Frequently Asked Questions
If I join the Challenge now, when will my stuff arrive?
Your matcha and journal will arrive within 4 business days (sometimes sooner, depending on your delivery address). Your online portal access will arrive on Wednesday, March 20, so everyone gets it at the same time.
How much is shipping?
Shipping of the matcha and journal is FREE for all Epic Self-Care Challenge first-time participants!
Can I do the Challenge again once I finish it?
For alumni of our Challenge, I will give you a special Challenge Alumni offer (at a lower rate), if you wish to do the Challenge again and again, to support you in reaching your goals.
Can I start the Epic Self-Care Challenge on any day I choose?
While the enrollment will only be open for a couple of days (so you can join for a limited time at this special 80% rate), once you get your stuff, you can choose to start on any day. There’s strength in numbers, so I hope you will start when everyone else starts too!
Is your matcha organic?
Yes, all Epic Matcha products are 100% USDA Certified Organic.
Will I be able to reorder more matcha at a special rate?
Yes! All participants of the Self-Care Challenge will get a special reorder code for any matcha in our store - from ceremonial grade to culinary grade. The ceremonial grade matcha usually is about $2.38 per serving while the culinary grade is usually about 70 cents per serving - and after the Challenge Alumni discount for reorders, this price will be even lower! :)
How is matcha different than coffee?
One serving (1 teaspoon) of Epic Matcha green tea contains less caffeine than a cup of coffee, but more caffeine than a cup of green tea. The exact caffeine content varies a little bit with every crop of leaves, but it is around 29 to 37 milligrams per serving. For reference, one cup (8 ounces) of brewed coffee contains 160 milligrams.
Matcha contains L-Theanine, an amino acid that helps your body to process caffeine differently and create a state of calm alertness. While one serving of matcha has much less caffeine than coffee, it provides a less jittery, more sustained energy boost – with no crash at the end. Matcha’s L-Theanine also improves focus and helps you concentrate. Matcha features much higher levels of antioxidants, which protect against disease and aging. At 1573 ORAC (oxygen radical absorbance capacity) units per serving, it’s one of the very best sources of antioxidants in the world. Matcha also helps boost metabolism and burns fat by increasing thermogenesis (up to 40%), the rate at which your body burns calories. Unlike coffee, Matcha contains catechins, a unique type of antioxidant with potent cancer-fighting properties. And frankly, matcha is easier to make. No fancy French press, steam machine or appliance is required like with coffee. Matcha provides fiber and nutrients that coffee does not, including chlorophyll, vitamin A and vitamin C. AND -- no coffee breath. Enough said. :)
