The UK’s first Matcha tea range blended and targeted specifically for active people with busy lives launches in the UK’s health & fitness retail market.
The T-tox blended Matcha tea range is available in three different varieties to cater to the specific and demanding needs of the fitness and wellness industry.
T-tox’s Matcha tea range is made using only the best ceremonial grade Matcha. The benefits of Matcha are well documented, it is evidenced to boost metabolism, burn calories, naturally detoxify, calm the mind, relax the body, enhance mood, aid concentration, promote healthy skin tone and lower blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol.
T-tox’s blended Matchas have been created under the watchful eye of their master tea blender who has over 18 years experience and Johnny Harris, who is the company Founder and Managing Director. Harris is an expert on the body and the effects of exercise and recovery which he has studied over the past 16 years through his professional work as a personal trainer and sports therapist.
“Many athletes and fitness enthusiasts take in coffee before a workout due to the documented improvements to performance, yet so many people I work with noticed the “jittery” side effects. The product range we have created offers a slow-release “focused alertness” and the associated improvements to performance without negatively affecting sleep.
Boost metabolism, burn calories, naturally detoxify, calm the mind, relax the body, enhance mood, aid concentration, promote healthy skin tone and lower blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol.
“The teas come in a quality convenient tin which keeps the contents fresh for months, perfect to keep at work or at home or in your gym bag with a T-tox glass shaker, also available for retail. You take the Matcha Energise before a workout and the Matcha Recovery post work out and Matcha Health is for everyday drinking.”
