Cold Brew Coffee differs from traditional hot brewed coffee in the sense that cold brew is never exposed to heat during its brewing process, hence the name! Instead, the process involves time rather than heat to extract the coffee’s unique taste profile.
NO! Iced Coffee is made by pouring hot coffee over ice, so the taste is very similar to hot coffee with slightly less bitterness. Cold Brew coffee is brewed longer and no heat is used in the process, leaving that great coffee flavor while removing bitter and acidic aspects.

Matcha is a type of green tea; it is a finely ground powder of specially grown and processed green tea leaves. Matcha is considered a more powerful version of regularly brewed green tea; instead of steeping and removing the tea bag, one would be consuming the entire tea leaf that was ground up into fine powder. Matcha is the favorite of centuries-old Japanese tea ceremonies, and its pleasant taste and health benefits make it a favorite of many tea-lovers today. Matcha powder is whisked in a bowl with hot water to create a frothy, bright green, and nourishing beverage.
Matcha is believed to have many benefits, such as being a rich source of antioxidants, a metabolism booster, and having the ability to increase endurance and promoting focus.
In general, matcha graded as "culinary" is a more affordable version of matcha powder. It is of lower quality (dull color, unpleasant aroma and flavor, etc.) and the cost of its production is low, hence the cheap price. On the other hand, matcha graded as "ceremonial" is of higher quality (jade green color, richer aroma, pleasant flavor, etc.).
It is advised that you use a traditional bamboo matcha whisk.
Matcha is also rich in the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine is believed to promote alpha waves in the brain, and possibly raise the levels of Dopamine, Serotonin and GABA, and those are neurotransmitters that play a very important role in determining mood and mental state. This is the reason why L-theanine is believed to have the ability to reduce stress, boost mood, and get you closer to that sense of cognitive synergy. The combined effect of L-theanine and caffeine is believed to be responsible for what is called the "calming focus" that is often described by matcha drinkers.
