GLYKEN BIRDNEST MATCHA
20g x 10 sachets
What is Matcha?
The tea it’s made from – matcha – has been consumed for more than a thousand years. According to some, it also boasts a number of health benefits for those who drink it.
Both matcha and traditional green tea come from the Camellia sinensis plant, and both are green tea. However, green tea plants which are used for matcha are shade-grown for about a month before processing. This increases the levels of chlorophyll in the leaves, which gives matcha its vivid green colour. Once harvested, the leaves, or tencha, are stripped of their stems and veins and ground into a fine, silky powder.
Shade-grown green tea
As matcha is high in antioxidants, a lot of people believe it prevents heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and can even be used as a dieting aid. “The health benefits associated with matcha are by the far the biggest reason we are seeing people order this drink.”

BIRDNEST WHITE COFFEE
What is White Coffee?
There are many versions of this historical coffee from Malaysia. Some people might think white coffee means coffee containing milk in some form.
A long time ago, it was discovered that by partially roasting coffee beans turned the beans white and released a succulent nutty flavor. It requires a lot of skill and knowledge to get the flavour right.
To put it simply, White Coffee is simply coffee beans roasted half way through and at a lower temperature, giving it a whitish color and nutty taste.
Is White Coffee healthier?
It's generally believe to be possible that White coffee has more health benefits compared to a dark roast coffee bean.
Because the longer we roast the coffee, the greater the oxidation. The lighter the roast, the higher the chlorogenic acid content, which protects human cells against oxidation and inflammation.
Added with Glyken Birdnest extracts, it further strengthened the health benefits while enjoying the goodness and a smooth Glyken White coffee.

White coffee has retained the natural and earthy flavors from the original coffee bean.
