Frequently asked questions
About Wonder Matcha
What is Wonder Matcha and how does it taste?
Wonder Matcha is a magical combination of matcha, adaptogens, and functional mushrooms to promote energy and focus, while reducing anxiety in stress.
Wonder Matcha helps you get into a flow state, creating a productive and creative day.
Taste: Wonder Matcha is 50% matcha, so the predominant flavor is of a high-grade matcha green tea. It's a bit grassy, umami, and smooth, with the added earthiness and bitterness from the lion's mane and ashwagandha. In the lightly sweetened version, we balance some of the bitterness with organic monk fruit.
How does it work? Is it safe for everyone?
Wonder Matcha is carefully crafted to use ingredients in the appropriate doses to be both effective and safe.
Ashwagandha can interact with some medications like SSRIs and blood-thinning medication, so please consult your physician if you are on medications currently.
Will I feel a difference immediately?
Within your first 10 minutes you should start to feel some of the effects.
However, it's good to know that the adaptogens and functional mushrooms may not kick in immediately. Some people feel the effects quickly, while others feel it more over time. We recommend trying Magic Matcha for at least 2 weeks to really begin to feel the full impact.
What is ceremonial grade matcha?
Matcha is a green tea which is unique in many ways from your standard green tea. One way that it is different is that instead of steeping tea leaves, a powder is made from the leaves which you mix into a tea. This allows you to drink the entire tea leaf, significantly increasing the benefits.
Matcha comes in multiple grades for different purposes. Most commonly you'll probably hear about "culinary grade" and "ceremonial grade".
Culinary grade is used in cooking, baking, and lattes for example.
Ceremonial grade is highest grade of Matcha and is meant for use in teas.
We use ceremonial grade so that Wonder Matcha will taste great no matter how you like to brew it.
What are adaptogens?
Adaptogens are herbs and mushrooms that are used to help the body manage and adapt to physical and emotional stress.
Many adaptogens have been used for centuries in Chinese and Ayurvedic medicine.
Adaptogens are thought to stimulate your body's stress-protection response and help its systems return to a balanced state of homeostasis.
Ashwagandha which we use in Wonder Matcha is an incredible adaptogen.
What are functional mushrooms?
Functional mushrooms are mushrooms which are used for therapeutic and preventative medicine, and have been used that way for thousands of years.
Functional mushrooms are rich in beta-glucans, which can act as immunomodulators. These beta-glucans can help the body boost immune function and adapt to environmental stress (read: adaptogens!).
The beta-glucans found in Lion's Mane mushroom are known to cross the blood-brain barrier and act as a nootropic, increasing cognition and focus.
Do I need to cycle off?
It's a great idea to take some time off here and there to ensure you can take full advantage of the impact long term.
We recommend taking a week off every 10 weeks, or taking the weekends off.
Are these "magic mushrooms"? Will it make me hallucinate?
Although we think the ingredients are quite magical, all of the mushrooms are functional mushrooms and none are psychedelics (no hallucinations).
Was Wonder Matcha once known as Magic Matcha?
Yes, when we first started Pow we named our flagship product Magic Matcha. After a few months we decided to rebrand it to Wonder Matcha which is what it is known as now :)
