Make Matcha your detox this January

Let’s face it we probably all had a bit too much to eat and drink over the festive period, but now is the perfect time to kick start a healthy campaign.

There are many ways in which you can become healthier this January including more exercise and watching what you eat but what about something to drink?

Here at the Kettle Shed we have the answer with our Matcha Green Tea and Chinese White Tea varieties.

matcha_green-tea

Our Matcha is the most potent of green teas which was originally reserved for Japanese royalty and religious dignitaries.

The secret to this extremely healthy tea is its fantastic antioxidant properties, minerals and vitamins which brings health benefits including energy boosts, calorie burning and detoxing of the body.

Acting as the perfect start to the day or an antidote to post-lunch sluggishness, you can see how to make Matcha Tea plus a Matcha Latte in our videos below.

Not only can you produce tasty tea out of Matcha but it is also used to make cakes and baked goods by replacing a small amount of flour with Matcha powder, while you can even stir it into your cereal or sprinkle some onto your popcorn if you fancy!

pure_white_tea

That isn’t the only tea to help you detox in 2017 however, because the cooling liquor in our Pure White Chinese White Tea is also full of antioxidants.

Pure White is the least processed of our teas and its white leaves are simply dried on bamboo racks in the shade.

So if you’re ready to enjoy a healthier, happier and more prosperous 2017, make our Matcha Green and Pure White teas your new drink for a new year.

The Kettle Shed joins London museum’s Tea in Transport day

Earlier this month the Kettle Shed were proud to play a major role as tea took over the London Transport Museum in an event hosted by the lovely Peju.

london-tea-young-people

As part of their Tea In Transport day – which aims to bring young people into the museum – we held a bespoke tea making workshop which included a wide variety of our blends.

In teams of three, the young freelancers picked types of tea which represented different items from around the museum based on the five senses: sight, sound, touch, taste and smell. These were organised and thought out by the amazing freelancers.

After much deliberation, the teams brought their selections to us which were then blended into their very own tea.

tea-in-transport

Team Khadija’s blend consisted of earl grey, fruit burst and peppermint tea.

Team Elizabeth’s entry included chilli, ginger, coconut and a plain black base tea.

Finally Team Marie went for an earl grey, cinnamon, earthy, ginger and clove tea mixture.

Once blended, the teams tasted each others tea before casting their vote for the winner online, with Team Marie taking first place by just 1%… Well done!

After the hard work was done, everyone got together to enjoy some cake and Kettle Shed teas.

takeover-day-tea

We loved being part of the #TeaInTransport day which was a great success and also included tea tours and seminars.

Here at the Kettle Shed we are always looking to take part in tea events such as these, so if you have a desire for tea tasting and blending don’t hesitate to get in touch – zoe@thekettleshed.com.
