Chris Wright loves matcha

Chris Wright, Warwickshire and England Lions cricketer and mega fan of teapigs has been trying our matcha over the last few weeks. After a few weeks he’s already feeling the benefits, check it out!

"Since the beginning of May I have been taking teapigs matcha. I was really curious to see how it could help me as a professional cricketer. Obviously I have an active lifestyle and train regularly in between games. I was hoping that matcha would give me a nice energy boost and would help support my immune system as it is packed full of antioxidants. It hasn’t disappointed!

 My favourite way to enjoy matcha is first thing in the morning as a longer hot drink (the traditional Japanese way). Sometimes however when in more of a rush I might take it as a shot usually combined with other supplements such as creatine. What a powerful healthy start to the day!

 In general I feel energised, lean and healthy. My Warwickshire and England Lions teammates seem keen as well and are always dipping into my tub of matcha! Its nearly run out and its not even halfway through the month."

Amazing stuff! If you fancy giving matcha a go and trying it made as a hot tea like Chris, then head over to our youtube channel where we show you how. And if this has got you intrigued as to how matcha might help you and your sport, or even just to give you a bit of a boost through your day, head over to our matcha page and add a £2 sample pack to our next tea order so you can give it a try!
