1. What exactly is Whole30?

Whole30 is a health-reset program. It guides people into a healthier lifestyle by recalibrating the palate and creating new food-related habits and behaviors. To make it easier, they’ve developed a certification program for brands, based on the Whole30 guidelines.

This was a seamless partnership for Cuzen, because all of our leaf blends are delivered whole, fully organic and uniquely pure, and there are no additives or added sugars in a cup of Cuzen Matcha. Matcha is also a good alternative to coffee, because it increases energy levels without giving you the jitters or a caffeine crash and boasts more antioxidants than many antioxidant-rich foods.

  • A person takes in the vegetal aroma of a sparkling matcha made with freshly-ground matcha leaves.
  • A woman pauses before taking a sip of an iced matcha latte in one of Cuzen's Perfect Matcha Latte Glasses.

The timing for this collaboration couldn’t be better as it’s that special part of the year for locking in new habits. Matcha is useful for your new year resolutions in more than one way: Not only can it be the centerpiece of a quiet and reflective morning ritual, but it can also increase your energy and give you a boost of antioxidants.
