the Zen-inspired Japanese Tea Ceremony.

Sweet Matcha is the fine green tea powder combined with milled cane sugar that we serve to you as a soothing hot latte or a refreshing iced drink.

In comparison to other green tea beverages, it would take 10 cups to match the nutritional benefits found in one to two cups of matcha.

Among these many benefits, matcha is packed with antioxidants including the powerful EGCg. It also boosts metabolism and burns calories, calms, relaxes, enhances mood, and aids in concentration.

In addition, matcha provides vitamin C, selenium, zinc, and magnesium all while detoxifying naturally and effectively. It has also been known to fight against viruses and bacteria, and is a rich source of fiber that helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar without raising insulin levels.

Because you are actually drinking the entire tea leaf, matcha delivers so many more benefits in a single cup. By hand-crafting a drink using fresh milk and matcha tea, you will be provided with all the vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that the tea has to offer.

So the next time you are doing your shopping at DLM and want a healthy, refreshing drink that will boost your spirits and your immune system, stop by the Boston Stoker bar and ask for one of our new matcha drinks. It will be our pleasure to make one just for you. Earn 20 bonus points on any Matcha drink in February with your Club DLM card!
