Iconic Tea Shop Launches First Matcha Tin For Sale

If you've spent time in the East Village of New York City, you've most likely walked down St Marks Place and passed the brightly colored  and iconic address where Physical GraffiTea sits. Maybe you've seen the sandwich board outside inviting you in for matcha, or purchased from the selection of over 200 varieties of tea.

Owner Ilana Malka, founded Physical GraffiTea in 2011 where she's been specializing in matcha and loose leaf teas ever since. Because she was inspired by the flavor, variety, and benefits of tea --  matcha being one of her favorites -- running a tea shop and cafe felt natural. All of her teas are organic and fair trade.

She invests care and patience when skillfully whisking an amazing and nourishing matcha latte. If you've had one here, you know it's pretty awesome, and you feel so nourished and well afterwards.

Matcha provides balanced energy, lots of antioxidants, and is rich in fiber, chlorophyll, and vitamins. Unlike steeping tea leaves, matcha leaves are ground and consumed with the beverage. More mellow than coffee, but with a comforting energy boost, it's perfect for picking you up during the day, lifting your mood and helping you keep your calm on those busy New York streets.

Matcha comes from Japan and has strict growing and production guidelines. Physical GraffiTea has a really rich and creamy blend of Matcha. It's premium grade, delicious and provides energy for the entire day.
