Maitake (pronounced "My-Tah-Key) is a giant legendary mushroom in Japan, called "The King of Mushrooms" for its exquisite taste and flavor. It has been prized in traditional Japanese herbology for hundreds of years. Maitake, literally meaning "Dancing Mushroom", was named thus because people who found this precious mushroom deep in the mountains would begin dancing with joy.
Mai Green Tea uses highest quality Maitake mushrooms, grown in our bio-farm in Japan under stringent quality control standards. It is the same strain that has supported all major researches and studies.
Green tea is the most popular traditional drink in Japan and is served at every Japanese meal. Today, science has found a powerful antioxidant property in green tea. It contains polyphenols, a form of bioflavonoids, which act as a strong antioxidant and help fight free-radicals. Such activities of green tea are more effective than those of vitamin E and C in preserving particularly healthy skin. Green tea normally contains about one-third the caffeine of black tea.
The green tea used in Mai Green Tea is premier "matcha" tea which is used in the traditional Japanese tea ceremony and claims the lowest content of caffeine.
Japanese Tea Specialty
Premier Green Tea (Matcha) and Maitake Mushroom
The secret of Japanese longevity must be related to Japan's cuisine and culture. Green tea and mushrooms play key roles in both. They are always served with meals, having been a part of Japan's daily life for centuries.
Mai Green Tea is a powerful blend of highest quality Maitake mushroom, a potent immune-enhancer, and top quality Japanese green tea (matcha), a powerful antioxidant.
Mai Green Tea offers this healing power as a cup of delight.
Over thousands of years, some mushrooms have been highly regarded as longevity herbs that preserve youth and maintain health. They have played an important role in the development of medicine. In fact, some mushrooms and herbs are still used as the basic ingredients for most medicines. Modern science has also discovered the medicinal properties in such mushrooms and herbs, while the development of drug chemistry has left the simple applications of traditional medicine behind. Now, let's go back to the basics. Enjoy the natural flavor and taste of the valuable gifts from the mother earth!
Place one tea bag in a cup. Pour 1 cup (6-8 oz) of boiling water over the tea bag. Let steep for 2-3 minutes. Drink 2 to 3 cups daily or as you desire. Seal tight and refrigerate unused tea to keep the fresh flavor.
All natural and organically grown Maitake mushroom and premier Japanese green tea (matcha) leaves.
Mai Green Tea contains NO: Sugar, artificial colors or flavors, preservatives, chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
iHerb Customer Reviews
Being a breast cancer survivor, I want to add maitake mushrooms to my diet as well as green tea. This green tea has the health benefits and is the best tasting.
My first cup of Maitake was questionable; I had been used to other "commercial" teas. But, surprisingly, this tea has actually grown on me & I enjoy it! The mild scent is calming & I've actually dropped a few pounds after 2+ weeks of daily use (an added bonus I was not expecting!). It's a great product for those who like to sample the world of Teas!

Have tried a range of Green Tea bags in the past none of which really satisfied me as I believe raw leaf far superior. However the Grifron Maitake Mai Green Tea bag tasted far superior and is far more convenient if travelling than that of loose leaf plus a tea pot. I find I can get two cups from one tea bag and suits my palette satisfactorily. Highly recommend if not tried before.
A pleasant tea
