psfkUNFILTERED: PSFK Staff Writer Simone Spilka and Site Editor Bogar Alonso test whether matcha green tea offers comparable amounts of caffeine without the crash

Here at PSFK HQ, there is a much-loved coffee culture. Some of the team love the craft itself: the art of brewing, savoring, fighting off coworkers to the pot. We arrive to the office at 9:30am with the anticipation of walking into the kitchen to find a pot already brewing. Some go for one cup and some for three, but PSFK Site Editor Bogar and I go for a cleaner and greener form of caffeine.

Enter matcha: a fine-ground powdered green tea that offers a range of health benefits alongside a kick of caffeine.
