Modo Drinks has launched a new line of cold pressed teas which harness the antioxidant and detox properties of matcha, perfect for those on a New Year health kick.
The fresh fruit juices are available from Selfridges and come in two flavours – lemon and matcha green tea and pineapple and matcha green tea.
Fresh and cold pressed matcha is a powerful type of green tea found in Japan that is popular with Buddhist monks because of its life preserving qualities.
It is created by dissolving powdered green tea leaves in a cold brew that because it is unpasteurised, retains high levels of Vitamins A and E, beta carotene and antioxidants. Fresh matcha helps the body detox while restoring energy levels.
They will also be featured in a special pop-up during ‘Japan Week’ in store in February.
