Because of the history, if you go to japan, and go to a temple or tea house, this matcha tea is the one been served in the tea ceremony. Our teas are certified organic by JONA and it is the ceremonial grade tea! The Haraki family has been growing the tea in the region for the last 700 years.

If you can bring your body’s pH up to 8.0 or above in alkaline side, cancer cell cannot live in the high side of alkaline. Of course, you do not want to get too acidic or to high in alkaline either.

Drink at least 2 water bottles (16oz per bottle so 32 oz a day) for weight loss, and 3 times after each meal for cholesterol, high blood pressure, and diabetics. Again make sure to drink it after the meal not on an empty stomach.
