at blue32_mGreetings and welcome to MachoMatcha.com!

My name is Matthew Burgess, and I started this blog for no damn good reason except that I love matcha tea.

Ever since reading Transcend: Nine Steps to Living Well Forever by Ray Kurzweil and Terry Grossman, I’ve had a great appreciation for the longevity-enhancing properties of the drink.

And I’d like to spread the word. That’s all.

I’m a busy, multi-tasking entrepreneur. I work long days, and I love it that way. Eating well, proper supplementation, and exercise are critical to staying healthy, alert, and productive. Green tea, and in particular, matcha, is a big part of the energy and focus I need to see my days through.

Plus, I want to live long enough to live forever, as the book talks about. And a pillar of that plan is fighting the onset and spread of diseases. Matcha has very high level of antioxidants, and thereby can slow the progress of cancer cells.

And on the name of the site…no, I don’t fashion myself as some sort of machismo tough guy. It started when my wife Shana asked if I was drinking a “macho tea.” I said “Yes, it’s macho matcha and it makes me big and strong.” I know, kind of dorky, but I thought it was funning, and so the name kind of stuck around the house.

Hey Matthew,
I just found your blog and love it. We just came out with a new matcha product you may be interested in. We’ve fortified it with a lot of different super-fruits and adaptagenic herbs and used one of the best tea sommeliers out there to create a great tasting energy matcha tea. If you’re interested in trying it let me know and I’ll send you a sample.
Keep blogging, love your stuff,

Hi Matthew, just stumbled here, great stuff! Can you tell me what Kurzweil said specifically about matcha that got you jazzed to drink it? I’ve got what I feel is the world’s highest-grade artisanal matcha, so I’m excited to hear Kurzweil thinks highly of it. I’ve also designed and handcrafted some ceramics aimed especially for drinking matcha in a new, more modern way. Check out the site when you have a free moment …. thanks Matthew.

Hey Matthew,

How many times a day do you usually drink matcha? What is your routine? How much do you usually drink in a sitting and at what times of the day?

I’m just curious about what works for people.
