MatchaKo launched a ready-to-drink premium matcha drink that is certified organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, and vegan. MatchaKo is a lower calorie alternative to sugary drinks, and is a shelf stable matcha drink that is both certified organic and non-GMO verified using quality ingredients including ceremonial grade matcha sourced from Japan.
Founded by Mark Missirlian in January 2021 with a mission to provide consumers with the best matcha, MatchaKo's ceremonial grade matcha—the best type of matcha—is sourced from the Kagoshima region of Japan, a region known for its volcanic soil. Working with farmers and a production team with more than 70 years of experience, MatchaKo's matcha leaves are nurtured in a healthy soil with powerful minerals, producing large volumes of flavorful green tea leaves perfect for matcha production.
MatchaKo, manufactured in the United States, provides consumers with a better and healthier option for energy, with quality ceremonial grade matcha as the key ingredient. The brand's matcha beverages provide higher energy levels with a sharpened focus thanks to L-Theanine. The caffeine levels in MatchaKo are similar to coffee without the jitters, post-coffee crash, acidity, or lingering breath. MatchaKo contains more than 100 times the number of antioxidants found in ordinary tea and includes an abundance of nutrients and minerals. Matcha is known to boost your metabolism, and MatchaKo aims to improve your overall sense of wellbeing.
MatchaKo's ready-to-drink beverage is available in four varieties: Original Unsweetened, Matcha Lemonade, Oat Milk Matcha Latte, Almond Milk Matcha Latte, or a Variety Pack that provides two flavors of each variety, are all sold in 7.5-ounce cans in packs of eight. A lower calorie alternative to high-calorie sugary drinks, MatchaKo's beverages range from 5-60 calories per can. Aside from the brand's Unsweetened Matcha, MatchaKo's beverages are sweetened with Grade-A Amber maple syrup sourced from upstate New York.
