NEW Matcha Sakura Tea Series Found At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® !

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL) builds on this revival of cultural flavours with its latest beverage series Matcha Sakura, using ceremonial-grade matcha harvested with first-flush Tencha and stone-milled to preserve its superior quality, says David de Candia, Tea Master for CB&TL. These premium green tea leaves are sourced directly from a small-scale family farm in Shizuoka, Japan that has been around since 1923, in order to keep the traditional harvesting methods alive while the small batches ensure the quality of leaves. 

The tea leaves for this grade of matcha are shade-grown for almost 30 days, resulting in the vibrant green in colour, before being hand-plucked so that the leaves are not bruised. The leaves are then steamed and deveined, before being ground slowly to powder-like consistency in a granite mill over many hours.

Though it’s been around for a long time, many aren’t aware that green tea retains its beautiful colour because it’s unfermented and thus retains more of its nutritional benefits. It may also be revelation to some that Japanese green tea comes in different forms, with the most common being sencha and matcha; sencha is brewed as whole leaves while matcha is ground into a powder and mixed with water, resulting in a creamier flavour.

To further enhance its flavour and to bring a new experience to tea drinkers, the matcha is then blended with a Japanese sakura syrup, made from the delicate flowers that bloom in spring, to create two Matcha Sakura beverages: Matcha Sakura Ice Blended® drink (RM17.50/S and RM18.50/R), topped with sakura whipped cream and drizzled with sakura blossom syrup, and Matcha Sakura as a hot or iced latte (RM15.50/S and RM16.50/R respectively).

Going even beyond fair trade, CB&TL has a long history of working directly with tea farmers and not via third parties. CB&TL is a leader in sourcing, developing and creating premium tea-based beverages from plantations in 10 countries including China, Indonesia, Japan, Taiwan and Thailand. As each type of tea has different plucking seasons, working directly with growers means tea lovers get fresher, more exclusive flavours as the different leaves go through tailor-made processes in order to produce the right balance of flavours for each and every cup.

For the freshest matcha, timing is the most challenging aspect, says De Candia, and the Matcha Sakura is a contemporary take on a centuries-old tradition. Tea in Asia has always been more than a beverage, with tea drinking remaining central to various ceremonies that are still taking place today.

Enjoy CB&TL’s Matcha Sakura beverages for a limited time from 6th March at all outlets, or try the Fukamushi Sencha, a whole-leaf green tea with sweet, floral and grassy hints (RM12.50/pot and RM55 for 20 tea bags).

In conjunction with the launch of the Matcha Sakura tea series, CB&TL is also partnering with local handmade bath & cosmetics brand Wunderbath to create the Wunderbath x CB&TL Lip Balm (RM20.90) & Lip Stain (RM22.90), available at 6 selected CB&TL stores nationwide at Johor Bahru City Square, Gurney Plaza Penang, Sunway Pyramid, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur, Kuantan City Mall and Genting Premium Outlet.

#DutchLadyBreakfastChallenge To Kickstart A Nutritious Morning!

A strong day needs a strong start. As milk is one of nature’s most nutritious beverages, Dutch Lady PureFarm milk is a delicious and nutritious choice for Malaysian families at breakfast to rev up their mornings and to take on the day.

Mouse mommy also take the 5 days #dutchladybreakfastchallenge to promote the emphasis the important of breakfast and healthy meal to kick start our day! 

Amid the morning rush of getting to work and getting children to school on time, breakfast is often neglected. But it is also the most important meal of the day. After a night of sleep, our bodies will need to replenish its nutrient reserves – as it would have been 8 to 12 hours since we last ate. This is why a nutritious breakfast is crucial to start the day. It helps kick start our bodies and boost our energy levels to help us perform our everyday tasks and activities.

But we don’t always need to have a full meal for breakfast to jumpstart our day. In fact, a simple glass of milk can quickly fill our bodies up with the nutrients we need, and it makes it so convenient for us in the mornings when we have so little time to prepare breakfast.

Getting all the required nutrients in one meal is difficult.  But by drinking milk, it helps to fulfill nutrients that our body needs. Most people are aware that milk is rich with calcium, but milk actually provides other essential nutrients that the body cannot generate on its own, such as protein. 

Moreover, a glass of milk at breakfast helps prepare our body to absorb more goodness from meals for the rest of the day.

“Since 1963, Dutch Lady Malaysia has continuously worked on fulfilling the mission of nourishing a nation and building strong families. For the last 55 years, we have been championing for Malaysian families to have breakfast that include milk. Nutrients from milk help build stronger and healthier families. And having  breakfast as a family builds strong family bonds – both are important to start our day strong,” said Ms. Ramjeet Kaur Virik, Marketing Director, Consumer Dairy, Dutch Lady Malaysia.

Dutch Lady Malaysia’s nutritionist, Tan Huey Ghee has the answer: “Protein in milk serves as the building blocks of our muscles, bones, hair and nails1, and it also plays a major role in various biological processes, including the formation, regulation, repair and protection of our body. You can say that protein is the maintenance expert that keeps our bodies running smoothly throughout the day”.

“Research show that protein in milk contains nine essential amino acids (EAA) and it is easier to digest compared to other sources of protein2. In other words, milk is a rich and convenient source of high quality protein,” she added.

Tan further explained: “Unlike fat, protein cannot be stored in our bodies for future use. This means we are very reliant on our three daily meals to meet our protein needs. In this sense, our breakfasts should contain at least 20% to 25% of our daily nutritional requirement3”.

“Hence, drinking Dutch Lady PureFarm milk in the morning will make a lot of difference to our protein intake -- just by having a glass of milk, it will help you meet more than 50% of your daily protein intake at breakfast4, in an easy and convenient way,” she concluded.

As Malaysia’s No.1 milk5, drinking a glass of Dutch Lady PureFarm milk will give our bodies the essential nutrients it needs, such as : Protein helps build and repair the tissues6 in our body so that it will be in good condition; Calcium is the key to the growth and development of strong bones and teeth for children6, and helps adults maintain healthy bone mass6 to ensure an active lifestyle; Vitamin A allows our eyes to function properly6 and help us stay focused and alert, both at school and at work; Vitamin B2 supports the release of energy from carbohydrates, fats and proteins6Vitamin D aids the absorption and utilisation of calcium and phosphorus6.
