"You guys are the best, and you have a life-long customer in me. The Matcha Cacao is really helping me cut my coffee consumption. I recently went 3 weeks without a single cup of coffee. And this is coming from someone used to drinking a small pot, just in the morning! No coffee withdrawal headaches either! I am down to having a coffee more like a treat every once in a while; maybe once every couple of weeks. I feel a lot clearer in the morning, if that makes sense, rather than that shaky-wakey feeling. It's a "cleaner" wake up with the tea than it is with coffee. I'm really surprised at how easy the transition has been. A few months ago, I couldn't imagine a morning without a small pot of coffee. The tea certainly makes me feel better than the coffee every did, and I don't even really miss the coffee at all. Love this stuff. Just love it"! - J.D. Canada
