New blend of matcha tea with activated bamboo charcoal to help cleanse

The Republic of Tea's new U-Matcha Charcoal Tea

The Republic of Tea, leading purveyor of premium teas and herbs, presents the latest innovation in matcha teas with the launch of its U-Matcha® Charcoal Tea. The tea’s powerful cleansing combination of premium Japanese matcha green tea powder and activated bamboo charcoal can be used as part of a detox program by sipping two cups daily.

U-Matcha® Charcoal Tea’s activated bamboo charcoal can help cleanse the system by binding to and removing toxins from our body. Charcoal is essentially flavorless, so the grassy, earthy flavor of premium matcha shines in this blend. U-Matcha® Charcoal Tea can be enjoyed hot or iced.

The Republic of Tea’s U-Matcha® is unlike regular green tea; these tender, shade-grown leaves are ground to a fine powder. Instead of being steeped, U-Matcha® teas are blended into water and sipped (ground powder and all). This exceptional tea is abundant in nutrients and has the balanced flavors of what is referred to as umami (literally, "yummy" in Japanese). Each U-Matcha tea from The Republic of Tea is Gluten-Free certified and may also be used in cooking and baking. This enticing line of teas includes U-Matcha Natural, U-Matcha Ginger, U-Matcha Yuzu, U-Matcha Roasted Rice, and the new U-Matcha Charcoal and U-Matcha Chai Teas.

Each tin of U-Matcha® Charcoal contains 20+ servings of gluten-free and sugar-free tea powder. The full U-Matcha™ collection is now available for purchase nationwide for $18.50 at natural and specialty food stores, through the company website (, mail-order catalogue and by calling 800.298.4TEA (832).
