Matcha powder ceremoniously whisked in water to create a frothy bowl of green tea can almost feel like a Zen experience. Not only is it enjoyable to make, but it is also delicious to drink. While other types of green tea offer your body great health benefits, Matcha is different. In fact, it is one of the most potent, healthy drinks on the planet.

Believe it or not, this tea has been around for hundreds of years. Over time, Japanese Buddhist monks have come to understand the numerous benefits that Matcha green tea provides for the body. Drinking one bowl in the morning can make a difference in your health. All in all, Matcha powder can help to keep your body and mind healthier and happier.

Matcha vs. Black Tea

May 2, 2017 10:12:48 AM

It may seem like most of the world is too busy drinking coffee these days to notice, but tea is actually the most widely consumed drink in the world (after water)! Full of vitamins and nutrients, tea has always been a delicious beverage staple with staying power.

While it is true that all tea comes from the same plant, this does not necessarily mean that all tea is fundamentally the same. However, when it comes to nutrition, some teas offer more benefits than others. So while black tea may be the more popular and widely used choice for daily drinkers, tea lovers may want to consider adding a bit more Matcha to their diet.

How to Get Healthy (and Stick to It)

Jan 11, 2017 12:39:12 PM

The New Year is upon us, which means it’s a great time to reevaluate your goals for 2017! Though we all set different types of goals for ourselves, one resolution seems to always be at the top of the charts—to get healthy! The start of the New Year motivates us to pave our path toward a healthier lifestyle, but unfortunately, only around 8-10% of people actually meet their health goals at the end of the year. Maybe it’s all of the delicious temptations around us (hello double chocolate ice cream cake!), or maybe we get discouraged when we hit a plateau during busy season. Regardless of the distractions, 2017 doesn’t have to be that way. By making these tiny adjustments in your daily routine, you’ll be on your way to a healthier, happier you in no time.

Last weekend, the Aiya team had the chance to exhibit at the annual Natural Products Expo West show held at the Anaheim Convention Center. Since this show was local to us, all it took was a short 30 minute commute. From 10am-6pm, the halls of the convention center were packed with over 71,000 attendees and 2,700 exhibitors—by far the largest trade show we've ever exhibited at. And although we've participated in NPEW shows quite a few times in the past, this was definitely the largest of them all, with exhibitors taking up the entire convention center and even spilling over to the Hilton Hotel next door.

Aiya at the Winter Fancy Food Show 2015

Jan 22, 2015 9:53:56 AM

Last weekend, the Aiya team flew out to beautiful San Francisco, CA for the annual Winter Fancy Food Show.  It was held at the Moscone Convention Center, which was only a short ten minute walk from our hotel.  Instead of renting a car this time, we walked to the show every day, taking in the crisp, chilly air and gorgeous scenery. With perfect weather and an amazing turn out, this show was definitely a great way to start out our exhibition at the 2015 trade shows.
